Berlitz’s language competence tests and evaluation service can be a great help to you in the selection of new employees since it can easily be integrated into the hiring process—beyond getting an assessment of the candidates’ general command of the foreign language, you will get a clear picture of their linguistic competences. It is also a great tool in designing the career paths of your existing staff as it can assess both their general and business competencies in the chosen foreign language.

Screen your applicants on the basis of their linguistic competence, and with our help you will you find the most suitable ones among them! Make sure that your employees can communicate with confidence in a foreign language both in the domestic and the international markets.

The test results are sorted into levels of competence determined by Berlitz’s own system as well as by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
