Summer Cambridge Preparation classes for teens at Oxford House Barcelona
 

COURSE OVERVIEW

Take advantage of the summer holidays and pass the Cambridge B2 First, C1 Advanced or C2 Proficiency exams for teenagers.

Our Cambridge Summer Club is an exam preparation course that is ideal for students aged 12-17 years old. Whether they are studying the exam for the first time or looking for some last minute practice, we have classes to suit everyone.

Classes will be held online or in person – you choose which – always in small groups to ensure individual attention and feedback from the teacher.

Starting on 6th July and with the possibility of signing up for 2 or 4 weeks, the course will equip your teens with all the skills they need to succeed.

The Cambridge mock exam, which is included in the price of the course, will give students a taste of the real thing and will also allow our qualified and experienced teachers to recommend when they’ll be ready to sit the official exam.

LEVELS

The Cambridge English qualifications are some of the most well-known and respected language exams in the world. They not only certify your child’s level of English for work or study purposes, but also help them become confident and effective communicators in English – an international language that will be enormously helpful during their careers and all throughout their lives.

At Oxford House we offer intensive summer courses for the B2 First for Schools (FCE), C1 Advanced (CAE) and C2 Proficiency (CPE) exams.

FCE I

Ideal for upper-intermediate (B2) level students with no prior experience studying the First Certificate, this course provides learners with an in-depth introduction to the exam. Students look at the four papers (reading and use of English, writing, listening and speaking) in detail and start learning the vocabulary, grammar and other skills they need to be successful.

During the course students focus on the First for Schools exam, which has been specifically written with teens in mind.

FCE II

More suitable for those who already have some experience with the First Certificate, this course focuses heavily on exam skills and strategies to help your teenagers get the best marks possible.

As with the FCE I course, students will prepare for the First for Schools exam.

CAE

This course is for advanced or C1 level learners. Although not compulsory, most students go on to take the Advanced Certificate after passing the First Certificate (FCE). The classes are tailored to the students’ needs and incorporate all four areas of the exam while building their language skills at the same time.

CPE

If your child already has the Advanced Certificate (CAE) and is looking to stand out from the crowd, this is the exam for them. The Proficiency is highest level exam on offer and helps students in both their future professional and personal lives. During the course, they will look at what makes this exam different from the rest and learn the strategies they need to pass it.

METHODOLOGY

Our dedicated teachers work hard to create a laidback and welcoming environment and this is only improved by the great summer weather!

All courses begin with a needs analysis, which helps the teachers to tailor the classes to the needs of the group and work on the areas the students struggle with most.

Then, after the teachers have introduced the topics and the different parts of the exams in engaging and dynamic ways, the students will be motivated and raring to go!

Throughout the course students get plenty of exam practice – and this includes a full mock exam with trained examiners. Taking place on a Saturday morning, this gives students the confidence they need for the real thing.

At the end of the course students receive a report and a recommendation from their teacher about their suitability to sign up for the official exam.

With OH Connect, our virtual learning platform, students can complete homework activities and interact with their classmates. You can also log in to keep up-to-date with what they have been doing.
