One of worldwide English test providers is University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations. All the tests offered are surely reliable and valid due to their thoroughly research and investigation framework. However, most people are still confused of what to take for their own personal needs since the tests offered by ESOL Examinations are really varied. Therefore, this study was trying to descriptively describe some ESOL’s tests by investigating the tests one by one. The problems were (1) what tests are available to describe English language ability from ESOL Examination?, (2) what are the available tests for?, (3) what does the test result reflect?.
