Cambridge exam preparation classes

Why take an official exam?

If you want to be able to demonstrate how good your English is, there's nothing better than being able to include having passed a Cambridge English exam on your curriculum.

We offer classes to prepare you specifically for some of the most widely recognised English exams in the world.

Specifically, we prepare you to take four of the Cambridge English exams: PET, FCE, CAE and IELTS.

PET (Preliminary English Test)

PET is an intermediate level exam, designed to test and show your ability to cope with everyday written and spoken communications in English.

PET is level B1 on the Council of Europe's Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

FCE (First Certificate in English)

An upper-intermediate level exam, one of the biggest official English exams in the world.

Essentially, a pass on it means that you can communicate successfully in English, even though you are not yet completely proficient. According to Cambridge English, it "indicates sufficient proficiency in English to be of practical use (...) where contact with English speakers is required".

FCE is level B2 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

CAE (Certificate in Advanced English),

CAE is level C1 on the Common European Framework, and therefore more advanced than FCE, shows that "you can communicate with confidence in English for work or study purposes". Passing it thus indicates that you are really becoming "proficient" in English...

IELTS

IELTS (the International English Language Testing System) is designed to show that you can communicate successfully in English, and is "for people who intend to study or work where English is the language of communication."

If you want to study abroad, you will find that many institutions in Australia, Britain, the US and elsewhere will accept a good IELTS score as a suitable qualification.
