Introduction to Examination Courses
On the first day, you are given a comprehensive test to identify your exact level. You are then placed in a class of students at your level, all preparing for the same examination. For some Cambridge exams, there may be several “micro-levels”, each at a slightly different level from the others, and ranging from ‘C’ to ‘A’ grade expectations.
Your course will build your confidence and accuracy in all forms of the language. You will receive extensive training in examination techniques, and sit one mock examination on most courses on the core programme. Your speaking abilities will be personally assessed by senior members of the teaching staff on most courses.
Our partner school, BEET, has Cambridge examiners on the teaching staff. You can, therefore, be assured that we have precise knowledge of the requirements and thinking of the University’s examining board. The examiners, however, do not know what will be in your particular examination!
Our partner school BEET is a major centre of Cambridge Examination Courses, producing excellent results.
Cambridge exams - Explained
First Certificate of English
This is a widely accepted English qualification, and usually the most popular examination course offered by BEET.
Certificate in Advanced English
An extremely popular examination course. The Advanced English is a high level final qualification in English, most suited to those needing a good command of English at work or socially.
Certificate of Proficiency in English
This is the most advanced English language examination for which we prepare students. It can be used for university entrance, or for joining such professions as teaching, diplomacy or translating. It is also of value to those entering such careers as law and media.
The core English course is based on the four language skills: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing.
Emphasis is placed on encouraging your fluency and confidence in the language. Your teachers will employ the most efficient techniques to ensure you develop accurate grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.
You will be in a multi-national class, placed with other students of the same level with the same high motivation. The aim is to ensure you learn the maximum possible.
Some of your lessons will be in the computer room, where you can use computers with interactive software and broadband connection.
All courses include unlimited access to 'beet on-line', course books, student file and paper, map of Bournemouth, Student Guide, student identity card and a full social programme including 2 evening lectures per week.
Our partner school uses the latest course books and materials. The school Principal has written many leading titles and even received an award from the Duke of Edinburgh for one of his books. This commitment to excellence in materials continues to this day - we use the latest course books and provide them free as part of your main course.
A Varied Programme
Normally, you have two to four teachers each day, depending on which course you have chosen. This gives you the chance to experience a variety of approaches to the language. This variation is further expanded through use of audio, audiovisual equipment and computers.
You will learn real English, as it is used in the world outside the classroom. The aim is to bring you as near to native competence as possible.
There are regular tests to monitor your progress in grammar, vocabulary and the four main skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing.
