Do the Paper and Computer-Based versions of the test have the same duration?
The Computer-Based version is an adaptive exam, which offers a shorter in length testing session than the Paper-Based version, since a smaller number of questions is needed to determine the candidate’s level.
How is the Speaking test conducted?

Each candidate is examined individually, so they can perform at their best. The interview of the Speaking test is conducted by an Interlocutor who does not assess. The evaluation takes place at a later stage by a Marker.

Can the candidates take the three LanguageCert USAL esPro tests separately?

Candidates may take the tests in any combination to meet their specific needs. (e.g. the Speaking test can be taken as a standalone exam if only proof of the speaking ability has to be provided, for example for a job that requires certain skills).

Can the learners use a dictionary during the exam?

Candidates are not allowed to use dictionaries or any other aids during the LanguageCert USAL esPro exams.

Why do the PeopleCert name and logo appear on the screen during the LanguageCert USAL esPro Computer-Based test?
PeopleCert is the mother company of LanguageCert and it is responsible for the administration of its exams.
