Cambridge exam

The Cambridge course in Manchester consists of 20, 25 or 30 lessons per week and prepares you for the FCE or CAE exam. Cambridge First and Advanced exams cover writing, reading, grammar, listening and speaking and the course at British Study Centres will prepare you for all these different parts of the exam. The course works across the skills base and concentrates on English in use.

In addition, you will do a lot of work on areas of general English, so you certainly will not spend all your time doing practice exams. At the end of the course we want you to pass the exam but also to have learned a lot of English and to have enjoyed your stay.

Please note that the course has specific starting dates and a fixed duration of 4 or 6 weeks (depending on the starting dates).
