Students have been given a chance to assess their English skills in a 90-minute test based on business situations. Hong Kong will on Saturday become the first place in Asia where Business Language Testing, developed by the University of Cambridge, is available. Results of the British Council-run test could demonstrate business English skills to prospective employers. The test is usually aimed at evaluating the ability of staff and job applicants, said Nic Humphries of the council's English Language Centre. 'The language auditing will help employers to screen candidates as they show their language ability in relation to using English at work.' The tests have three sections - listening, reading and grammar/vocabulary.
