What Are the Different Cambridge Certifications?
They are clearly incorporated in the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
In the 80s, at the European Council, all the components for the Association for Linguistic Evaluations in Europe met to establish the linguistic levels for the main languages within Europe.
This organisation is composed of the University of Cambridge, the Goethe Institute in Germany, the Alliance Française in France, the Dante Institute in Italy, and the Cervantes Institute in Spain.
After this meeting they published the different levels for linguistic competence: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2.
The equivalent levels in the Cambridge exams agreed by the association are: Movers, Flyers/KET, PET, FCE, CAE, CPE.
The University of Cambridge with these official levels, gives their exams a unique value of prestige and reliability that other linguistic certifications don´t have.
The Cambridge certificates don´t expire, there are for life. They are designed for you to develop and progress in all aspects of the language.
If you do them from the lowest levels, bit by bit you will be able to consolidate your skills and therefore be able to sit higher exams.
