The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) measures the language proficiency of people who want to study or work where English is used as a language of communication. It uses a nine-band scale to clearly identify levels of proficiency, from non-user (band score 1) through to expert (band score 9).
The Language Proficiency Index (LPI) Test is an English language test of reading and writing, originally developed at The University of British Columbia, and is administered by Paragon Testing Enterprises, a subsidiary of The University of British Columbia.
The LPI Test provides a consistent and standardized measurement of an examinee’s competency in English, and many post-secondary institutions in British Columbia and other parts of Canada use LPI scores to assess the English language proficiency of prospective and current students for entrance into their academic programs.
The assessment information provided to post-secondary institutions, companies, and professional associations through the LPI Test allows organizations to recruit employees and certify members who have the necessary reading and writing skills to carry out key responsibilities, and to represent their organizations effectively.
As the industry leader, the TOEIC program has set the standard for assessing English-language skills needed in the workplace for over 35 years. With about 7 million tests administered every year, the TOEIC tests are the most widely used around the world. 14,000+ organizations across more than 160 countries trust TOEIC scores to make decisions.
Whether you are a teacher looking for ESL teaching materials, a beginner who's just starting out, or an advanced student who wants to hone and polish reading comprehension, conversation, and writing skills, these resources can take you to the next level.
