1. What is the MELAB?
The Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (MELAB) evaluates advanced-level English language competence of adult nonnative speakers of English such as:
• Students applying to United States, Canadian, British, and other educational institutions where the language of instruction is English.
• Professionals who need English for work or training purposes.
• Anyone interested in obtaining a general assessment of their English language proficiency for educational or employment opportunities.
The MELAB is a secure test battery and is administered only by the ELI-UM and ELI-UM authorized official examiners in the United States and Canada. The MELAB consists of three parts: a composition, a listening test, and a written test containing grammar, cloze, vocabulary, and reading comprehension problems. An optional speaking test is also available. Many educational institutions in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and other countries accept the MELAB as an alternative to the TOEFL.
The MELAB is designed to measure your proficiency in the four basic language skill areas: writing, listening, reading, and speaking. The entire MELAB lasts 2½ to 3½ hours (including check-in at the examination site) and consists of:
• Part 1: A written composition
• Part 2: A listening comprehension test
• Part 3: A multiple choice test containing grammar, cloze reading,
