The NAATI CCL Test determines the ability of a candidate to translate & convey what is
spoken by the speakers in a conversation – English & Language Other Than English. (LOTE)
As part of certain point – based Australian PR applications, a candidate, upon passing
his/her exam is given 5 (bonus) points for their Australian PR application.
The Tamil language has been around for thousands of years and is also the longest
surviving classical language in the world, spoken by millions. As Tamil is a globally
recognized language, it is accepted as one for the LOTE; and thereby for the
Credentialed Community Language (CCL) exam.
The test – taker should not just have a high level of competency or knowledge of
vocabulary, he/she must also be able to convey the exact meaning of what the speaker
speaks and translate it from English to Tamil and vice versa.
