Cambridge English Language course (FCE/CAE)
This English language Course is the ideal course for you if you regularly use written and spoken English for work, or study at an intermediate or advanced (B1/B2/C1) level. It helps you improve your English and gives you the opportunity to take the Cambridge ESOL exam - your first step towards gaining higher Cambridge ESOL qualifications such as the First Certificate of English (FCE), Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) or the Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE).
The goal of this English course is to raise the level of your English to upper-intermediate (B2) or advanced (C1) level. The course ends with an optional official FCE or CAE exam at the British Council. Of course, we encourage all our students to take the exam! Please note: the exam fee is NOT included in the course fee.
This English language course is for people who want to raise their English language skills to a higher level. Prior to this course, you should have at least completed senior secondary education and have a good command of English. All candidates for this course must participate in a digital intake test and a writing assignment to ensure they are at the correct level for the course. The intake test is a so-called placement test, which provides an indication of the level of the course a student can be placed in. It does not imply that the student has already achieved that level, but it indicates he/she can participate in a course at that level. Costs for this intake test are € 50,-. Please note that this fee is NOT included in the course price.
