Preparation courses for B2 Cambridge English


We recommend a high B2 or a C1. The course is focussed on exam practice at a level of English which will give you a high probability of passing. 

If you have a low or middle B2 level, we recommend you take a general English course to raise your level and later on you can take one of these specialised courses when you are ready.
