Testing Philosophy

The best way for students to learn both language and culture is through immersion and interaction with each other and with primary users of the language. The more students are involved and invested in the communication process, the more they remember. By developing the students’ communication competence, language becomes more real and applicable to their lives.

Testing students solely in the target language will not only develop both receptive and expressive skills, but will provide teachers with a comprehensive awareness of their students’ achievements. Students will also benefit, as they are tested using authentic and real world situations that they are able to apply to daily conversations.
