What a week it’s been for ABA English! Last week the online English academy with more than 8 million students signed a deal with Cambridge University to become an official examiner of the Business Language Testing Service (BULATS)
The BULATS exam is done online and is designed to test workplace English as well as training professionals in their linguistic ability. The BULATS exam uses an official evaluation system which certifies students to the level of English that they have reached. Generally, most businesses want their staff to have gained at least a B2 level of English
The BULATS exam tests the four linguistic skills: reading , speaking, writing and listening as well as including practical exercises and tasks which are based on real work situations. It’s because of that that the exam fits in so well with ABA English’s teaching methodology which covers 6 levels from A1-C1. ABA’s own natural method was designed to offer intuitive and practical learning online or from your mobile.
ABA’s teaching is based on short, high-quality videos which focus on immersing the student in daily real life British and American situations, focusing more on the content rather than the form. By doing this, the language follows the natural progression: first you understand, then you speak and then later you learn to write and understand grammar.
Both Cambridge University and ABA English were very happy to have signed the deal with Cambridge’s own Robin Gravina saying:
“We’re delighted to incorporate ABA English into our network of centres offering the BULATS”
