How the placement test works ?

 

The placement test takes place in 2 stages:

- students receive a link to take an online test before arriving.

- on the day of the placement tests, students complete a written production and then take an individual oral interview with a teacher. 

Based on these tests, the team will assess each student's level and place them in the appropriate group.
