Abstract

As a widely used language in the corporate environment, English plays a key role in a university graduate’s ability to land a position and remain employable. English Language Learners (ELLs) need tools to inform their progress; How good is my English? Am I progressing? What do I need to do next? Educators, on the other hand, need tools to guide students on their learning process while planning courses, delivering classes, assessing learning; in short tools that enable them to make objective, data-driven decisions. Students and educators alike benefit from key findings that the Global Scale of English research produced, as well as web-delivered assessment instruments that offer immediate, reliable results for students and graduates to demonstrate language proficiency. Join us for an informative and reflective session covering both Pearson’s Global Scale of English, and the Versant English Test. Increase your knowledge about their characteristics and benefits, as presented by our experienced Educational Coaches
