The form and content of the test all ISLPR Tests

Speaking, Listening and Reading skills are tested in a one-to-one interview that takes about 60 minutes. The interview is audio-recorded. For the Writing test, the tester will give you task sheets and explain the tasks to you; then you will have 60 minutes to write.

Academic Test:University

The academic test is for candidates wishing to take a test in order to gain entry into an academic program (e.g. university or other educational institutions).

Three things determine the content of the test: everyday life in Australia, everyday life in the university or other educational institution, and your academic discipline.

Professional Registration Test: teacher

We have developed an approach to testing that focuses on the English language used by teachers in their roles as practitioners and professionals in Australian society. The focus is especially on your practical ability in using English. 

Three things determine the content of the test: everyday life in Australia, everyday life in an Australian school, and your field in education.

Vocational Test:Working Professionals

The vocational test is designed for candidates wishing to take a test for vocational purposes other than teaching. The focus is especially on your practical ability in using English.

Three things determine the content of the test: everyday life in Australia, life in your vocational workplace, and your vocational field.  

Topics: preparation, Teachers, University students, Teacher registration, Australia, English as a second language, individual tests, customised testing, Personalised testing, Language test, ISLPR, Learn english, English 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. 

Don't take our word for it though, read some of our testimonials:

“Dear Dr. David, 
I will continue to take tutorials and tests even if I get good results next week… because I confess I get good knowledge by your tutorials… Thank you so much for your efforts to help me…
