What is LAAS
Since its establishment in 1981, the Federation is administering Palso proficiency tests successfully in four languages.
LAAS (Language Attainment Assessment System) is a system that assesses proficiency in a foreign language.
Laas tests are recognized by the International Certificate Conference (I.C.C.), since they meet international standards.
Laas-Palso exams are conducted in a perfect and unimpeachable way due to our long experience which ensures excellence.
The goal of the Lass-Palso exams is to assess students’ knowledge of foreign languages in an objective and fair manner, based on modern scientific criteria. We also aim to reward positive and progressive approach towards learning a foreign language, to encourage students and to provide Language Schools with data regarding the performance of their students.
