Speexx and Cambridge Assessment English Launch Business English Courses

At the opening of Learning Technologies UK 2019 (#lt19uk), Speexx and Cambridge Assessment English announced they will now offer co-branded language-learning solutions to corporate users worldwide.

The six-month courses allow organizations to use the Speexx learning platform to help their employees prepare for the new Linguaskill Business, an online test that quickly and conveniently allows organizations to check the English levels of individuals and groups of job candidates. The online Linguaskill tests are based on extensive research, using cutting-edge artificial intelligence to give employers a fast, accurate indicator of the level of English proficiency of individual test-takers or of an entire group with minimal effort. They cover speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, and provide detailed reports that help organizations optimize their training. The new course also offers test preparation for B1 Business Preliminary, B2 Business Vantage and C1 Business Higher, which are internationally-recognized Cambridge English Qualifications.

The Cambridge prep courses bring together Speexx online and mobile learning resources and the world’s leading language skills assessment brand. They will be available from 14 February with two different levels. Combining Business English training from Speexx with exam preparation programs developed by Cambridge Assessment English, these courses include an hour’s worth of practical material, covering each part of the test in detail, with clear examples and activities.

Speexx already offers participants in its English language courses the opportunity to take Cambridge English’s BULATS test and Business English Certificates, and the new partnership will allow learners to use the Speexx learning platform to help them prepare for and take Cambridge English exams. You can learn more about Speexx solutions and the partnership through a free trial.
