About TIE

The Test of Interactive English (TIE)  is recognised by the National
Qualifications Authority of Ireland (NQAI), a statutory body of the
Department of Education and Skills.


Advisory Council for English Language Schools (ACELS)

TIE is an international EFL exam developed in Ireland by a group of Irish English language professionals under the aegis of the Advisory Council for English Language Schools (ACELS) a government agency responsible for quality assurance in English language teaching. TIE is suitable for school students and our students will sit this test (that includes both, oral and written papers) as part of the English training programme.


TIE Test Format

The test assesses learner’ communicative and interactive skills. It has two parts, an Oral Test (30 minutes) based on the student’s project work, and a Written Test (60 minutes).  The TIE Scale of Assessment accords with the Council of Europe’s Common Framework Scale of Language Proficiency.

TIE is recognised by the Irish Department of Education and Skills. For more information, please visit:
