English Pre-departure Level Test

Determine your English Level before you leave

To help you prepare for your study abroad program, ELS has developed an English language proficiency test that you can sit before you leave. This test is a simple, fast and affective way of assessing your current skill level in English. Once you have the results, you can decide on the course duration required to achieve your goals. You will also know if you have the required competency to undertake the TOEFL or Business English programs, both of which require an advanced level of English.

You can register to sit the test at one of the many ELS centers with one of our qualified councilors. The test includes:

A full assessment of your English proficiency: this 30 to 50 minute online test assesses your grammar, listening, speaking, and writing skills.

Immediate feedback: right after the test you will receive an automated response detailing your results in both grammar and listening comprehension.

Teacher feedback: within 72 hours after the exam, your work will be assessed by one of our qualified teachers and you will receive feedback on your ability in both oral and written expression.
