More Than 100 Prestigious Organisations and Institutions Have Recognised Linguaskill for Admission, Recruitment, Training and Development in Asia.

SINGAPORE, Feb. 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Linguaskill, an advanced AI-powered English language test for higher education institutions and corporate sectors developed by Cambridge University Press & Assessment, a part of the University of Cambridge, has won the trust and recognition of more than 100 respected and prestigious organisations in Asia since its launch around three years ago. This is mainly because Linguaskill has proven invaluable in enabling institutions and employers across Asia to ensure their candidates and teams have the necessary language skills to compete internationally.

Of these more than 100 organisations, six were ministries and government agencies. These include MEXT Japan (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology), the Ministry of Higher Education and the Department of Private Education in Malaysia, the Thai Ministry of Education, the Vietnamese Ministry of Education, and the Service Institution of Higher Education, regional DKI Jakarta.

Francesca Woodward, Global Managing Director of Cambridge University Press & Assessment, said: “Linguaskill helps employers recruit people with the right language skills – not just a passive knowledge of English, but the ability to communicate effectively. As such, Linguaskill was developed to simplify the process of determining job applicants’ language skills and audit existing staff’s language skills to plan and evaluate training.”
