FCE Preparation Course 2018

The FCE (the First Certificate in English) exam is a test of general English language ability run by Cambridge ESOL. As with other Cambridge exams such as the CAE (the Certificate of Advanced English) and CPE (the Certificate of Proficiency in English), the qualification is widely recognised in European countries by employers, and increasingly recognised in Asia and South America. It is not intended as a test that measures English ability for entry to English-speaking universities and other institutions, but a pass in one of the Cambridge exams is often accepted as evidence of English-language ability for this purpose. We offer full-time preparation courses for FCE from January, March and September. For exact exam dates, visit: www.cambridgeesol.org/exams.
