Cambridge English exam preparation





These courses are aimed at adults,16 years old and above, who want to prepare for the internationally recognised FCE, CAE or CPE exams. The lessons focus on improving students’ general English and to prepare the student with the exam techniques required to successfully pass all the exam papers.  The classes are small – no more than 10 students in a class.

B2 First (FCE)
FCE is an upper-intermediate level qualification. It is recognised globally and it proves you can use every day spoken and written English for work and study purposes.

C1 Advanced (CAE)
CAE is an internationally recognised exam for advanced level of English. Passing CAE demonstrates a high-level of language skills needed for success in study and work. Many top colleges, universities and places of work accept CAE.

C2 Proficiency (CPE)
CPE is a recognised exam accepted by thousands of leading businesses and educational institutions worldwide. It shows you have achieved an extremely high level in English, and can communicate with fluency similar to a native speaker.

Course description:

The lessons focus on improving your general English and exam skills, getting you to the level needed to pass the exam papers. You will attend general English classes in the morning (15 hours per week) and exam preparation lessons three afternoons (6 hours per week).

The exam preparation lessons are based around topical issues and current affairs, while at the same time working on your vocabulary, grammar, syntax and oral skills. Our teachers will also prepare you for the techniques required to pass the exam papers and you will also be given real exam papers to work on. Each student will have regular mock exams with detailed feedback provided by the teacher.

Cambridge exam courses help our students:

  • Learn useful expressions and grammar
  • Practise listening and reading
  • Improve on accent, pronunciation and intonation
  • Develop the skills needed to answer exam questions
  • Reduce exam anxiety and build confidence in handling all exam papers
  • Receive individual feedback where your progress is reviewed and goals are set.

"I really enjoy being a student at Oxford ILS.  Currently I'm taking private classes to prepare for the CAE exam.  Studying in this school is a great experience.  I have improved quite a lot, above all my speaking skills.  The programme is great, includes everything from listening, reading to speaking and expansion of vocabulary. Without doubt I strongly recommend this school to people who are looking for personal and private lessons."
