ESLAT for International Students or temporary residents in Canada or the United States

Getting to Know the ESLAT in the U.S. or Canada

The updated version of ESLAT has been migrated to a completely web-based environment. Please check with your universitiy’s admission department about the suitability of a full web-based exam before making an appointment to take our exam. In addition, a significant number of ESLAT examinees take it for career purposes, since the ESLAT has been increasingly adopted as a standard measure of English proficiency on business contexts since the NAFTA (North America Free Trade Agreement) went into effect, therefore causing an increment of the legal labor force exchange among Canada, the United States, and México after NAFTA’s congressional ratification in 1994.

ESLAT for career purposes: Most companies accept the newer web-based version

The success of a non-proctored, online ESLAT version is based on employers’ assumption that a potential employee would still need to show a consistent level of English proficiency upon hiring as shown in the detailed ESLAT English proficiency report. Hence most companies deem unsupervised web-based ESLAT scores acceptable. This way, both employers and prospective employees don’t have to wait weeks before knowing the results as it is the case of other popular English tests, since unlike academic admission process, hiring decisions have a much narrower timeframe than that established in academic programs.
