About the test

The English Comprehension and Communication test evaluates a candidate’s verbal ability with the English language as well as competency in communicating ideas, meanings, and information through both spoken and written methods.

It’s an ideal test for pre-employment screening of candidates applying for a variety of roles. A good candidate for any job that requires a good ability to communicate in English will be able to display competency with understanding and selecting the correct words for a given context, avoiding and resolving miscommunication with clear and concise messages, and be able to use their language skills to actively listen to others as well as present their ideas persuasively.

This test requires candidates to answer multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank questions to demonstrate their business-level English communication skills in real-world scenarios.
