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 with our school’s director of studies before you leave.
