About the FCE Course
Cambridge B2 First Prep Course
Studying for a Cambridge exam can provide you with development in all the areas of language: writing, reading, listening, speaking, vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. B2 First, formerly known as Cambridge English: First (FCE), is one of the Cambridge English Qualifications. It is their most popular exam, accepted by thousands of businesses and educational institutions worldwide.
A teacher who holds an international certificate that endorses their knowledge and ability in the language has much higher chances of being promoted or having better job offers. Preparing for B2 First leads to more confidence and efficiency when performing in English. Therefore, the candidate feels respected and admired by their peers and students. B2 First is an initial step towards more advanced examinations such as C1 Advanced and C2 Proficiency. It is a boosting element that allows teachers to aim higher and achieve increasing levels of proficiency in the language.
