The National Certificates of Language Proficiency are language proficiency tests. They assess language skills in practical situations where you may generally need to speak, listen, write or read in a foreign language – at home or abroad.

The National Certificates of Language Proficiency assess four skill components: speaking, listening comprehension, writing and reading comprehension.

You can use the certificate:

  • to demonstrate language proficiency in a job application
  • to demonstrate language proficiency required for work assignments
  • as part of your studies
  • to demonstrate language proficiency required for acquisition of Finnish citizenship.
