By following one of the Cambridge English courses, you improve your general level of English across the four essential language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing and develop your fluency through discussion about various topics. In addition, you continue to perfect your grammar, broaden your vocabulary and improve your punctuation.

 

During the morning sessions, the focus is on developing generic exam skills and techniques on how to approach an exam. During afternoon classes, your teacher will help you  develop exam techniques specific to the Cambridge exam tasks.

 

Your Cambridge English exam preparation class includes guidance on how to become a more independent learner, through learner-centred sessions and monthly tutorials with the ESE Exam Coordinator.

 

You may study English for Cambridge exams at the following different levels:

  • Preliminary English Test (PET)
  • First Certificate Test (FCE)
  • Cambridge Advanced English (CAE)
  • Cambridge Proficiency English (CPE)

To follow a Cambridge exam preparation course with ESE you must be at least 17 years old and have a minimum language level relevant to the level of the exam you choose to sit for. 

The levels of proficiency required to be accepted on a Cambridge course are as follows:

  • You must have an intermediate level (B1 CEFR) of English to apply for PET
  • You must have an upper intermediate level (B2 CEFR) of English to apply for FCE
  • You must have an advanced level of English (C1 CEFR) to apply for CAE
  • You must be proficient in English (C2 CEFR) to apply for CPE

If you are not yet at the required language level, you can join a pre-sessional English language course or Academic Year Course before enrolling on the Cambridge examination preparation course of your choice. The Cambridge examinations are held in Malta in March, June, August (FCE and CAE only) and December. Start dates for the Cambridge courses depend on the level and examination you can follow.

What is your level of English?​

Don’t worry – we’ll walk you through it.

Before booking, you are required to submit a 200-250 word essay on a given title which will be reviewed by our exam coordinator. However, it will be your second test which determines allocation to a class. This is held on your first day at the school to re-confirm your level. These tests are conducted for the sole purpose of ensuring you follow your course at the right level in order to achieve your academic goals.
