EFL - First Certificate in English - FCE


About the course

This is an intermediate English course for people with a working knowledge of English grammar and who can manage independently in an English-speaking environment.

You need a working knowledge of the basic grammatical structures of English, and be able to manage independently in an English-speaking environment.

You will study four core skills - Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, in addition to use of English. As well as preparing thoroughly for the FCE exam, you will also develop your ability to use English in everyday life.

You will take the Cambridge First Certificate in English exam. The exam has a registration fee of £110 and a coursebook costing £20.

Most successful learners progress to the Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English (CAE), which is the minimum standard of English accepted in many British Universities.
