We chose to work with Linguaskill because it is a test based on international standards, and therefore transparent and internationally recognizable.
We appreciate the ease of administration, as well as the possibility to use an external test with automated results, as they are impartial and not subject to debate.
The Business English modules’ content is extremely valuable for our hospitality and business management students.
