Cambridge B2 Preparation Course

Cambridge Assessment English

About the course

The perfect exam preparation course for the B2 First examination - formerly known as Cambridge English: First (FCE). This programme will combine an intensive language course with FCE exam preparation.

Objectives

This course focuses on the language and communication skills required for each section of the exam, as well as the specific skills for achieving your full potential on the day of the exam.

  • Morning programme: an intensive language programme with classes covering grammar and vocabulary, reading and listening comprehension, varieties of written English and speaking practice, all of which are essential for success in this exam. We still believe it is important to improve your English as well as practise for the exam.
  • Afternoon programme: a specific exam preparation programme with special classes focusing on the techniques, strategies and language necessary in all four parts of the exam.

Monitoring your progress

Your classroom studies will be supported by carefully-guided homework and self-study throughout the course. Regular one-to-one tutorials are held to enable you to discuss your progress with your tutor. There will also be formal "mock" tests throughout the course to help you to see your progress and to identify areas that need improvement.

Outcomes

You will improve your accuracy and fluency in English to the level required for the B2 First exam, as well as become familiar with the different papers, in order to reach your full potential.
