As students move up grades, the interview tasks require use of more difficult language.

Our teachers will prepare you for the exam by using engaging lessons to help you build confidence and develop your communicative skills.

The exam is in the form of a one-to-one face-to-face interview with the examiner. The tasks given in the exam depend on the stage.
