Accuracy and appropriateness are critical, so the use correct words is measured. The scoring also focuses on the range of words used in the test-taker’s vocabulary, their phrasing, and entire sentences. This portion of the test measures the ability for the individual to understand, recall, and communicate ideas using common words from everyday language.


Being able to articulating vowels and consonants in a way similar to native-speaking people is critical. That’s why Versant’s scoring zeros in on using the correct pronunciation, as well as which words and phrases are stressed in sentences.

Sentence Mastery

The tests measure the ability for the test-taker to use basic, and complex, grammatical structures and sentences. The correct use of words, phrases, and sentences are measured within the scoring system. Tests evaluate that proper use of syntax and sentences are accurately composed into meaningful dialogue.


Having steady, smooth tone certainly makes for a more natural sounding speech, which is why Versant’s scoring focuses on the flow and tempo of the speech. The algorithm measures pauses, rhythm, the rate of speaking, and phrasing, and how compares to a native French-speaking person.
