Cambridge B2 First Certificate Intensive Courses for students aged 15-17

Our Cambridge B2 First Certificate Exam preparation course (FCE) is specially designed to prepare young learners to take the official Cambridge First Certificate exam at the end of their 3 week summer course.

Our teachers are experienced in preparing students for the exam.  They will teach you the language and skills you need in dedicated classes and workshops.

On our three week intensive Cambridge B2 First Certificate course you will:

  • have 60 hours full-time preparation for all areas of the B2 First Certificate exam
  • present arguments and express opinions to develop your spoken and written English
  • focus on the grammar and vocabulary you need to pass the B2 First exam
  • scan different texts and make notes about the most important information
  • do timed exam practice tests and receive feedback to help you improve before you take the exam.
  • have regular homework
  • learn the best exam techniques and improve your skills with focused exam workshops
  • have one to one tutorials with your main teacher who will give you advice about the language areas you need to improve and how to do that

We expect you to speak English all the time in and out of class and to work hard.

But it’s not all study, study, study …. You’ll relax and make friends with our other international summer school students at break times and after school. Each week you will have 3 evening social or sports activities too and an all-day coach or train excursion each Saturday

What is Cambridge B2 First and who is it for?

I would like to thank you for the excellent experience that Federico had with Isca School and with Sinnot family too! He is very satisfied for all and I think he has improved his English indeed. I hope to join you again next year. Kind regards.
