Project Description

TELSa examinations measure the candidate’s proficiency on English language. The examinations have been designed with an international user in mind.

The tests are a balanced integration of both Academic English and General English since we have tried to incorporate skills such as summary writing, note-taking, and other strategies which are more commonly tested in the latter type of tests. This, we feel, provides our candidates with the opportunity for more comprehensive preparation, and they should, therefore, be better able to cope with the language and skills necessary in the real world. The TELSa examinations, therefore, cater for a wider range of candidates, ranging from the High school student looking to apply for admission into a University to the adult who is keen on improving his or her position at work.
