Course - Cambridge Examination Preparation


Program Description

Every year, over 3 million people sit Cambridge ESOL Examinations in over 150 countries worldwide. Cambridge Examinations assess candidates’ ability to communicate effectively in English by testing all four language skills – reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Thousands of universities, companies and government agencies around the world recognise Cambridge Certificates as proof of your level of English.

Which exam is best for me?

When you register with us or on your first day, you will take a short test to assess your level of English. Based on the test results and our interview with you, our advisors will recommend the best class for you and advise which exam would be most appropriate for you.

We offer preparation courses for Cambridge General English Exams, levels pre-intermediate to proficiency (KET, PET, FCE, CAE, CPE).

We can also prepare you for the Cambridge Business English Exams (BEC) and Financial (ICFE) and Legal English Exams (ILEC).

What is the course like?

Throughout your studies, your progress will be closely monitored; you will be given homework and encouraged to use our free online and offline self-study materials. You will have access to past examination papers to help prepare you for what to expect in the exam and will also be given advice on exam revision and technique.

If you would like to take General English classes alongside your exam preparation course, we will try to arrange lessons to fit around your schedule. Our General English classes are designed to help you focus on improving your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills, while developing pronunciation, vocabulary and social and idiomatic English.

Our friendly and experienced teachers and administrative staff ensure that each and every student receives the very best in English language tuition. Students are free to visit our office whenever they need (if only to say ‘hello!’), which fosters a welcoming atmosphere at the school and students can feel secure knowing that we are always on hand to help with any queries. A recent survey showed that many of our current students chose to register with our school because they were recommended by a friend: we are very proud of this result because we believe it is the ultimate testament to the quality of our service and to the happy environment of our school. Crest Schools of English is rated Grade 1: Exceeds Expectations by the UK’s Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI).

Our school is affiliated with London Crest Open Centre; one of the UK’s leading IELTS, Cambridge and Trinity exam centre, which also makes us an ideal choice for exam preparation courses. Location Crest Schools of English is based in a pleasant suburb of London called Edgware. The school is located on the main street, which means students can enjoy shops, restaurants and cafes in their free time and we are just a one-minute walk to the station. The advantage of being here is that you can easily visit central London by bus or tube to enjoy the magnificent sights and fantastic nightlife – but without the stress or cost of living in the centre. It is an equally convenient location for those who want to visit the many beautiful places outside London and who want to experience real English living first-hand. Read less
