Preparation: Cambridge CPE Booster

This second module in the CPE preparation course follows the CPE Starter course, which is obligatory. The focus is on the further development of exam techniques for the four papers (Reading and Use of English, Writing, Listening and Speaking). Participants are supported in their exam preparation using previous exams, with special attention paid to writing and speaking.
Although the course aims to prepare participants for the Cambridge exam, it can also be taken by those who seek to attain a very advanced level of English without the certificate. For further information on the CPE, please go to:

Internal exam: The Listening part of the internal exam will be held in the final course session. The written parts of the exam will be held on Friday, 15 December 2017 (14h00-15h30: Reading and Use of English). Room to be announced. All exam parts must be passed in order to receive ECTS.
