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 click here:

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.

The Moodle learning platform
Moodle is the online course platform of Cambridge Institute, which we use for all our courses. You will be given personal access to your course Moodle page, where you can:

  • Find your course plan and teaching material

  • Find homework

  • Watch videos and click on links to useful English resources on the Internet uploaded by your teacher

  • Find practical information about each lesson

  • Communicate with your teacher and fellow students

  • Follow the teaching and catch up via Moodle if you are ill or absent.

Note! We expect that we can run the course as normal classroom instruction. However, we always follow the authorities' recommendations. Therefore, in August we will take stock of the situation and make any necessary adjustments to the courses. For example, in relation to how many students can sit in a room or whether or not we need to change a course to online teaching and the like.

Tara recommends
Food and drink: Seafood is amazing in Ireland. The Galway Oyster and Seafood festival is well worth a visit. Irish lamb, traditional bread, cheese and anything dairy are also a must. 
Learning tips: Music can be a fun way of learning a new language. Listen to songs whilst reading the lyrics or singing along. This is how I improved my Danish pronunciation. Reading a book and discussing it with a friend is also enjoyable and productive.
Places to visit: Connemara, in the west of Ireland. Oscar Wilde referred to it as “A Savage Beauty”
Literature: Poetry, plays and crime novels. What she’d recommend ; The boy in the striped pyjamas ( John Boyne), The Field ( John B Keane), The Lost Symbol ( Dan Brown), The poetry of William Butler Yeats.
