BBSI Online English Language Test...


Test your English Language and Grammar Skills on-Line with our English Reading and Writing Test

The following on-Line English language test has been devised by BBSI to enable potential students to ascertain their current English language levels and study English in England at our English Language School and Business College in the south-coast resort of Bournemouth. We would emphasise that the test is designed as an approximate gauge only for the purposes of deciding which of our many English language courses, business English courses and specialised courses might be suitable for you to study. Once we know your test score, we will be in a position to provide you with appropriate advice.

This test contains 55 questions and tests all levels of English from Beginner to Advanced levels. You must complete all 55 questions and submit your result to BBSI and provide some indication as to your preferred course for study.  We will then respond to you and advise you accordingly. Good luck! We hope that you find the test enjoyable. It should not take you long to complete.
