Live Language provides preparation classes for the internationally recognised First Certificate in English (FCE) and Cambridge Advanced Exam (CAE). The exams are widely accepted across Europe and internationally as proof of your level of English and can help you gain employment.

The courses are most suitable for students who need the strategies and techniques for the Cambridge exam but who also require additional practice with their General English skills. The courses use engaging materials and follow communicative methodologies to ensure you have the maximum amount of time to practise and improve your English language skills.
These communicative FCE and CAE exam courses will focus on the five areas of the FCE or CAE exams. The classes are based on lively topics which engage students in real life situations while developing exam techniques. Each lesson will allow students to practise and improve their speaking, writing, reading and listening and develop grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. The FCE and CAE exam classes follow a core textbook with supplementary materials to suit the needs of the group. Materials include laptops, DVDs, CDs, newspaper & magazine articles. Exam type tasks are given as homework and student progress is also monitored through class performance. You receive extended support and advice from tutors.

The course
These summer courses (CAE/FCE) are ideal for those students visiting Glasgow for a short time but who wish to have a challenging learning experience while enjoying a holiday. The classes are suitable for those who are intending on sitting for the exam or people who require a more demanding course. The stimulating syllabus prepares you for all aspects of the exam while continuing to develop grammar and vocabulary skills. All classes allow you the maximum time to practise your English, meaning that you can maximise the benefit of the course while living in a native English-speaking environment.

Testing and Assessment
You will be continually assessed on your performance in the classroom you will have the chance to practise with exam papers each week. Homework is given on a daily basis. You receive feedback and advice from your tutor on this work.
Tutorials are also carried out each month and give you feedback regarding your areas of strength and weakness. In addition, tutorials are an opportunity to discuss academic goals, pastoral needs and level progression on a one-to-one basis with your tutor.
