"Students really enjoyed using SpokenTest because they liked getting my oral and written feedback. And, unlike using audiotapes, they could listen again and again to my oral feedback without rewinding and rewinding the tape. SpokenTest is much more convenient. I think it has some really good features. It is easy to for teachers and students to use, and the company has great technical support."

"Just a quick thank you in regards to my SpokenSkills page. First, having a web presence in this day and age is so important, as everyone is increasingly web savvy, particularly Asians eagerly looking to exploit new technology in order to improve their English language skills. The ability to place your photo and a voice recording on an elegant and professional-looking web page instantly lends one credibility by providing prospective clients/employers the opportunity to decide for themselves at a glance whether or not you are the type of person they’re looking for. It’s what a business card always wished it could be. In just 3 weeks I’ve gotten two clients and three job offers, and I haven’t even started marketing myself!
And on top of everything, the set-up instructions/interface is very easy to use – and free!
You guys are the best!"

"Learning how to properly pronounce basic phrases in another language is a great way to establish relationships and build credibility when conducting business in another country.
It is for this reason that the InXstream audio feature is a great compliment to the wealth of information found in GlobeSmart."

"Even for someone like me--who isn't that
tech-savvy--the software is intuitive and easy to navigate. In addition, since we create the content for the testing, there's a lot of flexibility. We can change our tests as often and as much as our capacity allows. Lastly, when I call in for tech support, I'm usually in the middle of a assessment situation and often in a panic. You and your staff are always calm, patient, and help get us back on track."
