approximately 260 hours (60 hours lessons plus 5-10 hours homework per week).

Entry requirements

The CPE course is for people who master the English language, and want to prove it! CPE is the most Advanced Cambridge exam. All candidates for the CPE course (except those with a CAE or equivalent C1 level certificate) do 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, giving 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 of that level. The test costs 50 euros and is NOT included in the course price.

Introduction

CPE is Cambridge ESOL's most advanced exam. The FLOT Academie CPE Course is the ideal course for you if you use English for professional or study purposes at a proper advanced (C1/C2) level and are approaching the fluency and sophistication of an educated first language speaker. This course helps you improve your English to C2 level – the highest on the CEF scale. If you want to confirm your achievement, there’s the opportunity to take the Cambridge ESOL CPE exam at the end of the course.
