As an official Cambridge Examination Centre, we offer our students the choice to take a Cambridge exam at our premises. Taking exams in their familiar environment within small groups, helps students to be calm and confident while enables them to achieve the best possible results.
We offer exam preparation for a variety of levels for children and adults. The Cambridge Young Learners exams (Starters, Movers, Flyers) have been especially designed to be pleasant and stimulating for children between the ages of seven and twelve. These are followed by the Key English Test (KET), Preliminary English Test (PET), International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), and International English Language Testing System (IELTS). We also prepare students for a variety of other exams on an individual basis.
We offer courses in English to school children from the first grade through to graduation and we offer our students the choice to take University of Cambridge Exams, which are recognised and accepted worldwide.
In order to maintain high quality standards, there is a maximum of 5-10 students in a group while the duration of our lessons is 1 hour and 30 minutes (or slightly more for advanced levels) so that each student can get the necessary attention and opportunity to practise and ask questions.
All our classrooms are fully-equipped with Interactive Boards, which are the latest technological advancement in the field of education. These electronic boards bring the children’s favourite book characters to life though animation, video clips and educational games, among many others. As a result, they enable students to actively participate in the lesson, which is made more lively, fun and much more effective. By sparking the students’ imagination and inquisitive nature, we aim to stimulate and maintain their interest in English.
