Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the John Wells Studio for the first national test of Non-English Language for English Speakers.

This thoughtfully designed test measures contestants’ foreign language proficiency and the ability to quickly apply new vocabularies to understanding situations where English is not used as the language of communication.

Out of courtesy to your host and fellow contestants, and out of basic common sense of a TEST, we ask that you turn off your cell phones and other digital communication devices.

This test takes 30 minutes to finish.

Are you ready?
