Cambridge B2 First

Updated: Dec 29, 2023



On our Cambridge B2 First Examination Courses (FCE)


In the morning, you will attend our group English lessons at an appropriate level. These focus on improving your general English language skills. During these lessons you will practice the four English skills; speaking, listening, reading and writing, cover grammar and also expand your vocabulary. This helps to provide you with invaluable general training in order to take English Language exams.


In the afternoon you will attend our B2 First Cambridge Exam option class. You will now focus exclusively on examination preparation. These lessons are based on up to date examination course books and past papers and will train students for each examination module. The teacher will also focus on exam techniques. Each week you will be given timed past exam papers to do and you will also have the opportunity do examination practice exercises on the internet for extra examination practice. You should expect around 1.5 hours of homework on most evenings.


Benefits of taking The Cambridge FCE Exam


A B2 First certificate is valid for life. You will not need to take the exam again.

B2 First is a truly international certificate, recognised around the world for business and study purposes. Many employers, universities and government departments officially recognise B2 First as an Upper Intermediate qualification in English. B2 First offers you a chance to find out your strengths and weaknesses in using English, and gives you a pathway to higher qualifications such as the Cambridge Advanced Certificate (CAE). FCE is at Level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) — an internationally recognised benchmark of language ability.


What you will be able to do after taking a FCE Course

You will have developed your general reading skills which will enable you to understand the main ideas of complex pieces of writing and deal confidently with different types of text, such as fiction, newspapers and magazines.


You will have developed your general grammar and structure skills which will enable you to confidently produce clear, detailed writing, expressing opinions and explaining the advantages and disadvantages of different points of view.


You will have developed your general listening skills which will enable you to follow and understand a range of spoken materials, such as news programmes, talks, presentations and everyday conversations.


You will have developed your speaking skills even more which will enable you to communicate confidently and effectively in face-to-face situations, keeping up a conversation on a fairly wide range of topics, expressing opinions and presenting arguments and deal with most of the situations you might meet when travelling as a tourist in an English-speaking country.
