In order to keep everybody safe, do not come to our school if you have any symptoms or have had a chance of exposure to Covid.

Do you need to take the Cambridge Business Exam (BEC)? Than Kickstart School’s Cambridge English: Business Exam (BEC) Preparation Course will provide the intensive exam training to prepare you for the exams, either at Vantage (B2) or Higher (C1) level. These exams help you develop practical skills for use in international business environments and are accepted as an official language qualification by business organisations worldwide (to check a particular institution’s requirements, see the Cambridge English website). This certification does not expire.

A strong B2 or C1 level is required to enrol in this course as it provides intensive exam training only for the Vantage or Higher level, respectively. If you need to develop and strengthen your language skills first, you should also enrol in Kickstart School’s Upper-Intermediate/Advanced Business English Course. This course is offered as a private course.

You will be tested before the start of the course in order to assess their level.

Trainers on Cambridge examination courses are all native-speakers who are qualified and experienced in teaching candidates to take the Cambridge exams.
