About the test

The English Comprehension test evaluates verbal ability in English, such as understanding concepts presented through words and expressing ideas in words.

The key areas assessed in the test include typical work tasks, such as:

  • Grasping business level vocabulary, including nouns, verbs, and adjectives.
  • Understanding subtle nuances that affect meanings in workplace situations.
  • Recognizing how verbal tenses and syntax organize and sequence events.

Almost all today's office-based jobs that use English require the ability to comprehend and deliver clear and accurate communications in the English language for business success.

Decorative quote

Simple, straight-forward technical testing

TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
