Abstract

The article analyzes the pragmatic components of the communicative level of Russian and English language proficiency tests. The research material is based on the texts of the TORFL and Cambridge ESOL test systems, adopted by the CEFR. It is revealed that the texts of the TORFL test system are more intent to checking lexical and grammatical competence. In the texts of the Cambridge Exams communication skills are primarily assessed. It is proved that the structure of information query and question-answer consistency in the texts of TORFL tests are pseudo-dialogical nature in contrast to the Cambridge Exams tests.
