Determining language level – the KERN Assess™ placement test

With KERN Assess™, we offer you the option to test your own language skills at no cost. Your language skills are tested using a multiple choice test and you are then assigned to one of twelve practice-related skills levels. The test assesses all the relevant language skills, such as grammar, linguistic register, use of idiom and reading comprehension. It provides you with a true assessment of your level of performance, based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

The flexible language test for companies: lingoscore™

The KERN Assess™ placement test is an online-based, highly variable language testing program which can also be adjusted to your individual requirements. KERN AG Training thus offers a simple way to determine your employees' language skills at no cost. This allows you to design your ideal test program from a wide choice of available modules. The KERN Assess™ program is currently available for English, French, Italian, Spanish and German. The user interface can also be set to the required source language, allowing all candidates to read the test instructions in their own native language. If required, the modules can be designed to suit each individual candidate's field of activity. The test results are recorded in a database and can be sorted, filtered and exported based on different criteria, such as overall result, partial result or duration required to complete the test. In addition, KERN Assess™ can also be used to monitor learning progress for every desired language level or, for example, to screen job applicants irrespective of any training programmes. KERN Assess™ is thus an efficient tool for personnel development managers in terms of further foreign language training schemes.

Verbal placement test

Please note the following: A written placement test can of course only ever provide an indication of your language skills. To obtain a definitive result, you will need to complete a verbal assessment with a native speaker. We are happy to test your active language skills in a telephone interview for a small administrative fee. Please email us in advance with your preferred appointment details.
