The Next Generation in Language Testing

Taking a language exam used to be a string of decisions other people made. You were supposed to bend to fit the schedule. Until today.

LanguageCert gives you freedom. It lets you choose when you want to take your exam and you can register up to 2 days prior to your desired exam date. And as for the exam? Just sit for the part you’re ready to ace and get a certificate just for that. Then you can focus on another part. Your results will be available super quickly, and your e-certificate & digital badge at the same time as your results. Neat!

The history of LanguageCert

Heritage & Innovation

  • The origins of LanguageCert can be traced back to the Pitman Examinations Institute and City & Guilds of London. 

    Several decades later, in 2015 and still in London, PeopleCert Qualifications Ltd acquires the intellectual property of City & Guilds ESOL International qualifications. The qualifications are reviewed, updated, modernised and launched globally as LanguageCert.

    LanguageCert is an Awarding Organisation dedicated to language skills assessment and certification. It is a member of PeopleCert, a global leader in the certification industry, that has been delivering millions of exams in 200 countries.
