Courses and Levels

To make sure that you get the most out of your courses, it’s important that you take courses appropriate for your current English level.

Before you start at Sasin Business English, we ask that you take the Sasin Business English Placement Test. Placement tests are administered at Sasin before each teaching session. You can find the dates of the next Sasin Business English Placement Test in Key Dates, and you can book your test online here.

Alternatively, you may submit other English proficiency tests (e.g. TOEIC, TOEFL, IELTS, CU-TEP or BULATS scores) provided they have been taken within two years of our registration deadline.

When you’ve got your test score, you can check what Sasin (Ellis) level it represents in the table below. Then you can see which Sasin Business English courses are best for you.
