Cambridge C1 Advanced Exam Preparation

About the Cambridge C1 Advanced Exam

C1 Advanced is an in-depth, high-level qualification that shows you have the language skills that employers and universities are looking for. Like the IELTS and TOEFL exams, the C1 Advanced exam can be used as proof that your English is good enough for entry to university to study a course delivered in English. More than 9,000 educational institutions, businesses and government departments around the world accept C1 Advanced as proof of high-level achievement in learning English. Preparing for C1 Advanced helps learners develop the skills to make the most of studying, working, and living in English-speaking countries.

Aim

Taught by a C1 Advanced speaking examiner with in-depth knowledge of the C1 Advanced exam, the aim of this course is to familiarise participants with the various parts of the C1 Advanced exam and to provide them with all the necessary skills to do well in the exam.

Placement Test and Estimated Extent of the Preparation

Before the course begins, all participants are required to take the Oxford Placement Test to assess their level of English. Depending on the level obtained in the test, we will discuss the expected number of classes necessary to pass the exam. The instructor will use the results of the test to plan the teaching and meet the needs of the participants.

Content

The course will address the following five separate exams that make up the C1 Advanced: Reading, Use of English, Writing, Listening, and Speaking. We will examine the structure of each section and the types of questions contained within them, so that the participants acquire the necessary skills to master each section. Participants will have the opportunity to complete exercises and practice tests during the course so they become thoroughly familiar with the exam, what they are expected to do, and the best strategies for each part to maximise their chances of passing. We will also discuss relevant supporting skills, including exam time management, what to expect on the day of the exam, the software used for the computer-based exam, and address grammatical and lexical issues as they arise.

Participants will be invited to submit three essays – designed to prepare them for the different writing exam questions in the exam – for which they will receive detailed personal feedback from the instructor.

Number of Participants

We recommend a maximum of 6 participants per class, but if you prefer to be the only student, it is also possible. Being the sole participant will give you more personal attention from your teacher and greater flexibility regarding the number of classes, and when and where they are to take place.

Instructors

The course is taught by a native English language instructor who is also a speaking examiner for the C1 Advanced, C2 Proficiency, B2 First and B1 Preliminary exams.

All course material will be provided by AIS Sprog.
