What You'll Learn

The ILSC Cambridge Mastery Program is designed to prepare you for success on the Cambridge Main Suite Exams (FCE, CAE, CPE, and BEC). The exams test reading, use of English, writing, listening and speaking, and all of these skills will be covered throughout the program. Instructors will use various methods to assess your strengths and weaknesses at the beginning of the program in order to focus the coursework on the skill areas that need the most improvement.

Weekly practise tests will measure your progress and help you become familiar with the type of questions and test materials you’ll encounter on the official exams. They’ll also help you get comfortable with completing exam tasks under pressure. A diverse range of multi-media materials will help familiarize you with different accents, and improve your listening comprehension.

While the program aim is to provide you with practise, skills and test-taking tips to succeed on the exam, it will also help you improve your overall English language skills and prepare you for success in higher education or work in an English-speaking country.
