Woman Telephonist

Phonetest was first offered in 2008 by Kingsway English Centre, Worcester UK to provide an English language assessment tailored to the needs of international industry. The test contains several components to enable a check of all four skill areas and an in-depth report for you as an employer. It is particularly suited to situations where a high level of verbal communication is required.

In 2020 Kingsway English Centre was rebranded to Worcester Education to reflect the broader service range of the company, and at the same time the original iconic spelling "Fonetest" was changed to "Phonetest".
