Language Screening

Our language assessment tool helps to determine whether the candidate has enough language fluency in English and one target language. This would then qualify them to attend professional interpreter training and become a trained medical interpreter.

Linguistic abilities, knowledge of medical terminology, oral and written skills in English and the target language are assessed. This assessment includes an oral and an optional written component in both languages.

  • Ability to carry a conversation comfortably in English and in target language
  • Ability to interpret specific terms from in English <=> Target Language
  • Evaluation of knowledge and understanding of medical terms and patient-centered medical language
  • Specialized topics, when the assessment is specialized
