Being the business language of the world, English is written and spoken by over 2 billion people worldwide. It's prominence and presence all over the world is the reason why the current market for English proficiency assessment stands at USD 1922.5 Million. F

urther, as the need for English proficiency increases due to multiple factors like accelerating internet usage and rising adoption of 'the business language', this market is set to reach USD 6166 million in a decade. In light of these growing needs, an assessment tool is going to be imperative to objectively measure the skills.

iMocha's AI-EnglishPro helps organizations to analyse a candidate's communication skills on quantitative and qualitative parameters such as Vocabulary, Oral fluency, Grammar, and Readability and offers CEFR validation for these parameters.

The assessments also help create benchmarks for developing training plans as per the existing skill levels. Powered by Microsoft Azure's AI and NLP models, iMocha AI-EnglishPro offers unmatched accuracy in evaluating Business English communication skills.
