Core Programme

Cambridge English: B2 First (FCE), C1 Advanced (CAE) & C2 Proficiency (CPE)

B2 | C1 | C2

Cambridge English examinations are recognised by employers and universities all over the world. BEET has been running Cambridge English examination courses for over 40 years, and thousands of students have passed their exams after studying at the school.

You can do the main programme of 20 lessons (15 hours) per week, but if you would like to study more and improve your chances of success in the exam, you are able to take 4 or 8 additional lessons per week on our Options Programme. Talk to us if you would like to discuss the best option for you.


Core Programme: Cambridge English Examination Preparation

All courses are of fixed length, apart from our summer B2 First (FCE) & C1 Advanced (CAE) courses which are between 4 & 8 weeks (depending on your own availability and level).

If you are unsure whether your English level is high enough, please contact the school or your educational consultant who will arrange for you to take a test.

If your level is a little too low, you can join a General English Course before you start the exam course.

On the first day, you are given a comprehensive test to identify your exact level. You are then placed in a class of students at your level, all preparing for the same examination. For some Cambridge English exams there may be several “micro-levels”, each at a slightly different level from the others, and ranging from ‘C’ to ‘A’ grade expectations.

Your course will build your confidence and accuracy in all forms of the language. You will receive extensive training in examination techniques, and sit at least one mock examination. Your speaking will abilities will be personally assessed by senior members of the teaching staff on most courses.

All Cambridge English teachers at BEET have many years of experience delivering the preparation courses, so you can be assured that we have extensive knowledge of the requirements of the Cambridge English examining board.

BEET is a major centre of Cambridge English examination courses, producing excellent results.

Success at BEET is due to four main qualities:

• high student motivation
• innovative teaching
• constant monitoring of each student
• detailed course planning

Class Sizes:
September to June: Maximum 13
