Your exam day minute-by-minute. What to bring, how to prepare.
Do you want to hit the road?
Or you simply want to follow your dreams at home? Whatever you want to be or do, wherever you imagine your career, you will surely need language and communication skills, as well as the right qualifications.
If you wish to develop your skills to be able to use them effectively in real life and you also want to pass your language exam, preparing for the Euroexams offers you both. After all, they measure real-life skills, like your ability to write an application to a university, complain in a shop about a broken mobile phone, have a sophisticated conversation with foreign friends or find relevant information in a text. The key to successful communication is how well you can express yourself both in content and style, and how well you can understand your partner.
That is why, in the Euroexams, you will find everyday situations, problems and communication needs, while the Assessment Criteria reflect this practical, communicative approach, as well. Accuracy is important, but we put greater emphasis on successful communication.
As early as 2001, the Euroexams adopted the Common European Framework (the standard for designing language courses, exams, as well as language tests all over Europe) as the foundation for its new exams. Thus, the Euroexams was the first international examination system for which the specification of levels, the exam tasks, the breakdown of certificate results, and even the coursebooks and preparation materials all directly corresponded to the new European standard detailed in the Framework.
If you want to prepare as well as possible...
One of the main advantages of the Euroexams is that you can prepare and test yourself with a range of exam preparation tools before the day of the exam. You will find e.g. free, downloadable practice exams and preparation tips for the Writing and Speaking tests.
Since you are allowed to use any printed dictionary during each section of the exam, you may find a selection of extremely practical tips on how to use your dictionary - or dictionaries - effectively.
If you want an award-winning exam...
The Euroexam Centre has been twice awarded the European Committee’s prestigious European Language Label award. First in 2002 for the modern and practical approach of its newly developed exams and in 2011 for the innovative elearning exam preparation course.
