Cambridge Certificates are official, globally recognised certificates in English.
Wageningen in’to Languages organises courses that prepare students for:
- Cambridge Preliminary
- Cambridge First
- Cambridge Advanced
- Cambridge Proficiency
Classes take place on the Wageningen University & Research Campus, in the Forum building.
These courses are suitable for anyone who needs to speak English at a professional level, such as students and teachers involved in English-language degree programmes.
- Cambridge Preliminary: B1
- Cambridge First: B2
- Cambridge Advanced: C1
- Cambridge Proficiency: C2
The courses focus on functional language use. All skills are developed:
The reading texts are taken from sources such as newspapers, information leaflets, letters and magazines. Writing assignments might involve formal and informal letters, brochures, articles, memos and reports. The listening and speaking tasks are equally varied and are inspired by current events and situations.
The courses consist of 16 classes of 2 hours. In addition to the classes, you will be expected to spend 2 to 4 hours on self-study each week.
