An ideal alternative to a traditional four-skills language test!

TIE is an integrated four skills test of language ability available in two forms, A1-B1 and B2-C2.

TIE takes a unique approach to language testing in which Speaking, Reading, Listening and Writing skills are considered to be inter-linked and reliant on each other, where receptive language skills support and underlie productive skills – much as they tend to do in real life!

Each qualification consists of two units: The Speaking exam, within which Listening skills are embedded and the Written exam, within which Reading skills are embedded. The Spoken and Written exams incorporate tasks which candidates can prepare for, choosing topics and texts in which they have a personal interest.
