English for International Universities and for Professionals

There are several tests to evaluate the English proficiency for those who do not speak it as their mother tongue. Four of them are wide-ranging and Internationally recognised:

  • TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language)
  • TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication)
  • IELTS (International Language EnglishTesting System)
  • CPE (Certificate of Proficiency in English)

The TOEFL and TOEIC tests are American. The TOEFL is administered by the Educational Testing Service (New Jersey) and a subsidiary of the TOEIC. The TOEFL is aimed at assessing the English of those wishing to enter university in the United States or Canada, therefore, vocabulary and texts more focused on academic subjects, while the TOEIC, subsequently created, is proposed to be more geared towards those who want to demonstrate proficiency in English focused on the work market.

The CPE and IELTS examinations are British. IELTS has a goal similar to the TOEFL but it is the responsibility of the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate (UCLES), a department of the University of Cambridge (UK), together with the British Council, and prevails in England, other UK countries , Australia and New Zealand.

The CPE is the most advanced of a series of five tests designed to assess different levels of proficiency in English, also the responsibility of UCLES. Although the CPE also serves to demonstrate English proficiency of applicants to higher education in the United Kingdom, their goal is more general, much sought in Europe for those who want to demonstrate proficiency in English focused on the work market.

The complete series of tests are as follows:

  • KET (Key English Test) - Cambridge Level One
  • PET (Preliminary English Test) - Cambridge Level Two
  • FCE (First Certificate in English) - Cambridge Level Three
  • CAE (Certificate in Advanced English) - Cambridge Level Four
  • CPE (Certificate of Proficiency in English) - Cambridge Level Five
