Education First (EF) announced a new pilot program with the professional social network LinkedIn today. LinkedIn users who indicate English as a second language will get the offer to take a free assessment test via email. Upon completion users will receive the option to add a certification to their LinkedIn profile.
The EF Standard English Test (EFSET) was launched in fall 2014 and measures the English proficiency level based on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for Languages. The exam is free of charge.
