What is the Writing Test?

The Writing Test aims to assess what you can do with what you know about the language(s) that you chose on our platform. Proficiency in a language means you can use the language to communicate in real-life situations.

To whom are the tests available?

The tests will be available for languages you chose on our platform, regardless of whether or not you’re a native speaker.

Why should I take the test?

The test aims to get to know your language competences. The more we know about your skills, the easier it is to allocate the right jobs to you.

What are the skills I need to be proficient?

Through various test questions, we assess your reading comprehension, semantic and grammatical competence, understanding of cultural aspects, and proofreading skills.

How long does the test take?

The test takes a maximum of 30 minutes to complete. 

Each section has its own time in which you should complete the task. The time is indicated at the top of the screen.

Make sure to stay within the set time for each task. 

What if I don’t complete the test in the given time?

There are prompts within the test to assist you in completing the test. Pay careful attention to the guiding prompts. 

If you don’t complete the test, an assessment of your test is done, and feedback on the outcome guides you on prospects.

Can I quit the test and retake it later?

It is not recommended to quit the test once started. Failure to complete the test in one sitting means you have failed the language proficiency test. You will, therefore, have used an opportunity to complete the test.

What happens after I have completed the test?

Once you have completed the test, an information screen informs you of the test outcome and your language proficiency level. The final score will be based on the following proficiency scale: basic, intermediate and fluent. 

You also have the opportunity to improve your result. The best score will be selected. Should you not succeed, you are perhaps not proficient in that particular language, and may opt to add other languages you know.
