Intensive First Certificate in English
First Certificate in English (FCE) is an intermediate level Cambridge ESOL exam, at level B2 of the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. FCE indicates sufficient proficiency in English to be of practical use in clerical, secretarial and managerial jobs in many industries, in particular tourism, where contact with English speakers is required. FCE Intensive courses is ideal for students who want to to accelerate preparation for the FCE examination.
I took a FCE preparation course in GISOEL and I must say that it was really a good experience, the school is different to other English schools that I’ve tried which can be sometimes boring. The course was focused in FCE so we worked with old exam papers and this kind of stuff but at the same time the methodology used in the school (based in PBL method) makes the classes interesting and allows you to improve your english skills by yourself which is, in my opinion, the best way for learning a foreign language.
