This course is designed to help you prepare yourself for the Cambridge English First (FCE) B2 level English exam. This is a globally recognised language exam – accepted by lots of education and work institutions around the world!

I go through each part of this paper giving you the best advice on how to answer the questions, so hopefully it won't be necessary for you to spend lots of extra money on lessons.
