Assess your English and French language skills online for free.
The CLB-OSA is an online self-assessment tool for those who are interested in assessing their English as a Second Language (ESL). These free, low-stakes, task-based assessments are based on the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB). The tools assess English and French proficiency on a scale from Benchmark 1 to 8 in two skill areas: Reading and Listening.
Le NCLC-AEL est un outil d’autoévaluation en ligne destiné aux personnes qui veulent évaluer leur français langue seconde (FLS). Les tests sont fondés sur les Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens (NCLC). Ils évaluent votre niveau de compétence linguistique en compréhension de l’écrit et de l’oral.
The results from this self-assessment cannot be used for employment, immigration, academic admission, citizenship application, or placement into most language training programs. The self-assessments are solely to aid in making informed decisions about immigration, language learning and career pathways.
