ISLPR Online Test - Formal Trials - Round 2

Posted by ISLPR Language Services on September 28, 2020 at 5:10 PM

We are now opening up our trials to candidates who have never done the ISLPR test before and are located in South East Queensland or Sydney. Please note, priority will be given to candidates who can attend our office in person.


In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, ISLPR Language Services has been working on creating an online version of the ISLPR test for the past few months. We are currently trialing the software and are reaching out to Queensland and Sydney based candidates who have not done the ISLPR test before to ask whether you would be interested in participating in our formal trials of the online test.

At ILS, language testing is personal.

Language is an interactive and social skill. Therefore, we believe English should be taught and tested similarly.

ISLPR Language Services (ILS) developed the ISLPR® Test because we saw the need for a test that examined your real-life language. The ISLPR® Test is an interactive and personalised test. As the ISLPR test is personalised for each candidate, there are no tricks to pass the test. 

Why we're different:

  • We test your speaking, listening and reading skills in a one-to-one interview.
  • The content of your test is customised to match your area of expertise.
  • The ISLPR is the shortest English test, therefore minimising the chance of fatigue.
  • We offer individual English tutorials with accredited tutors.
  • We offer a feedback service so you can find out why you got that rating in your test.
