Is LanguageCert Test of English (LTE) similar to LanguageCert International ESOL exams?

There are certainly a number of differences such as test structure and duration, but the main differences are as follows:

  • LTE is a single multi-level exam which assesses language proficiency across six levels (A1-C2) while LanguageCert International ESOL qualifications only test one level at a time (e.g. B2).
  • LTE is one exam which assesses the candidate’s Listening & Reading level, while all LanguageCert International ESOL exams consist of 2 exams (Written and Spoken) which assess all four language skills (Listening, Reading, Writing & Speaking).
  • The LTE qualification comprises three different tests (LTE A1-B1 paper-based, LTE A1-C2 computer-based and LTE A1-C2 computer-based adaptive test). All LanguageCert International ESOL qualifications comprise only one test.
  • There is no pass mark for LTE. LanguageCert International ESOL requires an overall score of at least 50% in both Written and Spoken exam for candidates to pass.
  • LTE assesses English for general and specific purposes (e.g. for work), while all LanguageCert International ESOL exams assess everyday practical English.
