IML Optional Assessment

Courses available for assessment

IML course assessment, if offered, is a service additional to your language course, available free of charge.

IML offers optional assessment for students enrolled in any 42 hour course in order to attain acknowledgement of their language skills and abilities. There is no assessment for Survival, Short Course for Beginners, Conversation or "A" courses.

Examinations are held in a separate session after the last class on the set exam date.

Assessment is based on criteria and standards as set out in the Assessment Criteria Matrix. Listening and Speaking skills are assessed throughout the course, while Reading and Writing skills are assessed in a one-hour exam paper. A Statement of Proficiency is then issued.

For students who have completed a language course and cannot, or do not wish to, participate in formal assessment, a Statement of Attendance is available upon request for students who have attended at least 75% of the classes.


An IML Statement of Attendance is available upon request.

IML does not offer official accreditation of second language skills. If you are interested in having your second language skills accredited, please see Language Proficiency Testing page.
