Online Placement Test and Speaking Tests

All students coming to Global School of English for a language course must complete our online placement test in order for us to process their application and send them a confirmation letter. The test is part of our online learning website, LearningZone. In addition students from certain countries who require a visa to study must also complete our speaking tests. This is explained in detail on the How Do I Apply for a Course? page of our website. The two PDF's below explain how to do these tests.
