Preparation for the Cambridge English & TOEFL Tests

TELS offers preparation training for people who want to make the Cambridge English & TOEFL Tests.

The Cambridge English series of qualifications

The Cambridge University prepared English tests are recognised world-wide and are designed to indicate a person's current level of the four language skills of reading, speaking, writing and listening. There are various levels of competency, for which you will receive a formal certificate on successfully passing the chosen test. The levels follow the CEFR ratings and are designated as the KET (A2), PET (B1) FCE (B2) and CPE (C1). There are other tests available for business and advanced English.

Full details can be viewed at the Cambridge English website along with a current level assessment check, lots of practice exercises and simulated tests.

The TOEFL iBT® qualification

The TOEFL is an academic English language qualification acceptable to the authorities if you want to work or study in certain English speaking countries, particularly the USA. It is a widely recognised qualification accepted by academic institutions around the world that can be used to determine whether a non-native speaker's standard of English is good enough, for example, to take a university degree course. It is also used by companies doing international recruitment to ensure a non-native speaker's English is also adequate.

The tests for each skill last for approximately 90 minutes and are made consecutively. The whole test takes a full day with a short ten-minute break halfway through.
