The questions are based on examples of authentic English from the international workplace and are prepared by linguists and English-language specialists around the world.

Both ETS and Chauncey are recognized as leaders in the field of measurement and certification.

Your TOEIC score will provide you with a standardized and quantifiable measurement of English proficiency. For example, a TOEIC score of 605 to 780 would read as follows on your resume: “Basic working proficiency in English – Able to satisfy routine social demands and limited work requirements.” The TOEIC test is recognized worldwide and can be a valuable asset in seeking employment.
TOEFL, Test of English Foreign Language
College Platon students are tutored for entrance in McGill University, Concordia University and the Université de Montréal. Our program prepares students for the TOEFL test. The test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) program provides English proficiency testing services for international students planning to study in the United States, Canada, or other countries where English is the primary language of instruction. The TOEFL test is made available worldwide to all persons, regardless of age, gender, race, nationality, religion, or political views. The Institutional Testing Program is offered primarily to assist institutions in placing students in English courses at the appropriate level of difficulty or to determine whether additional work in English is necessary before an individual can undertake studies at an institution where English is the medium of instruction. The paper-based test has three sections: Listening Comprehension, Structure and Written Expression, and Reading Comprehension. There are at least 140 questions on the test. The number of test questions and the amount of time needed to take the TOEFL test may vary from one test administrator to another.
Cambridge ESOL Examinations
Cambridge ESOL exams are the world’s leading range of certificates for learners of English. Each year they are taken by over 2 million people, in 130 countries. Cambridge ESOL exams are recognized internationally by universities, corporations, professional associations and government.
Cambridge tests all four language skills – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The Speaking test is a face-to-face interview with a certified Examiner. It is as close to a real-life situation as a test can be: candidates are tested for their ability to interact spontaneously as opposed to planned responses, and to manage discourse.
Research shows that Cambridge ESOL exams motivate candidates to develop real and well-rounded English rather than learning by rote (memorization). This means that a candidate’s understanding of English is improved and valid for real life situations in an English environment – like doing course work (speaking to professors and collaborating with students on projects, writing essays and reports) and communicating at work (team work with colleagues, writing reports, letters, emails).
