 Message: ACTFL seeks native speakers of the following languages:

  • Mandingo-Malinke
  • Pashto-Peshawari
  • Susu
  • Macedonian

A selected candidate will be asked to assist in administering a telephonic test of speaking proficiency. This paid opportunity is an excellent chance to use your native language, have a conversation with someone learning the language, gain exposure to speaking proficiency testing, and work one-on-one with an experienced language tester trainer.

Scope of work:
- Several hours of telephone time preparing with a language tester trainer. You will be provided with information on the test content and how to conduct it. The test is called the Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI), a nationally recognized test of speaking proficiency.
- Estimated 45 minutes conducting the test of speaking proficiency in one of the languages listed above. The test will be a three-way phone call between yourself, the test taker, and the language tester trainer also on the line for guidance.

To apply or learn more: please email jruane@actfl.org (attn: Julia Ruane) and attach a current copy of your resume. In the body of the email, please include a brief summary of your language background and why you are interested in this project.

Please feel welcome to share this opportunity with qualified native speakers who may also be interested.
