Cambridge Exams in Marbella

More than 50 English teachers from local school and language academies attended a University of Cambridge ESOL seminar on the Young Learners Examination suite. Aloha College Marbella which hosted the meeting is the main venue for the English language examinations on the Costa del Sol.

Pictured are a group of teachers looking at the latest textbook and resources on display and available from the Cambridge publishing group.

Local Secretary for the Marbella Cambridge ESOL exams, Richard Hayes explained that the Young Learners Examinations are designed for children from 7 through to 12 who are not native speakers of English. He revealed that the exams are growing in popularity world wide and already account for 25% of the Cambridge ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) examinations in Spain.

More than 500 students on the Costa del Sol take one of the University of Cambridge English exams every year from YLE through to Proficiency of English at the highest level, where native English speaker level is expected. Most universities in Europe will give credits to students who have passed a Cambridge English exam, some from the Preliminary English Exam (PET) upwards.

Parents, students, schools, language academies in need of information, books, resources and advice on preparing students for Cambridge English exams are invited to contact the local examinations group.
