Bilingual Assessment

Language Proficiency–Test Your Lexicon

Eastern AHEC provides a Language Proficiency Assessment (LPA) which can determine if a present or potential staff member, or a student can speak two languages proficiently enough to be qualified bilinguals. Passing this assessment with an 80% or better–on all three levels–can speak one-on-one with others who speak the same language. This is also the pre-testing process our potential interpreter students must pass in order to take the course. Please note that passing this does not allow an individual to be an interpreter. That requires a 40+ hour training.

To learn more about our LPA and how to test your lexicon, or to become eligible to take the LPA, please contact us at info@easternctahec.org.
