The Cambridge exams are the world’s leading range of certificates for learners of English. Each year they are taken by over 1.5 million people in 135 countries. The CAE and the CPE are recog­nised by the majority of British and a lot of American universities for English entrance require­ments.

The Cambridge Certificate Courses are two intensive language training courses for the Certificate in Advanced English (CAE), the second, and the Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE), the third and most advanced exam of the three widely known and taken international examinations offe­red by the University of Cambridge. We will meet in either double lessons fortnightly or weekly single lessons during two semesters depending on the general timetable. Your examinations, which cost approx. CHF 400.-, will take place in Basel on two different days in May and June, right at the end of our one-year course. The results of the entry test in December 2023 will decide whether you should join the CAE or the CPE course.

Students who wish to participate should be highly motivated, fluent and prepared to work through sets of the five different exam papers (Reading, Writing, Use of English, Listening and Speaking) of previous years: Apart from filling your specific language gaps in the lessons you will also have to work a lot at home; especially essay-writing and use of English will have to be trained extensively.

If you are not yet working at full capacity and love English, join us.
