A modern and interactive contest
This year’s contest has an improved interface, post-contest access to student answers and a greater emphasis on listening skills.
Focus on listening
More listening questions, plus a separate mark for listening comprehension.
Useful for your lessons
Access to a full analysis of your students’ answers – useful as a teaching tool.
Easy to organise
Arrange as many contest sessions as you wish, plus there’s no papers to return.
Audio to test listening skills
Understanding spoken English is an important real-world skill, which is why it’s at the heart of the online test. For authenticity, we use native English speakers in all our recordings. In addition to listening, there are also questions on reading comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, culture and expressions.
Participants receive an overall score and ranking, plus a separate mark for listening.
Teaching tools after the contest
The online contest gives you access to detailed statistics for each of your classes. You will be able to review your students’ performance for every question. Find out the most frequent mistakes, as well as the questions where your students reached high scores.
With a classroom projector or an interactive whiteboard, you can display the contest questions in class. This provides a great opportunity to review teaching points and learn together.
Easy to organise
The contest can be accessed by computers or tablets with an internet connection. Several contest sessions can be arranged throughout the day, if there are not enough computers/tablets for all students to take the test at the same time.
With no test papers to receive or return, organisation is very simple!
