We conduct level assessment tests at the Delhi centre from Monday - Saturday from 0930 - 1630 hours. 

Step 1: Book your level test appointment

To book your level test appointment at our New Delhi centre, visit:

Once you have done your booking, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. A reminder will also be sent to you 24 hours before your test date.

Step 2: Your level test

On the day of your appointment, allow up to 90-120 minutes for the level test. Please ensure you arrive at least 30 min prior to your appointment time to complete registration by paying INR 600/-. Your test will consist of a pre-test for 10 minutes followed by a written test for 45 minutes and will end with a speaking test with one of our course counsellors who will also guide you with the best course option(s) suited to your language level and needs based on your test results.

*Candidates below 18 years are required to be accompanied by an adult and produce a valid age proof identification document with them on the day of level test.

Step 3: Course registration

We offer various course timings to suit every need. We advise you to register as soon as you can to confirm your place on the course since early applicants will receive priority.


As with other organisations and institutions, we are closed on some holidays. All classes which fall on a public holiday will be made up to ensure that the syllabus is still covered.
