    Default FLR(M) and A1 English test

    My wife has been here almost 4 years now, and we will be applying for FLR(M) for the second time as family and business commitments have made it difficult to travel to college 3 times a week to do the ESOL. Am I right in thinking that this time she will need to do the A1 standard English test before applying for FLR(M)? Assuming this is the case, does anyone know of a test centre in the North Wales/Chester area? The local college does the ESOL courses but were unaware of the A1 test's existence. Rich.

    There is always the book and the Life in the UK Test as an alternative to ESOL.

    Because she would, as I understand, need to have either passed LITUK test or completed minimum of 1 year ESOL course.

    The LITUK test cannot be taken orally as far as I know and therefore requires a standard of understanding written English that my wife doesn't have at present.

    The LITUK test is not that fearsome, at least not if you spend quite a bit of time learning and practicing. Its multiple choice. So as long as she can read the questions its doable. Its only about £25. Just a suggestion. Also you can retake it many times.

    We have looked at sample LITUK tests on the internet, she can read English considerably better than I can read Thai but definately not up to standard of this test.
