Leading players in language training and assessment bring co-branded offerings to organizations in Switzerland.

MUNICH/WINTERTHUR (May 20, 2019) – Speexx and Cambridge Assessment English, at Learning Technologies UK 2019 earlier this year, announced plans to offer co-branded language learning solutions to corporate users worldwide.

Today, Speexx is excited to share that we’ve also partnered up with Swiss Exams, experts in exam management, to bring the Speexx and Cambridge Assessment English joint offerings to organizations in Switzerland. Swiss Exams is the very first partner from the Cambridge partner network with whom Speexx will be rolling out the co-branded language learning solutions.

More information on the Cambridge English Prep Courses and on the partnership between Speexx and Swiss Exams will be shared at the upcoming Cambridge English Spring Seminar on 18 May 2019 in Horgen ZH.

“With more than 10 years of experience teaching and testing language skills, we are well aware of the need for flexible and mobile language assessments in the corporate world. However, until now, there have been no intelligent online solutions for the digital workplace to help corporate users around the world to get ready for those tests,” said Armin Hopp, founder and President at Speexx. “This is why we are extremely proud to launch the Speexx preparation app series with Cambridge English, the biggest and best name in language assessment. Together, we’ve created the first high-quality online English test preparation resource for Cambridge tests on the corporate digital learning market.”

Swiss Exams has 27 years of experience specializing in professional exam management. Founded in 1989, Swiss Exams has provided exams for over 100,000 candidates over the years. Now, thanks to these new joint offerings from Speexx and CAE, Swiss Exams will be able to use the Speexx learning platform to help its employees prepare for the new Linguaskill Business test, an online test that quickly and conveniently lets organizations check the English levels of individuals and groups of candidates. This test is based on extensive research and artificial intelligence and covers speaking, listening, reading and writing skills.

The new course from Speexx and CAE also offers test preparation for B1 Business Preliminary, B2 Business Vantage and C1 Business Higher, all internationally-recognized Cambridge English Qualifications.
