With English language testing suspended in China since February, hundreds of thousands of students are currently trying to secure English language qualifications that will allow them to attend universities abroad.
How do universities gauge if an international student has the right aptitude and attitude to flourish during their studies? Language proficiency tests are the starting point, and the marketplace is becoming busier and more sophisticated, as Viggo Stacey reports.
Social language learning platform, WeSpeke, has begun offering lessons for users planning to take the TOEFL iBT test. The test preparation lessons focusses on reading skills, with speaking, writing and listening expected to roll out by the end of the year.
I think the market will not be like the old times, with everyone taking that much time on English study. But the study abroad trend is not changed, it is still there and more people will choose to study abroad.
