Why, when and where?

First Certificate ExamHello all,

Welcome to our BLOG!!!!

We are a group of English teachers, with many years of experience teaching English as a second language.


We have said it many times and always the same question comes up…

“Why should I take the exam?”

Well, it is the next logical step after maybe years of effort learning English… It is, above everything, a way to prove to yourself how much you have learned and t to walk away with a final reward for your effort, The First Certificate Diploma.

Moreover, if you want to study or work in an English speaking country you must probably need to prove your level of English.

Having the First Certificate Diploma proves that you can use every day written and spoken English at an upper-intermediate level, a B2 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, for work and study purposes.

Cambridge ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) exams are officially accepted by thousands of universities, employers and governments around the world. Find out who accepts Cambridge examinations.

Also, the First Certificate Exam is a very comprehensive examination. It covers all areas and skills of the language: reading, writing, listening, speaking and the use of English (grammar and vocabulary) and just getting ready for it, whether you decide to take the exam or not, will help you achieve the level of English you need more effectively than any other course.

      Hello Nicole,

      The official FCE cannot be taken online. You will need to find an examination centre in your area, register and go there to take the exam.

      We are NOW developing an online FCE preparation course that has many exam-like practice activities to help you prepare for the exam.
      Stay tuned for more information about this new course.
