Cambridge Assessment English, a not-for-profit department of the University of

Linguaskill. Globally recognised as an accurate English language test,

Linguaskill acts as an effective tool to help employers across Asia ensure that

their teams have the language skills required to compete on an international



Francesca Woodward, Global Managing Director, English of Cambridge University

Press & Assessment, said: "Linguaskill helps employers recruit people with the

right language skills – not just a passive knowledge of English, but the

ability to communicate effectively. As such, Linguaskill was developed to

simplify the process of determining the language skills of job applicants,

audit the language skills of existing staff to plan and evaluate training."


Linguaskill is produced by Cambridge Assessment English, which develops the

world's leading examinations for language learners and teachers, including the

Cambridge English Qualifications and IELTS. It covers the four key language

skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing using advanced artificial

intelligence to deliver an accurate assessment of language skills in as little

as 48 hours. Results are aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference

(CEFR), the global standard for describing language ability.


In response to a huge demand for English skills for both the educational and

workplaces around the world, Cambridge Assessment English has developed

Linguaskill Test. This high-tech, computer-based exam, which comes in 2

versions (Linguaskill General and Linguaskill Business), is the innovative

English assessment solution that education institutions and employers are

looking for.

"Our exams have helped more than 55 million people worldwide to learn English

and prove their skills to the world, and our unique experience and expertise

puts Cambridge in a prime position to help bridge the communications gap in the

Asia Pacific region. As Asia continues to internationalise, stronger English

language skills will help businesses unlock opportunities and compete on the

global stage. Linguaskill will help organisations to recruit the right people

and shape more effective training programmes," added Francesca Woodward.


Linguaskill is easy to administer for individuals or groups of candidates,

because it is one test for people of all levels, from basic to advanced. The

multi-level online test also simplifies testing by allowing organisations to

operate and invigilate at their own venue. Within 48 hours, administrators of

the test can access a comprehensive, in-depth report. The speediness of the

reports allows organisations to make informed decisions on recruiting

candidates with the right language skills and helping individuals improve their

language proficiency over time.


Companies are already integrating Linguaskill as a core aspect of their

in-house training programme. A number of banking groups have worked closely

with Cambridge Assessment English to set internal English standards across

various jobs levels, and Linguaskill is used to screen new candidates, as well

as a tool for competency levels assessment, as a standard for internal

promotion. It has been a huge motivator for staff to attend language training
