The next set of Language Examinations will take place in London during the week commencing 23rd November 2015.

Please note that candidates who have applied and paid for a Language Examination but have to defer their examination after the application deadline, will be charged an Administration Fee before they can take the examination at a later date.

Provision will be made for main Western European languages (English, French, German, Italian and Spanish) and other languages can be arranged.

The format of the language examinations for both 'English' and 'Non-English' examinations has been revised this year.  Candidates' linguistic proficiency will continue to be tested to the linguistic level required by the Foreign Office or highest level of CloL, whereby the standard expected will be high enough to ensure:

  • an interesting and well-balanced commentary delivered in a confident manner over a full day
  • ease of conversation with visitors, giving additional information and explanations when requested
  • the ability to summarise information given in leaflets, brochures etc.

As in previous years, workshops for both 'English' and 'Non-English' examinations will be held prior to the examinations themselves to assist candidates with their preparation, and further information on the format will be published on the website shortly.

Usually other test centres are only set up if there is a training course in progress with numbers that make this economically viable, but wherever you are do let us know your requirements.

The deadline for applying for this year's language exams will be at the end of September and those interested in applying are invited to email
