Cambridge English Centre offers courses to teenagers aged up to 18. 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.
Once students start ESO, they move to our teenage classes and either do two 1.5-hour classes per week or join our intensive Friday-only classes. Our Teens have a wider variety of timetables to fit around their studies and all classes focus on preparation for one of the Cambridge English exams (KET, PET, FCE or CAE).
The Key English Test is the first level of the Cambridge English general exams for teenagers and adults. This Pre-intermediate level qualification is proof of your ability to use English to communicate in simple situations. The exam tests all four English language skills – reading, writing, listening and speaking. Obtaining the KET should give you the confidence to go on to study for higher-level English exams such as PET and FCE.
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.
