Business English Certificate (BEC) Vantage

The preparation course for the BEC Vantage exam is recommended for candidates who have previously studied English at school and possess a good basic knowledge of the language.

BEC Vantage is equivalent to the FCE, but the material is business baised. The course is geared to prepare candidates for the four examination papers: - Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking.

In addition to preparing candidates for the BEC Vantage examination, this course provides students with an opportunity to extend their knowledge of English and their ability to use the language in a variety of everyday business situations.
