Why test your Business English?

A free online Business English test provides quick insights into your ability to communicate in English at work. This test provides a “jumping off spot” (a beginning point) for thinking about your professional English ability, specifically in terms of idiom. Idiomatic phrases are “sound bites” that cannot be understood literally – but carry a lot of meaning! Without idiom knowledge, you cannot thrive in the Business English world. Note: This unique “English for work” test does not evaluate grammar and is intended for B1 level and up. The insights we gain from your Business English test will help us recommend the best Business English course for you.

After you take the test.

In addition to the free Business English test, we offer a free English Center level test of grammar and vocabulary. That test is good for all levels and contains 50 questions. You will receive scoring and course advice by email. Take the English Center level test now.
