Lingualearn Tests

Silver Service Language Tests

Consultants from the Lingualearn network are able to offer a very fast and flexible language testing service. We can test at almost any time and anywhere. The tests use well-designed criterion-referenced rating scales. These tests are suitable for screening applicants for positions that require language skills. Our telephone and email tests take about 45 minutes and cost around £100 per test for French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Swedish and Italian. Each test is followed by a report on the language skills of the testee, and an estimate of their general language proficiency. Quotations are available for large numbers of tests and for other languages. Where necessary, our tests include a security system to ensure the correct identity of the testee.

Gold Service Language Tests

For senior appointments, we suggest a longer and more reliable test taking about two hours, with multiple raters to obtain a relatively high inter-rater reliability coefficient. Each test is followed by a detailed report on the language skills of the testee, and an estimate of their general language proficiency.  Quotations are available on request, but the cost of such tests is in the region of £160 per test.

Can-do Instruments

We have developed a number of can-do scales that can be used for proficiency, diagnostic and placement testing.

These can-do instruments:

  • are low cost (~£40 per student-test; minimum of 15 tests; lower cost available for academic research purposes)
  • are fast to administer and mark
  • are easy to use
  • give a rough estimate of proficiency
  • give information on what students can do in all 4 skills
  • can be sent by email

The versions currently available are for English speakers being tested in any foreign language:

  • SEI4: Languages for academic purposes (not sensitive at low proficiency levels)
  • SEI5: Languages for academic purposes
  • BSKILLS4: Languages for business purposes

With certain precautions, the instruments may also be used by non-native speakers of English who have elementary + level in English. SEI5 is also available in Chinese.


The prices quoted above do not include VAT and any consultancy/administration/set up charges that may be necessary.

The minimum order for this service is currently £200 + VAT
