Every teacher is very kind and helpful. They taught me that when I am confident in myself I can speak English very well. I met many friends who message me on Instagram in English, so it's good practice!

Before I came to Bell, I couldn't speak English. After 5 months, I can use English and I'm improving every day. I've never experienced lessons like this, they are interactive and feature lots of fun activities.

Course overview

On this course, you will:

  • Improve your pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar structures
  • Learn to communicate effectively with others, express opinions and present arguments
  • Develop concise and purposeful writing techniques with logical structure
  • Critically analyse different media and understand meaning and different points of view
  • Gain effective techniques and strategies to tackle different types of questions

Preparing to succeed.

The best way to prepare for the exam is to understand what content and structure to expect and master the critical skills you need to tackle these questions.

However, practising on example tests is not enough to help you perform really well. Our teachers have extensive knowledge of Cambridge English exams. They will develop a personal study plan to help you strengthen your abilities across your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills – so you have the best change of achieving your goal.
