Registration Information 

English Level Placement Exam:

All first-time MLS English language students must take an English level

placement exam before registering for an English course. The exam is free

and lasts 30 to 60 minutes, depending on student abilities. This exam can be

taken on site, at MLS, or online. This exam helps MLS staff find the most

helpful courses for you.

You may schedule the exam by e-mail:,

or telephone: 617.500.3215.

This exam evaluates your understanding and use of grammar and vocabulary,

as well as your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.  

Registration Deadlines:
The last day to register for courses is one day before course start dates,

but don't wait, because courses fill up quickly!

​Registration Process:

Students register by completing a simple form at the MLS office,

or online. Click here to register online. (Remember, you must 

take the level placement exam first, before you register, if you

are a new student.)

Students may pay for their courses in cash, by check, by money order or

by Venmo after completing the registration form, before the start of their

courses. We do not currently accept debit or credit card payments as this

is prohibitively expensive.
