The Cambridge Examinations are made up of the First Certificate in English (FCE), Cambridge Advanced Examination (CAE) and the Cambridge Proficiency Examination (CPE).
Recognised by many universities and other educational institutions as proof of intermediate level English skills, the FCE certificate is an important benefit for anyone who wants to work or study abroad, or in international business.
FCE is designed for students whose command of English is adequate for many practical everyday purposes. Students will possess a wide grasp of vocabulary, and should be able to construct an argument and use appropriate communication styles for a variety of situations. However, students may have trouble with some unacquainted subject areas, and lack control over longer, more complex conversations
Typical learners are able to use the language easily and fluently, and are aware of the relationship between language and culture, and of the significance of register. With the ability to adapt language to context and situations, using English in a creative and flexible way. However students may still have trouble in some particularly complex situations, and responding to multiple sources of information on unfamiliar topics.
CPE is for students who hold a high level of language skills and are able to function effectively in almost any English-speaking context. Students will have a grasp of English similar to that of an educated native speaker. The main focus of a course is therefore on lexical and pragmatic features, rather than grammatical features of the language.
. CPE certificates are recognised by higher education institutions in many countries -including almost all universities in the United Kingdom and a rapidly growing number in the USA, as well as a wide range of employers.
