Language Assessments

Before you are placed in an English class, you will have your English level assessed. Assessments are based on the Canadian Language Benchmarks. The test measures your skill in listening, speaking, reading and writing in English. This assessment will allow you to be referred to an appropriate English class in a language training program in Brandon.

Once you are in an English class, your progress will be assessed by your teacher who will write a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) report for you at the end of the instructional year.
