General

Why should you choose LanguageCert International ESOL qualifications over other English language exams?
  • There are separate Written and Spoken exams leading to two separate certificates. Written and Spoken exams of the same or even of a different level can be taken together or one at a time according to the candidates’ convenience (e.g. Speaking can be taken as a standalone exam if only proof of the speaking ability has to be provided, for example for a job).
  • Grammar and Vocabulary are integrated in the three sections of the Written exam, and are not examined separately.
  • The Written exam is uninterrupted, without time limits per section (Reading – Writing), so that each candidate allocates their time however they wish/need to, without waiting the other candidates to finish.
  • The interview of the Spoken exam is always recorded, guaranteeing impartiality and ensuring the potential for remarking.
  • Each candidate is examined individually by a LanguageCert Interlocutor, who engages in the conversation and is not responsible for the candidate’s assessment. The evaluation takes place at a later stage by a LanguageCert Marker.

What is the main difference between City & Guilds and LanguageCert International ESOL qualifications?

LanguageCert International ESOL qualifications originate from the corresponding City & Guilds exams, which were acquired by LanguageCert in 2015. The format is quite similar, however all the acquired assessment materials underwent rigorous content evaluation and improvement by experts in English language testing.

Are the City & Guilds exams still recognised by ASEP?

Although the City & Guilds English language exams have been discontinued, City & Guilds English language certificates of levels B1, B2, C1 and C2 continue to be recognised by ASEP in Greece, provided that a person holds both IESOL and ISESOL certificates of the same level.
