At The Language Institute we offer 2 ways to study for the Cambridge exams – Full time and Part time.


The full time FCE, CAE and CPE courses combine 15 hours of general English language in the mornings with 7.5 hours of specific exam preparation in the afternoons.

In the mornings you will have an opportunity to improve your knowledge of grammar and vocabulary, both essential for those wishing to gain one the Cambridge exam certificates.

In the afternoon lessons you will focus on the exam doing lots of exam practice including past papers and mock exams.

You can choose how many weeks you would like to study but we recommend a minimum of 4 weeks.


If you do not have time to do a full time course we also offer the possibility of attending only the 7.5 hours of lessons in the afternoon which focus on the exam.

Of course we recommend the full time course but if you can only do the part time course your teacher will make sure you get lots of homework so that you benefit as much as possible from your studies.
