About the Oral Test
The test is administered remotely over the internet using the Microsoft Teams (MS Teams) video conferencing platform and lasts 20 to 40 minutes including pre-test instructions. The test will be administered with the camera on, which means that you and the assessor will use the video function in MS Teams throughout the test, from confirming your identity to the end of the test.
You do not need to be in a government office to take this test. You should, however, arrange to be alone in a quiet environment where you will not be disturbed for the duration of the test.
The Oral Language Assessment assesses your ability to communicate orally in French. A language assessor certified by the Public Service Commission administers this test, which includes questions about work-related situations. If you are not currently employed, you may be asked about studies or volunteer activities. The oral test is administered online or face-to-face and lasts 20 to 40 minutes.
