The test is based on the same methodology as IELTS except that it assesses your English level for Business rather than your general English. The results are presented in a report that indicates your ability in the assessed skills of Listening and Reading/Language Knowledge and Grammar. The report describes what you can and cannot do in these language areas. The test is FREE for everyone including non-members!
