Open English Launches Free Online English Proficiency Test to Advance English-Learning in the United States

Miami, Florida Open English, described in promotional literature as “the leading English-learning platform in Latin America and the U.S. Hispanic market,” recently launched a free online English proficiency test to aid interested participants in achieving their English-learning goals. The test, which only takes 15 minutes to complete, provides instant results and includes questions and interactive activities that determine the comprehension skills and English proficiency of each participant.

With around 42 million non-English household speakers in the U.S., a number that’s steadily risen for more than three decades, this test facilitates learning by allowing for specialized instruction alongside peers who share similar proficiency levels. It’s also an important entry point to establishing realistic learning objectives and measuring a participant’s progress.

“Part of what makes Open English such a successful English-learning platform is our emphasis on students beginning their studies at the right level, with the right native-speaking teachers and the right study plan,” explained Andrés Moreno, founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of Open English.

“Our new English proficiency test will make this process even easier, giving students the confidence they need to succeed.”

Open English has in recent months expanded its governing board. It now includes Brian “Skip” Schipper, whose addition to the directors was covered here recently.

U.S. Census data indicates 21.5 percent of Americans speak a language other than English at home. The percentage speaking English “less than very well” is 8.2 percent. The percentage of those speaking Spanish at home is 13.2 percent. This data is adapted by CapitolBeatOK from U.S. Census Bureau data, five-year estimates.

While the U.S. doesn’t have an official language, English is the most commonly used. Meaning those who lack proficiency may face social, economic or educational roadblocks. Not only do these statistics make Open English’s proficiency test a critical first step in English learning, it emphasizes the importance of the company’s customized learning solutions for non-English speakers.
