Award Ceremony of the Cambridge English Certificates
Last Tuesday we had the pleasure to host Mr. Kear, the Exams Services Manager from the British Council Barcelona, who will be handing over the Cambridge certificates of all English levels taken in June: Starters (pre-A1), Movers (A1) Key for schools (A2), PET for schools ( B1), FCE for schools ( B2) and CAE ( C1).
Since 2012, we have been part of the Cambridge English for schools project, becoming a Cambridge exam preparation centre; we follow the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. We have put into practice the first stage of the project which has lasted 5 years. We believe that these exams, which are based on real-life situations, help learners to develop the same skills they need to communicate and thrive outside the classroom.
Our main objective is to engage and motivate students to consolidate their English language acquisition and at the same time to prepare them how to cope with exam situations, which will be a useful training experience to familiarize them with the format of the Cambridge English exams as well as those they will take in future years, such as Brevet and BAC in Baccalaureate.
We must provide our students with the necessary skills and behavior to achieve their competences and make their own progress throughout their education.
