This set of sample tests is intended to assist those preparing for various levels of the international ECL examination system. By taking the sample tests, would-be ECL examinees can measure their language proficiency before attempting the “live” exam.
This set of sample tests offers two tests for each level, following the sequence and format of the live exams. ECL exams measure reading comprehension, writing, and listening comprehension, with two tasks each in the written part. In the course of the oral part, candidates – examined in pairs – are to face two assessed tasks: first they are to discuss a given topic, which is followed by the candidates’ independent discussion of pictures. In this publication each set offers one sample “picture montage” along with possible supporting questions. The texts for listening comprehension tests and the colored version of the picture montages can be found on the CD enclosed. The answer keys, which can be found at the back of the tests, are meant to provide assistance in checking one’s own answers.
