A focused, 50–60 hour course for the revised Cambridge English: First (FCE) for Schools exam from 2015.

The course is designed to maximise the performance of school-age learners. It features eight units covering the core topics, vocabulary, grammar and skills needed for all four exam papers for the revised Cambridge English: First (FCE) for Schools exam from 2015. Two teen-inspired topics in each unit ensure the entire exam syllabus is covered, and can also act as a basis for CLIL-based extension activities and projects. Grammar sections and a Grammar Reference help students build up the accurate language structure necessary for the Use of English parts of the new Reading and Use of English paper, while B2-level vocabulary is targeted, drawing on insights from English Profile, and brought together in a Wordlist based on key vocabulary from the units. ‘Exam tips’, and grammar and vocabulary exercises teach students to avoid common mistakes identified in Cambridge’s unique collection of real exam papers, the Cambridge Learner Corpus.
