Preparatory Course for Cambridge First Certification (FCE)


The First Certificate in English (FCE) is the most widely taken Cambridge EFL examination, with more than a quarter of a million candidates yearly.

The FCE examination tests the ability of candidates to handle the main structures of the English language with some confidence, show knowledge of a wide range of vocabulary and communicate in a number of social situations. When listening or reading, candidates should be able to go beyond able to pick out items of information, and they should be able to distinguish between main and subsidiary points and between the gist of a text and specific detail. They should be able to write texts of various types, showing the ability to develop an argument as well as describe or recount events.

An FCE certificate is widely recognized in the English-speaking world as proof that a person can do office work in English or take a course of study where English is the language of instruction. Learners at this level can be assumed to have sufficient ability to operate effectively in English in many clerical, secretarial and managerial posts.
