COURSE DESCRIPTION

Our Cambridge courses are designed for those who need English in order to pass an official exam such as the B2 First (FCE), C1 Advanced (CAE) or C2 Proficiency (CPE).

We currently offer two types of Cambridge courses. The first being an 8 week intensive course for either 4 or 8 hours a week and the second which lasts the entire academic year. Both courses are designed to help you prepare for the various parts of the exam and to assist you in passing as soon as you are ready.

Our exam preparation courses are taught by qualified teachers who are experienced in preparing students for the Cambridge ESOL exam. The classes are dynamic and practical, focused on the knowledge and skills needed in order to pass the exam.

Classes will be held online or in person – you choose which – always in small groups of up to 8-10 students to ensure personal attention from the teacher.

Oxford House also offers you a free Cambridge mock exam, which not only allows you to get a feel for the real thing but also gives you an idea when you will be ready to sit for the official exam.
