Cambridge English Centre offers courses to adults of all levels. All our teachers are native English speakers and are qualified and experienced in teaching English as a foreign language. Our groups are small with a maximum of twelve students per class.
We offer Adult group classes at all levels from Elementary to Advanced. We also run adult Cambridge exam preparation courses for PET (B1), FIRST (B2) and ADVANCED (C1). All our adult students attend class for 3 hours per week (2 x 1.5 hour classes). We also offer Saturday morning 3 hour classes and conversation classes.
Students who have demonstrated that they have a good grasp of the basic language at KET or Pre-Intermediate level move onto our PET (Preliminary English Test) course, which is equivalent to level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
Cambridge First (First Certificate in English) is the most important exam for the majority of our students and is becoming increasingly necessary for university and work. Our FCE preparation courses not only reinforce the grammar and vocabulary required at this upper intermediate level, but also focus on exam skills and practice. Furthermore, strong emphasis is placed on developing writing skills for the different styles and tasks required in the exam. FCE is equivalent to level B2 of the Common European Framework for Languages.
More and more of our students are joining our Cambridge Advanced preparation courses once they have passed the FCE in order to continue their studies and demonstrate their level of English at a higher level (C1). The Cambridge Advanced is the qualification most often required to work or study in an English-speaking country.
A Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE) qualification shows the world that you have mastered English to an exceptional level. It proves you can communicate with the fluency and sophistication of a highly competent English speaker. Preparing for and passing the exam means you have the level of English that’s needed to study or work in a very senior professional or academic environment, for example on a postgraduate or PhD programme.
