Enrol now for these courses starting in January 2015:
At this level, you feel quite confident about your English. You can go to shops, travel, have conversations about everyday topics, read simple newspaper articles and write letters and emails. But you still cannot speak or read about anything complicated and you make quite a lot of mistakes.
On this course, you will practice your vocabulary and grammar so you can understand people better, talk about most everyday topics, write an interesting letter or email and make fewer mistakes.
This is the level at which you start to be a competent English speaker and writer. You can now communicate quite easily in your daily life especially in practical issues. But you need to develop your language to talk and write about more complicated subjects and to help you with your work.
On this course, you will focus on reading more challenging texts and writing about them. You will learn how to make a presentation, write formally and informally, and by the end of the course you will understand and use accurately the most common English grammar.
Do you need to learn English for your work or studies? Do you want a qualification recognised by employers and universities around the world? FCE is an upper-intermediate level qualification which proves you can use everyday written and spoken English for work or study. It is particularly useful if you want a career in which English is used as an international language.
This course will prepare you for the qualification and you will do mock exams to show you what level you are at. You will be advised where you can take the exam.
