Around the world: Cambridge exams courses (séjours linguistiques)

The Cambridge exams are extremely popular in Switzerland and France. They will carry weight on your CV. The exams test your ability to listen, speak and read and write in English. Cambridge exams have an excellent reputation world-wide.

There are different exam levels from pre-intermediate to advanced. You must show that you have the necessary level before you can start the exam preparation course. We will test you and plan your exam course before you leave for your language travel.

If your level is not so strong, we recommend you start with General English until you are ready to start an exam preparation.

The most popular Cambridge exams are the Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) C1 and the First Certificate (FCE) upper intermediate B2.
