US English Spoken Language Skills


The US English Spoken Language Skills assessment represents a great leap forward in pre-hire testing technology. The test evaluates a person's ability to carry on a verbal conversation with a native American English speaker. Test takers utilize both their web browser to speak, read, and listen in English.
