ELC runs Cambridge ESOL exam preparation courses for the Cambridge First (FCE) and Cambridge Advanced (CAE) exams .  These are General English exams which test your ability on the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing, and the systems of vocabulary and grammar.  They are often used on resumes to show prospective employers your level of English, and are internationally recognised.

 The Cambridge ESOL courses will prepare you for the exam, while at the same time improving your English to the required level.  Courses are ten weeks long and take place at fixed dates in the year.  The exams can be taken in March, June and November at one of the local test centres.  Please note, you must be intermediate level to join the FCE class and upper-intermediate to join the CAE class.

 Courses are 20 lessons per week and can be combined with General English afternoon electives.
