BEC Preparation Course 2017 and 2018

Full-time course combining General English or English for Business with BEC preparation.

The Business English Certificate exams are designed to test English-language ability in international business settings. These qualifications are becoming widely recognised by employers, especially in European countries.

The levels of the BEC Preliminary, Vantage and Higher exams correspond roughly to our intermediate, upper intermediate and advanced levels (or to Cambridge PET, FCE and CAE levels). All three exams have reading, writing, listening and speaking components.
