Business English Test

Why Test Your Business English?

An online test in business English provides quick insight into your knowledge and skills when it comes to communication in the workplace. This test serves as a starting point to reflect on your professional English skills, especially your knowledge of idioms. Idiomatic expressions are essential in the business world; sometimes they are misunderstood or not understood, while they can be of great significance. Without knowledge of these ‘sound bites’, you cannot function optimally in an English-speaking business environment. 

Please note that this unique test for ‘English for work’ does not assess your grammar and is intended for levels B1 and above.

What happens after the test?

After completing the test, you will receive your score and personalised course recommendations by email. These insights help us select the right business English course for you, which suits your level.
