SALAS uses four different language assessments. One of them will be right for you! You might need the literacy assessment (CLBLA), the more in‑depth assessment (CLBA), the shorter Placement Test (CLBPT) or the assessment for trained professionals (ELTPA).
All four assessments are conducted at your convenience in our SALAS office in downtown Lethbridge or at the Brooks Campus of Medicine Hat College. Our assessments in Brooks are the second Tuesday (4-8 p.m.) and second Wednesday (9-1) of each month. SALAS also assesses monthly at the J. T. Foster School in Nanton on the last Saturday of the month from 10-2 p.m. Just call 403 328 4811 for an appointment time.
However, these assessments can also be given in your community; please call to make arrangements. Each client receives a Language Portfolio including the results of the assessment and referral information.
Most clients use the language assessment information to begin English language classes, to seek career/vocational counselling, or to start employment after a shorter English course. The assessors will discuss your options with you.
