English for Exams: Cambridge and IELTS Exam preparation

Cambridge English

Cambridge English exams are recognised around the world by universities, employers and national education authorities. Prepare for them with an IH London Cambridge Preparation course.

Annually, nearly 1.5 million people take a Cambridge exam to improve their employment prospects, seek further education and prepare for international travel or living abroad.

International House London provides you with Cambridge English Exam preparation courses for the B2 First (FCE), C1 Advanced (CAE) and C2 Proficiency (CPE) exams.

Our Cambridge Exam preparation courses focus on exam techniques and strategies. Courses are designed around your needs and requirements.

With careful attention and support from your experienced teacher you can choose to prioritise the areas you want to work on from speaking, grammar, listening, vocabulary, writing and reading. 


IELTS is recognised as an entrance requirement by most British, Australian, New Zealand and Canadian universities. IELTS is also recognised by many employers and government immigration agencies as a proof of English skills. 

An IH London IELTS preparation course will help you get the results you need for the Cambridge International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination.

IELTS preparation courses are made up of intensive lessons focusing on the academic skills - reading, listening, speaking and writing English - needed to gain the results you need from the IELTS test.
