English placement test

If you want to take a General English or an exam preparation course at our centre, then you must take a placement test. It is a test designed to determine the level of English you possess at the moment. Our expert will designate you a level according to your English language proficiency.

This test consists of two parts: Writing and Speaking. In the first part, Writing, you will need to answer a series of questions in written form. And in the second part, the procedure is similar, but simply in oral form. These questions cover a range of topics related to daily life.

The placement test takes place every Thursday at 14:00 and it costs 80 lei. 

You do not need to register for the test in advance, so simply come at our centre, stop by the Finance office (Comptabilite) to pay the fee for the placement test (80 MDL). Then you will be directed to the room where the test is going to take place.

If, however, you already have a certificate from another centre confirming your level, then you can skip the placement test procedure and you can just sign up for General English courses immediately. The same policy does not apply if you want to take a preparation course at our centre.

Cambridge English authorised exam centre, Moldova is one of the few centres that works with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). It is a standard European guideline used to describe the proficiency of learners of foreign languages, so it is very possible that your certificate issued by another centre does not abide by the same system. Our expert uses this guideline to designate you an appropriate level, so you can rest assured that this assessment will be objective and just.

However, if you want to take a preparation course but you have a certificate issued by another centre confirming the level you have after completing the course, then you can take the placement test at our centre free of charge.

If you wish to take an exam preparation course but you do not possess the necessary level, you can always sign up for a General English course, after which your English will improve significantly and you will be eligible to attend an exam preparation course.

Come at our centre and register for our courses ASAP!
