Language Proficiency Assessment

Language Proficiency Assessment (LPA)

Language Proficiency Assessment (LPA)A language proficiency assessment (LPA) is a reference measurement that provides definitive feedback regarding a person’s level of achievement language proficiency in a second language.

Wouldn't it be a great idea to test the language skills of your potential or current “bilingual-staff” before determining if you need to pay them an extra language differential, or just to be sure they can represent the business accurately while using a second language?
