Dialogue is a registered centre with Cambridge English Language Assessment. As such, we can prepare learners for and offer exams on a more flexible basis than many other centres. Exams can take place either at our Swindon site or at the learner's office location, and we can schedule them for a date/time to suit the individual learner/s schedule.
Cambridge English Language Assessment, being one of the founders of the Association of Language Testers in Europe, aligns all of its exams to the CEFR system of ‘can-do’ definitions. These exams assess true competence and require extensive preparation.
More specifically, the exams we run from the Cambridge suite for General and Academic English are:
- Key (KET)
- Preliminary (PET) – this is the standard exam used by the UK Home Office for Visa and Citizenship
- First (FCE)
- Advanced (CAE)
- Proficiency (CPE)
For Business, we offer
- Business (BEC Preliminary)
- Business (BEC Vantage)
- Business (BEC Higher)
In addition we prepare people for the Cambridge IELTS exam, increasingly used by Higher education establishments for entry onto, for example, MBA courses.
The TOEIC test provides a snapshot of a candidate’s level in English on a given day, requires minimal preparation and can be sat as a paper test or computer test. Many companies in and outside Europe use this test as a quick way to assess the level of English.
