Are you thinking of signing up for an exam preparation class? In this post we'll explain how the courses work, what level you should be and why it's worth doing one of these courses with Kreis 6 English.
How the courses work
In the ten lessons, you'll be introduced to all parts of the exam, Reading and Use of English, Writing, Speaking and Listening. You will practice each part of the exam and will learn appropriate strategies to help you achieve a good result. Through self-reflection and guidance from the teacher, you'll discover the strategies that work for you.
What level should I be?
The courses focus on exam technique. At the start of the course you should have a solid knowledge of the grammar and vocabulary needed for the exam since there will only be a limited amount of time to teach these things. If you think your level might be slightly low, make sure you have enough time during or after the course to do some extra study before taking the exam. We can provide tips and book recommendations to enable you to do this effectively.
