LanguageCert and the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR)
All exams developed by LanguageCert are aligned to the CEFR levels. In meeting these requirements, exam materials writers adhere to the highest international standards based on their extensive expertise, knowledge and understanding of the CEFR.
Questions use real-world texts from authentic sources, as well as a variety of task types across all levels, such as multiple-choice selection, matching, and providing open responses to prompts.
LanguageCert places great store by accurate and meaningful measurement that reflects real-world performance. This is important in the context of LanguageCert as a Home Office approved provider of SELT exams for UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI).
LanguageCert obtained Ofqual recognition in 2017. Thorough scrutiny by NARIC UK in 2019 helped it to achieve a high rating in the UK Home Office’s 2019 official tender to appoint providers of SELT exams for UKVI. Further validation of LanguageCert ESOL exams will be conducted in due course.
