CPE preparation course

 

Course description:

Our CPE exam preparation course will help you to improve your chances of success in the exam. The preparation course will get you ready for the 5 papers of the exam: reading, writing, use of English, listening and speaking.

Studying for CPE helps learners to improve their language skills and to learn to use them in a wide range of contexts. Because many aspects of the exams are based on realistic tasks, gaining the CPE certificate demonstrates that learners have progressed beyond a good knowledge of vocabulary and grammar to actually using the language.
