City & Guilds International English Examinations

City & Guilds International ESOL and Spoken ESOL (SESOL) are communicative English tests focusing on all four language skills (Writing, Reading, Listening and Speaking). They are internationally recognized for both academic progression and employment.

International ESOL

International ESOL is one of the most popular examinations sought after by candidates, usually referred to as the ‘written exam’, however it is made up of Reading, Writing and Listening (and not only writing).
It is great fun for learners to actually take the exam, as they are confronted with interesting language tasks from the everyday, like writing letters to friends, sharing their thoughts, listening to an interesting story or reading a piece of news.

International Spoken ESOL

International SESOL is yet another popular exam from among the International English Language suite of qualifications of City & Guilds. It is popularly referred to as the ‘spoken exam’ and tests only speaking skills.
