Placement Test Procedure
We are committed to providing you with the best learning experience, tailored to your individual language proficiency. Our placement test ensures that you start your summer journey at exactly the right level of English, French and German allowing you to make the most out of your time with us.
- Online Placement Test: Prior to arrival, students will be required to complete an online placement test. This test will gauge students’ current language skills and knowledge, helping us understand their strengths and areas for improvement. The online test is designed to be convenient and flexible, allowing students to complete it at a time that suits them best. It ensures students are positioned in a class that matches their abilities. If students can’t complete the test beforehand, they will join a mixed-level testing group on their first day, with the opportunity to take the test during their initial lesson.
- Observation of Speaking Skills: Upon arrival and commencement of lessons, our dedicated teachers will conduct comprehensive observations during the students’ first day of classes. Specifically focusing on speaking skills, these observations will provide valuable insights into students’ real-time language abilities and interaction in a classroom setting.
- Customized Class Placement: The speaking component score obtained from the classroom observations will be combined with the results of the online placement test. This comprehensive approach ensures a holistic evaluation of students’ language skills. Based on this combined assessment, students will be placed in a suitable English language level that aligns perfectly with their proficiency.
- Learning Aligned with Proficiency: At our Summer School, class allocation is determined by students’ language level, not by age, education, nationality, or preferences. We prioritize creating international student groups whenever possible, fostering cross-cultural connections and enhancing the learning experience.
At IP International Projects, we understand that effective learning begins with being in the right environment. Our placement test procedure is designed to create precisely that environment for you. By tailoring your learning path to your unique abilities, we aim to empower you to reach new heights in your language journey.
