ESOL Skills for Life Examinations

Cambridge ESOL Skills for Life certificates test the English of adults who live, work or study in England, Wales or Northern Ireland. As part of the UK government’s plans to improve levels of English, they are fully based on the Adult ESOL Core Curriculum and reflect the use of English in everyday life.

Cambridge Skills for Life certificates are available at five levels on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), Entry 1, Entry 2, Entry 3, Level 1 and Level 2.

There are three modes at each leave, Reading, Writing and Speaking and combined Speaking and Listening. You decide if you want to take one or more of these tests.
