- The assessment covers the four language skills—reading, writing, listening and conversation. During a typical assessment we would:
- show you a picture and ask you to describe it;
- ask you to listen to a recording of a 30-second conversation and ask you questions about it;
- have you read a very short story about a newcomer to Canada and ask you three questions about the story;
- Ask you to compare your own story as a newcomer to the story you read (to evaluate your writing ability.
- We do not have child-minding services for assessment clients. Please make arrangements as the assessment can take up to 1.5 hours or more.
