English Language Skills Certification

Throughout Latin America and the greater modern world, there is a need for certifying the English language proficiency of students, educators, and program coordinators. This is a natural role for San Diego State University, an internationally recognized leader in language acquisition, testing, and certification.

Why Certify?

Success in today's global economy requires a serviceable knowledge of English, the language of commerce and popular culture, and the world's closest approximation to a common tongue.

What's the Process?

SDSU has created a set of online instruments and exams capable of certifying students' English proficiency at any of the six levels established by the Common European Framework of Reference. The exams evaluate the English language skills of students and teachers in such areas as language structure, writing, reading, speaking, and listening comprehension. All aspects of the assessments are conducted online using the specifically designed digital platform created by Excellence in English and Technology.
