The TSE examination is designed to evaluate the general oral language proficiency of non-native speakers of English. It is required mainly at graduate level and proves beneficial to students who seek Financial aid in terms of a teaching assistantship. The test is approximately 20 minutes long.

TSE examination tests a person's ability to converse in an academic or professional environment. TSE scores are used by many North American institutions of higher education to select international teaching assistants. The scores also are used for selecting and certifying health professionals, such as physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists, and veterinarians.

The test requires you to demonstrate your ability to communicate in English by responding orally on tape under timed conditions to a variety of printed and recorded information.

On the day of the test, an interviewer on tape will ask you questions. The questions will be printed in the test book, and the time you will have to answer each one is printed in parentheses after the questions. While most of the questions on the test may not appear to be directly related to your academic or professional field, each question is designed to tell the raters how well you communicate in English.

For the period of July 1, 2002 through June 30, 2003, the TSE test fee is US$125 for all persons.
