The Academy is an examination preparation center officially recognised by Cambridge English. For this reason, we offer official preparation courses for any Cambridge exam.
In the case of children and young people, we offer preparatory courses for the Young Learners, KET, PET, First (FCE) and Advanced (CAE) exams.
Cambridge English Young Learners:
These exams help children to know and learn the English language, and to demonstrate what they know and to obtain official certificates that recognize their level of English from the first moment. We consider them to be the best tool to motivate children to improve themselves every day.
Young Learners is a set of motivational tests made up of activities specially designed for elementary and high school students. Thanks to these exams, each student’s progress in English can be checked according to internationally recognized standards.
The exams cover real-life situations that bring learning closer and allow it to be applied to everyday life. They are composed of close and interesting topics, which are designed to develop the skills that children need to communicate in English.
There are three different level tests – Starters, Movers, Flyers – that will help children follow a clearly defined path to progress in learning English.
– The Starters test corresponds to a beginner’s level.
– The Movers test corresponds to level A1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)
– The Flyers exam corresponds to CEFR level A2.
Once students reach a higher level than that assessed in these exams, they can pass to the rest of the Cambridge exams.
Cambridge English: KET, PET, FCE
These are the best known Cambridge exams.
-First For Schools (FCE For Schools): This is a level B2 exam, which corresponds to an upper-intermediate level of English, and covers the four language skills as well as knowledge of grammar and vocabulary. The subject matter of the texts that appear on the exam, as well as the vocabulary, are adapted to come closer to the type of student who takes this exam: the teenage student.
-PET For Schools: This exam corresponds to an intermediate level, a B1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Like the other Cambridge exams, it evaluates the four language skills as well as grammar and vocabulary, always adapted to the ages of the students taking this exam.
-KET For Schools: In this case it is evaluated at level A2 of the CEFR. This is a pre-intermediate level. The four language skills adapted to the pre-intermediate level and to the ages of the teenage student taking this exam are also assessed.
The Academy Palma conducts official preparation courses for all these exams. We offer individual and small group courses to ensure that children are well prepared and can achieve the best results in all their official exams.
