TELIP (Test of English for International Purposes)

The ever-increasing emphasis on the attainment of international standards in English language teaching and testing has led many school officials to re-evaluate their own English language programmes. In order to support schools in this process Language Link has developed TELIP, a comprehensive English language testing and evaluation programme for school grades 9 - 11 and university-level students. We offer TELIP at two levels: TELIP (Elementary - Pre-advanced) and TELIP Plus (Pre-advanced - Proficiency). Designed to measure a student's current level of English language proficiency in the key areas of reading, writing, listening, speaking, grammar and vocabulary, TELIP represents an invaluable in-house academic and administrative tool.

Why select TELIP?

For companies and individuals:

  • It provides school directors and teachers with an accurate, comprehensive and confidential assessment of their students' English language competence

  • It enables school directors and teachers to measure individual and group performance against international standards

  • It isolates individual and group strengths and weaknesses

  • It enables teachers to track individual and group strengths and weaknesses through test; retest at alternative periods

  • Allows teachers to plan remedial and revision work
