LanguageCert LTE: don't forget!

Did you know that LanguageCert combines two types of exams? 

Yes, LanguageCert LTE and LanguageCert ESOL. There are many differences between the two exams, and these are the main ones:

LanguageCert ESOL

LanguageCert LTE

Consists of 2 exams (one oral, one written).

1 written exam only.

Each of these exams has only one test.

The exam consists of 3 tests: Listening and Reading (level A1 to B1), Listening and Reading (level A1 to C2), and Writing (level A1 to C2).

Evaluate only one level at a time according to the candidate's choice.

Evaluate all levels (A1 to C2) in the same exam.

Requires a score of at least 50% to pass the exam.

It is impossible to miss the exam; it allows you to know your level of English, from level A1 to C2.

Test your current level of English.

Tests your general English level, and also on specific topics (for example, for business).

Before signing yourself up, it’s necessary to be aware of the structure of the test to know exactly what to expect. So basically, the LanguageCert test of English consists of four parts: Oral comprehension, oral expression, written comprehension, and written expression. 

The structure of each part:

  • The oral comprehension includes four exercises, 26 questions: Each question is presented differently among an MCQ and questions without a suggested answer. The mediums used in this part of LanguageCert are conversations, single sentences, and monologues.
  • The reading comprehension includes four exercises, 26 questions: Each question is presented differently among multiple-choice, blank texts, associations, and comprehension questions. The type of support used in this part is short and mid-length texts on the same subject.
  • The written expression includes 2 exercises: Namely two questions from an essay as well as a letter to write on a given subject.

The speaking part includes 4 exercises: These different exercises aim to express yourself in English.

The candidate’s overall result of the LanguageCert LTE is evaluated by measuring their ability to read and listen. Then, the candidate will receive a score on a scale from 0-100, which also translates into an English language level. 

The test scale is aligned to six levels (A1 - C2) as it sets out in the CEFR (the Common European Framework of Reference). 

All the test-takers will get a Statement of Results that states their overall score and the CEFR level. They also receive a score for performance in the Listening and Reading Tests.

The candidate needs to pass a test consisting of a variety of authentic tasks to evaluate the reading and listening skills, vocabulary knowledge, and awareness of lexico-grammatical structure. 

  • To pass the listening test, you will be required to listen to a few spoken materials, including dialogues, long conversations, talks, or interviews. Its main goal is to evaluate your ability to understand real-life and work-related conversations.
  • To pass the reading test, you will be required to read short and long texts on real-life or work-related topics. The main goal is to see if you can understand the purpose of the test, look for a specific piece of information or a line of argument.

Can someone fail the test?

No, LanguageCert LTE tests are not passing or failing tests. The test results only indicate proficiency levels in Listening, Reading, and Writing in English.

It’s very easy! The registration process for the LanguageCert can be tailored depending on the needs of each candidate. You can schedule the exam up to four hours before and reschedule it when needed. It’s that flexible and simple. 

Next, you will need to download the software for the exam - you will be provided with a step-by-step guide. Find a quiet place where you can’t be distracted or disturbed, turn off your phone, and you are all set to do the test. 

You will receive the results of the tests in 2-3 business days. 

Can you take the exam remotely?

There are two different ways you can take the LanguageCert exams: Online or at a test center. 

If you choose to take the exam remotely, know that LanguageCert managed to help all candidates to take any language exam online whenever they want. You don’t have to travel or deal with the stress of passing an exam in an unsettling environment. And obviously, there is no greater place to take any exam than your own home. Just make sure you have a computer, camera, headphones, and reliable internet connection.

This is the best part: The LTE certificates never expire. You can rely on this diploma to help your career for as long as you need it. 

However, it is best to check whether there are any specific requirements from receiving organizations. 

When will the LanguageCert LTE Certificate Be Available?

  • Certificate of Achievement & e-certificate would be available in 2-3 business days.
  • Results will be sent to you by email directly or to the Test Centre where you took the exam.
