Maximise your chances of passing the B1 Preliminary Cambridge exam!

Taught by Cambridge speaking examiners and invigilators, this course will give you essential hints and tips to ensure that you are well prepared for the Cambridge Preliminary exam.

The Cambridge Preliminary exam can be used as immigration documentation for family reunification. Unlike the IELTS and TOEFL exams, which only last two years, a Cambridge certificate lasts a lifetime. This course prepares you for the revised B1 Preliminary Exam 2020. For further details please go to the following webpage:
https://www.cambridgeenglish.org/exams-and-tests/preliminary/exam-format/2020-update/

Each of the five sessions of the course will cover elements of a specific exam part:


  • Writing

  • Reading & Use of English

  • Listening

  • Speaking & review



You will have the opportunity to practice your writing by answering previous writing exam questions for which you will receive detailed feedback from your teacher. This will ensure you are ready for the writing exam and will also give your teacher an insight into any grammatical problems you may need help with.

On this course, you will complete selected chapters from the Complete Preliminary book, which is full of authentic exam tasks plus exercises that are designed to maximise your performance in the actual exam.

The book includes access to online practice, which contains a vocabulary section, downloadable audio, grammar tests and information about common exam errors. This gives you the opportunity to practice at home through self-study.

You should expect 2-4 hours of preparation each week, which includes the written assignments.

Note! This course requires a confirmed start level of B1. To find your current level, please take our free online test here: cambridgeinstitute.dk/da/praktisk-info/sprogtest

Studieskolen is the only test centre in Denmark that is allowed to arrange the Cambridge English exams and as Cambridge Institute is a part of Studieskolen, when you participate in the course, you will receive a 10% discount on the price of the exam, which is normally 2,295 kr.
