Course description

A Cambridge English: Preliminary (PET) qualification shows that you have mastered the basics of English and now have practical language skills for everyday use. 
This exam is the logical step in your English language learning journey between Cambridge English: Key (KET) and Cambridge English: First (FCE). In our Cambridge PET preparation course you will learn about how the exam works, what the examiners will be looking for and you will get plenty of practice using the types of questions you will see in the exam. Be assured that after your course you can tackle the exam with complete confidence! It’s not an empty promise – all our British teachers are CELTA qualified and very experienced, and some of them are Cambridge examiners.
