first certificate

 

 

Corresponde a un nivel B2 de Inglés

El First Certificate de Cambridge,  es un título de nivel intermedio-alto, demuestra que puedes utilizar el inglés cotidiano escrito y hablado con fines laborales o educativos y  certifica que tienes un nivel B2 según el Marco de Referencia de Marco común europeo de referencia para las lenguas.
Este título hoy en dia es imprescindible, pues cada vez mas se está pidiendo en las empresas y para optar a la mayoría de puestos de trabajo, oposiciones etc..

 

¿Que necesitas para poder obtener el First Certificate, nivel B2 de inglés?

El primer paso es establecer  que conocimientos reales tienes de inglés, no solo gramaticales sino también a nivel oral, (speaking y listening) así como conocer tu nivel a nivel escrito,  ya que el  examen del First Certificate te va a evaluar en las cuatro destrezas: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Use of English y Writing.

Una vez conozcamos que nivel tienes en cada una de ellas,  podremos orientarte hacia que  curso de preparación del First Certificate  es el más conveniente para ti, ya que tan importante es el objetivo que tengas (alcanzar un nivel B2) como el punto de partida (tu nivel real de inglés). No serviría de nada matricularte en un curso de nivel B2 si tu nivel es inferior, ya que sobretodo en los speaking y en los listening, te verías muy por debajo de la media, no entenderías nada, te desmotivarías y al final abandonarías sin haber alcanzado ni el nivel deseado, ni haber progresado.

De igual forma, si te matriculas en un curso en el tu tienes más nivel que el resto, vas a perder tiempo, y no vas a progresar lo rápido que podrías. En BRITTANY SCHOOL queremos que tu progreso sea máximo, porque se trata de que aprendas lo máximo en el menor tiempo posible.

Por eso  en BRITTANY SCHOOL tenemos varios cursos preparatorios para el First Certificate pero clasificados por niveles, porque si partes de tu nivel real, el progreso sí va a ser real, tu mismo vas a notar los progresos, te vas a motivar, y al final si alcanzarás el nivel deseado. voy por aqui

No lo pienses más, lláma ahora y pide una prueba de nivel a ver cual de los cursos que tenemos de preparación para el First Certificate es el que tu necesitas. Es totalmente gratuita.
