The Hellenic American Union is pleased to announce that the ABLE B2 certificate has been recognized by the Greek state (Supreme Council for Civil Personnel Selection) as a B2 level certification of English language competence.

 

The ABLE B2 exams (Assessment Board for Language Examinations: Level B2) are the latest addition to the family of exams administered by the Hellenic American Union. Developed and scored by the Hellenic American University, USA, the ABLE B2 is designed for candidates who wish to obtain certification of their competency in English as a second or other language at an intermediate level (CEFR B2 level).

 

The ABLE B2 is a standardized examination designed for candidates who wish to obtain certification of their competency in English as a second or other language at an intermediate level. ABLE B2 is aimed at the B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CERF).

 

The ABLE B2 examination is developed and scored by the Hellenic American University, a non-profit institution of higher education chartered in the state of New Hampshire, USA, in accordance with best practices in language assessment.

 

All parts of the examination are written following specific guidelines and test specification. Items are pretested to ensure the validity and reliability of the examination. Care is taken that the tests are fair and accessible to all candidates.

 

The ABLE B2 examination tests communicative competence in all four language skills –reading, writing, listening, and speaking – and includes tasks which test grammatical resources. As vocabulary is tested through all tasks in all sections, there is no separate vocabulary section.

 

The ABLE B2 is officially recognized in Greece by the state (Supreme Council for Civil Personnel Selection) as a B2 level certification of English language competence. The ABLE B2 certificate can also be used for obtaining employment in the private sector and for further studies that require language competence certification of this level.
