The telephone conversation is recorded for quality control purposes and is confidential.

The Reading Language Proficiency Evaluation is an assessment of proficiency in reading comprehension in English or in French.
The Writing Language Proficiency Evaluation is an assessment of proficiency in writing in English or in French.
Reading and Writing evaluations are done online and are available anytime.
