Learning outcomes of the course
The Advanced English course was created in order to offer a challenge and means of development to those students who are at about a C1 level in English.
After successfully completing this course, you will have polished your advanced written and oral English skills towards passing the Cambridge Advanced English (CAE) exam. This requires demonstrating a level 5 on a scale of six which equals C1 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The sixth level in this framework is comparable to a native speaker.
You will learn about and practice all 18 areas of the CAE exam which are under one of the following categories: reading and use of English, writing, listening and speaking.
The first contact lesson is mandatory and includes a pre-test to ensure the course prerequisite of B2/C1 level of English, which is required to successfully complete the course.
