This is a self-study course which culminates in a standardized proficiency test.
In preparation for the proficiency test you may:
- Individual Practice
Students use this course website to practice listening, reading, writing and speaking, and learn more about good test-taking strategies.
- Practice Test
Students may take a full practice test online. Students who take the test before the eighth week of the session will receive a feedback report which will give an idea of their level and areas of weakness in writing and speaking. These reports will be available 5 business days after the student takes the test.
- Additional Speaking Practice
Students seeking opportunities to practice speaking with others may take advantage of OLBI’s Conversation Groups. More information is available at https://olbi.uottawa.ca/resources/students under the heading OLBI Mentoring Center.
