Hi, everyone

In the following excerpt, would you use "Test of Oral Language Proficiency in English" or "Test of English Oral Proficiency" (Test of Oral English Proficiency)?

This hybrid research study is included in the line of work regarding language proficiency assessment. It investigates the validity of the grammar descriptors of the Test of English Oral Proficiency, specifically designed for teachers of English as a foreign language in Brazil."

Thank you very much!

    No, I wouldn't include the word "Language". In this context it is unnecessary.
    If anything, I'd be inclined to change it to "test of oral proficiency in English" or "English oral proficiency test".
