Free English Test – Thailand

Submitted by on Wednesday, 17 August 2011No Comment

If you are looking for a free English language test in Thailand, then you may be interested in the document attached below.

However, for a little bit more we believe we have the most reliable way to test a candidate’s English language skills.

The world’s best English language test comes to Thailand

With over 10 years of development, the Versant English language test is now available through Talent Technologies in Thailand.

Most people haven’t heard of Versant, but it is a must-have tool for any company where English language skills are a key requirement of doing business. Let me explain.

Versant is available 24/7

Versant is unique in that it has been developed using speech recognition technology and is thus available 24/7.

This means that you can test a candidate’s or colleague’s English language skills and within 15 minutes, have a report based on their capability. But it gets better..l

Listening / Speaking is where it’s at!

Ask most professionals which English language skills are most important to them to operate effectively in business in Thailand, and they will tell you ‘listening and speaking’.

But how do you test these critical skills?

Think about it. Normally a Thai is tested either by a fellow Thai who, let’s face it, is probably not that proficient in English, or by an expat manager, who may be costly to use as an interviewer and may not have the technique, nor the training, to know how to assess a candidate’s skills and rate him or her on those.

So companies all so often end up making mis-hires in Thailand as far as English language skills go. And the alternative, like the written test attached below, has zero relevance to what companies really need. Namely professionals who can:

  • pick up a phone and make arrangements for a business trip
  • update on a project
  • teleconference with colleagues in Singapore, Hong Kong or America
  • make a presentation
  • problem-solve in a meeting
  • greet a customer and find out what he or she wants

All of the above require listening and speaking skills. But the harsh reality is that companies have no structured, reliable process to test that. And that is precisely what Versant offers.

Get your free test below, or your free Versant listening/speaking test here…

So if you want a test that will make a difference where it matters in your company, then why not have a look at Versant?

We’re currently offering one free test per company on a limited period basis. To qualify, simply email us using the contact form here with ‘Versant’ in the message box.

So go ahead and give Versant a try!
