    Cambridge Certification Exams

    We make available Cambridge certification exams for both general English and for specific fields, such as Business English (BEC), also with special regard for young learners from age seven and up. 
    We administer the following Cambridge exams:

    • KET (Key English Test), corresponding to the A2 level of the QCER;
    • KET (Key English Test) for Schools, corresponding to the A2 level of the QCER;
    • PET (Preliminary English Test), B1 level;
    • PET (Preliminary English Test) for Schools, B1 level;
    • FCE (First Certificate in English), B2 level;
    • FCE (First Certificate in English) for Schools, B2 level;
    • CAE (Cambridge Advanced English), C1 level;
    • CPE (Cambridge Proficiency in English), C2 level;
    • BEC (Business English), articulated in Preliminary (B1), Vantage (B2) and Higher (C1);
    • YLE (Young Learners), structured in three tests: Starters, Movers and Flyers, for children attending elementary or middle school.

    Since these Cambridge exams are officially recognised by the Ministry of Public Education, our target participants are above all high school students in need of a specific linguistic preparation applicable in formative credits for graduation or for a certification valid for the university chosen in Italy or abroad, along with university students wishing to obtain a certification for purposes of study abroad and beyond.

    Together with our young students, there are those adult workers who desire to strengthen their professional CV for increased opportunity, and those private students motivated to study English for personal interest or for tourism. Furthermore, we offer certification exams for school-age children to introduce them to the world of certifications and sustain their motivation for studying English from an early age.
