About Euroexam

Euroexam is based on the key idea that for most students the ability to communicate is more important than a theoretical knowledge of language. Following this approach, Euroexam Centre provides standardised exams that test students’ success in real communication. Students who succeed in our exams prove that they can also succeed using their English in real-life situations all over Europe and in several countries beyond.

The Euroexams are a suite of communicative examinations for learners of English and German, focusing on all four language skills (writing, reading, listening and speaking), and are internationally recognised as Common European Framework aligned exams. They meet the real-world needs of language learners in a multilingual environment and test the learners’ ability to use language in a real-life environment. The Euroexams are available at A1, A2, B1, B2 and C1 levels.

Transparent and secure exam procedures meeting international standards

A reliable and fair exam is more than just good tests written by international experts with a thorough background in teaching. The procedures governing Euroexams are fully transparent. Also security has been a priority from the beginning. All written exam scripts are returned for marking by independent examiners in the UK and in Euroexam’s regional centres across the EU. Speaking tests are recorded and transferred electronically for marking by our accredited oral examiners in the UK and Europe. Our team of native English and German speaking interlocutors and invigilators who supervise the examinations play no role in the marking or assessment process. In these ways Euroexams has proven itself to be fair, impartial and secure.

A wide range of exam preparation and practice resources

Euroexams are written with learners and their teacher in mind. Success in the exam needs effective teaching. Well prepared teachers need a range of course and practice books, with online available materials easily accessible.

Euroexam Centre has published course and practice books since 2002. Its EUROCITY range of coursebooks meet teachers' expectations and are updated regularly. EUROCITY coursebooks are now available for the B1, B2 and C1 level Euroexams in English and B2 level for German. Past examination papers are also in demand and our Practice Test Books for B1, B2 and C1 levels offer plenty of practice opportunities. Practice materials for all levels including A1 and A2 are available on-line and in electronic form from our local testing centre partners.

International awards and recognition

Euroexam Centre and its experts have been partners in long-term international educational research programmes.

Euroexams was selected to join a Council of Europe-led project to develop recommended procedures for examination centres across Europe. The result of this work became known as the ‘Council of Europe Manual,’ which since 2004 has been widely used by examination centres and universities to link their own tests to the Framework. In 2015 the Euroexam Centre joined other important research programmes led by the Council of Europe.

Euroexams was the choice of the British Chamber of Commerce in Spain when the Chamber was looking for a long-term partner to provide Business English examinations for its professional clients.

In 2001 the Euroexam Centre was awarded the prestigious European Language Label for its “innovative approach in applying the Common European Framework in test development". Ten years later in 2011 the Euroexam Centre received the European Language Label for the second time, awarded for its newly developed online examination preparation courses.
