What is the VERSANT® Speaking Test?

versant logo
VERSANT is a test developed by Pearson to measure practical English skills that can be used in business.
It takes about 20 minutes to measure your speaking ability from 4 points of view: "pronunciation", "fluency", "vocabulary" and "sentence structure". It gives a score for each skill (pronunciation, fluency, vocabulary, sentence structure), so it is easy to identify weak points.
VERSANT scores are displayed as an overall score and subscores. All are scored on a scale of 20 to 80 and are also scored on the Pearson-developed Global Scale of English (GSE), a fully CEFR-compliant English language proficiency index.
It is a highly reliable test that is used by major global companies and government agencies around the world, so it is possible to prove your objective English skills right away.
