Preparation for Certificates

For those of you who want to improve your language skills or simply determine a concrete goal for your language learning, we offer preparatory courses for language certificates. Language certificates and exams are usually valid for the rest of your life. They are also an integral way of verifying your knowledge of a foreign language in many situations in life (for example –a new job or career, travelling to a foreign country, studying at a foreign school, MBA studies, etc.). Together with the preparatory course, we also offer to undertake all administrative affairs connected with the exam, including the payment, the application form and trial tests. European language certificates follow the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, which is commonly used in companies around the world and state administration. We have many years of experience with preparation for the following exams:
  • IELTS – for studying or working in the EU
  • Business English exams (BEC Preliminary / Vantage / Higher) – for employees of international companies
  • Cambridge exams (PET / KET / FCE / CAE / CPE) – for both secondary school students and adults
  • SAT – for studying in the USA
  • TOEFL – for studying in the USA or for studying MBA programs
  • Specialized certificates (Finance English – ICFE, Legal English – ILEC) – for specialists in the field
  • State graduation from English, German, French, Russian, or Spanish
  • Preparatory courses for graduation exams (Czech, Mathematics, etc.)

See below for an overview of the most common exams in individual languages, available in the Czech Republic.
