The aim of this course is to prepare learners for the FCE exam at the B2 level (upper-intermediate) which they will take at the end of the course.


After students pass the FCE exam they will receive their internationally recognized Cambridge certificate stating that their English language is at the B2 level (upper-intermediate). This will enable them to apply for courses which require such a certificate from people whose first language is not English.


Applicants should have a very good command of conversational and written English at the intermediate level. They are assessed prior to placement on this course. Suitable candidates should be able to express themselves freely and fluently on a range of topics.
