To assess your level of proficiency before you start a Berlitz program, we conduct a general Berlitz language test – online, orally, or both. This lets us – and you – see which course is right for you.

Are you interested in testing your current level of proficiency independent of a Berlitz language course or preparing for an external language exam? We’ve got you covered here as well. The following options are available at Berlitz:

Language certificates and diplomas

We bring you up to standard for internationally recognized language certificates and offer exam preparation courses for the following language tests. Many Berlitz Centers also serve as official examination centers where you can register directly for the exam.
