Certify Your English

NHC Tests of English help people certify their daily English proficiency. The Tests are dedicated to assessing and validating the English language usage of non-native English speakers.

The Tests of English are international language exams for speakers of English as a foreign language. The tests are designed to evaluate and accredit the written and spoken English proficiency. They come in six levels compatible with The Common European Framework for Language Reference (CEFR) from A1 to C2. The alignment of NHC tests to the CEFR has been established by mapping the test specifications to the CEFR descriptors. Work is in progress to further improve the robustness of the alignment on the basis of empirical data..
