Take A New Test Aimed At The World’s English-Language Learners
It’s tuff to master English. It’s eventough for people born in America, who (or whom?) are often confused by too/to/two many konfusing things.
So you can only imagine how tough it is for non-English speakers trying to learn the tongue.
As these nonnative speakers struggle, they want to know how they’re doing. And now there’s a new way to find out. EF Education First, a Swiss education company, noticed that its students wanted an inexpensive, standardized way to test their knowledge before paying for official language tests for university admissions. In response, the company has released its own free, online standardized test.
According to the above paragraph, what demands does the test meet?
A) There’s no cost for taking the test.
B) It is available on the Internet.
C) It is standardized.
D) All of the above
The answer is D) All of the above. (Isn’t it always?)
There are an estimated 1.5 billion English-language learners in the world, and that number is expected to exceed 2 billion by the end of the decade. The EF Standard English Test, or EFSET, hopes to provide this group with a self-assessment tool.
Continue reading and take a sample test to see how your English skills stack up.
