When learning languages, it is important to give oneself goals. Passing an official examination is an excellent objective. Established in French-speaking Switzerland since 2012, The Language Center has successfully trained students to pass examinations. We can help you prepare for the following exams:
Cambridge Assessment English
A2 Key: This basic-level qualification is a great exam to take if you’re new to learning English. An A2 Key qualification is proof of your ability to use English to communicate in simple situations.
B1 Preliminary & B1 Business Preliminary: A B1 qualification shows that you have mastered the basics of English and now have practical language skills for everyday use in your personal or professional life.
B2 First & B2 Business Vantage: A B2 qualification proves you have the language skills to live and work independently in an English-speaking country or study on courses taught in English.
C1 Advanced & C1 Business Higher: It is the in-depth, high-level qualification that shows you have the language skills that employers and universities are looking for.
C2 Proficiency: A C2 Proficiency qualification shows the world that you have mastered English to an exceptional level. It proves you can communicate with the fluency and sophistication of a highly competent English speaker.
Children and teenagers
Pre A1 Starters: It is the start of a child’s language learning journey and it introduces children to everyday written and spoken English, an excellent way for them to gain confidence and improve their English.
A1 Movers: Children will work towards understanding basic instructions or taking part in simple conversations, completing basic forms and writing notes, including times, dates and places. The A1 Movers is for children in primary or secondary schools (6-15 years old) and corresponds to an A1 level expected at the end of the “6ème” (11-12 years old).
A2 Flyers: It is the third of the fun, activity-based English tests for children in primary or secondary schools (6-15 years old) and corresponds to an A2 level expected at the end of “3ème”.
A2 Key for Schools: It is an exam for school-age learners which will help prepare them for higher-level English language qualifications. These tests are suitable for children leaving secondary school (at the end of “3ème”) and show that they can use English to communicate in simple situations.
B1 Preliminary for Schools: A B1 Preliminary for Schools qualification shows that a student has mastered the basics of English and now has practical language skills for everyday use, expected at the end of the first year of high school (“Seconde Générale”).
