  1. You will be provided with actual past exam papers or similar material, matching your course, to translate. 
  2. One of our experienced Language Partners, a professional linguist, will then proof-read and mark your result, following the Institute of Linguists Educational Trust’s suggested criteria, thereby providing you with invaluable feedback, leading to success in your exams or practical application of your newly learned skills.
