A proficiency test

The student or speaker of a foreign language takes a proficiency test when he or she needs a qualification of linguistic ability in order to gain access to the working or academic world.
CELU is a proficiency test which aims at evaluating the student’s present reading, writing and speaking skills in real life contexts. No specific preparatory course is required to pass the exam. A single written and oral examination is used to assess a person's ability to accomplish the linguistic tasks proposed. According to his or her performance, a candidate may reach one of these levels: Basic, Intermediate or Advanced. Only the latter two levels are certified.
