THE RIGHT CANDIDATE?
Through oral, structural and writing tests – on or off-site -, we evaluate the fluency of the candidates, as well as their grammatical and vocabulary knowledge. The results are presented in accord with the scale of the Common European Framework.
The client therefore knows whether the candidate is in a position to deal with the situations to which they will be exposed in the work place.
With over 10 thousand candidates evaluated, our team is capable of carrying out a large number of tests in a short period of time. The results are obtained quickly and are of a high quality. The three types of test (oral, structural, and writing) can be contracted separately, according to the needs of each client.
