Who we are

ALTE is an association of language test providers who work together to promote the fair and accurate assessment of linguistic ability across Europe and beyond. ALTE was founded in 1989 by the University of Cambridge (UK) and the Universidad de Salamanca (Spain), and today counts with 33 Full Members, 100 Associate Members and over 500 Individual Affiliates. We are a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, based in England, registered Charity number 1184799.

ALTE is a non-for-profit, International Non-Governmental Organisation (INGO), and gained Participatory Status with the Council of Europe in 2003. ALTE's ground-breaking work to set common levels of language proficiency across different languages contributed significantly to the later development of the Council of Europe's Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR)

ALTE Members and Associate Members meet three times per year in different locations around Europe, where they discuss language testing issues and help disseminate best practices in language assessment. Click here to learn more about our events and projects.
