Cambridge Advanced preparation classes

At FunTalk we offer courses totally focused on the preparation of the Advanced English language exam, which is equivalent to level C1 according to the European Framework. These courses are aimed at adolescents in secondary school and high school, as well as adults. Our methodology is based on learning by doing, dealing with topics of interest and real life situations. The groups will be formed based on the level of the students, so that everyone can feel comfortable and go at a pace according to their needs. There are a myriad of whys and wherefores when we consider preparing for an official certification of our level of English. The most obvious ones are for work and/or academic purposes, but we must not forget other advantages that we will obtain by preparing ourselves for this advanced level of English, such as traveling, understanding any native speaker perfectly and being able to have a conversation with a full and rich vocabulary. Knowing and having the will to learn another language at an advanced level will also allow us to learn more about the Anglo-Saxon culture and gain greater self-confidence, seeing that we are able to express ourselves in a natural and fluent way.

At FunTalk, we differentiate ourselves from other English schools and academies by offering the following advantages to our students:

– Levels and class rhythms adapted to the needs of each individual.

– Small groups of 8 people maximum.

– Fully competitive and adjusted prices in the center of Barcelona.

– Native or bilingual teachers.

– Adequate facilities for integration during the course of activities.

– Appropriate learning pace adapted to the group.

All about Funtalk Advanced Preparation Classes

Do you need to obtain the official C1 English certificate?

At FunTalk we are experts in preparing for the official Cambridge exams and we know perfectly how this type of exams are and which are the parts that need to be worked on the most. Naturally, this is a course that aims at achieving the official Advanced Certificate (CAE), with a satisfactory result. In this type of exams, 4 different areas of the English language are evaluated: reading comprehension and use of english, written expression, listening comprehension and, finally, oral expression. These parts are the same as the First Certificate and Proficiency exams, but with a different level of difficulty. In each of the classes we will work on these four parts and we will put special focus on those in which you have more difficulties. Remember that no one has to take the official exam on the same day, so everyone can go at the pace set by his or her needs and level. One of the great advantages of working with small groups is that interaction is encouraged, speaking skills can be practiced in a much more practical way, and the school’s teachers can offer a fully personalized service tailored to each student.

Detailed schedules of the C1 preparation courses

The preparatory courses for the official C1 exam have time slots designed so that anyone can attend and combine it with their studies, work and other responsibilities. We offer courses of 2 and 3.5 hours per week, as well as 6 hours in the intensive version. It is recommended that you sign up for more or less hours depending on your time availability and, of course, the objective you have set for yourself.

Frequently asked questions about the Advanced preparation course:

What is assessed in the official Advanced exam?

The official C1 level English exam assesses four different areas: listening comprehension, reading comprehension, written expression and the use of english and reading comprehension. In the FunTalk preparation courses, we will focus on working on each and every one of these areas in order to successfully pass the exam.

The Advanced preparation schedules can be consulted on this page. We have selected different time slots so that everyone can combine them. You can choose from three different timetable proposals, with their respective time slots: one class of two hours per week, two classes of one and a half hours per week, or an intensive of 6 hours per week divided into 2-hour classes.

What benefits will I obtain by passing the CAE?

The CAE and, in general, any other English degree can help you obtain a university degree or spend a semester at a foreign university, as well as open many doors in the workplace. You should be aware that, increasingly, English has become an almost indispensable language in all jobs, so obtaining a certification will give you a competitive advantage over other candidates. In addition, any English language qualification will help you to have sufficient knowledge of the language to be able to engage in conversation and travel.
