As a small and friendly team, teachers are in close contact with each other as well as the wider Academic and Student Services teams to ensure that each student is satisfied with their course and progression within it.

Let’s take a look at the C1 Advanced course at CSC:

What does the study of C1 Advanced (formerly Cambridge English: Advanced or CAE) involve?

The study of C1 Advanced involves developing an understanding of its high-level exam structure and content by paying close attention to its component Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening sections. By practicing each section through past papers, exercises, and identifying individuals’ strengths and weaknesses, students master the timing and approach for exam success, and so develop confidence across all sections. 

Why is it important to study C1 Advanced?

It is important to study C1 Advanced as gaining the qualification provides widely-recognised proof of high-level English language skills for various institutions, employers and further education providers. Such dedicated study also demonstrates commitment, understanding and reliability, which will also prove important qualities in students’ future endeavours.

What do students enjoy most about studying C1 Advanced at Cambridge Seminars College?

Students enjoy the accessible, flexible and varied approach to teaching and learning provided by Cambridge Seminars College. Whilst dedicating due time and attention to the formalities of the exam, students enjoy that lessons remain interesting and stimulating at CSC. A variety of content and approaches are adopted to ensure students’ sustained interest, as well as exam success.

What types of courses do people take who study C1 Advanced?

Here at CSC we are able to provide a course specifically dedicated to the study of C1 Advanced either 1-2-1 or in small groups so there is no need to take separate courses. It is also possible for students to supplement their learning at the college by taking additional EFL lessons available at various levels.
