What Are Cambridge Exam Preparation Courses?

Cambridge Exam Preparation courses give you a thorough, detailed understanding of the Cambridge Exam structure and teach you the best test-taking strategies. You’ll also practice the English you need to do well. Our lessons offer you a chance to take practice tests, learn the best techniques and feel confident on test day.

You can prepare for several Cambridge Exam Preparation courses: the Preliminary English Test (PET), the First Certificate (FCE), the Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) or the Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE). (If you want a better understanding of each test, please read this post!)

We offer both regular and intensive preparation courses - with our preparation courses, you’ll feel confident and prepared to succeed!
