Which Cambridge English Qualifications can I prepare for with nativespeakers.ch?
Private lessons for Cambridge English: First (FCE)
The FCE is an English qualification at an "independent-user" level. Users at this level can, for example, express their feelings and opinions in writing, understand the key content of complex texts and communicate spontaneously and fluently with native speakers.
The FCE is the most popular Cambridge English exam in Switzerland and is used at a very wide range of schools (upper secondary schools, vocational training centres, high schools, universities, colleges of higher education, technical colleges, etc.). The FCE is also very well recognised in the business world and is therefore a valuable addition to any CV.
At upper secondary schools and vocational schools the FCE is often taken when starting or leaving school and is thus advantageous in the search for a job or apprenticeship. In many sectors of the business world, the FCE is the minimum requirement for English language skills.
Private lessons for Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE)
The CAE is an English qualification at an "advanced" level Users at this level can, for example, understand a wide range of demanding texts, express themselves spontaneously and fluently and comprehend implicit meanings, use English effectively and flexibly in social and professional situations, and discuss complex topics in a clear and structured way.
CAE is widely known in Switzerland and is frequently used as a final examination at higher-level schools (high schools, universities, colleges, etc.). It adds value to any CV and is recognised by a wide range of companies in Switzerland as a reliable confirmation of advanced skills in English.
These days, many companies require at least the FCE as proof of language competence. The CAE gives you the opportunity to stand out from the competition and thus increases your chances of being selected for a job.
Private lessons for Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE)
The CPE is an English qualification at a "highly-advanced" level. Users at this level can, for example, easily understand practically everything they read or hear, express themselves spontaneously, very fluently and precisely, and clearly communicate finer nuances of meaning when discussing complex topics.
The CPE is the highest-level Cambridge qualification and is used at higher-level schools (high schools, universities, teacher training colleges, etc.) as an entrance or final exam. The CPE provides a solid basis for studying in English or working towards a doctorate. Because of its very high level, the CPE enables you to stand out prominently from the competition when looking for a job. The Cambridge English Proﬁciency certificate is an outstanding achievement for anyone.
