At Yumi, we are very proud of our unique exam practice and preparation classes for B2 and C1 levels in English. The classes are solely focused on developing revision and exam techniques, preparing students for exam day, and practising past paper exams with structure and expert guidance.
These classes differ from the B2 FIRST and C1 Advanced courses, in that they are specifically aimed at students who have already completed their chosen course and are expected to sit their exam within the next six months.
Alternatively, if you already have a high level of English, and don’t need to spend one or two years working through the course, or if you have previously taken the exam and failed by a small margin, these classes may be for you…
Some of the latest educational research in this field has concluded that practising past exams is the best way to prepare for a final examination. This is to do with the way in which the human brain works. When a learner or student retrieves information from their memory when applying it to a question or task, they are implementing and engaging in a process known as spaced retrieval practice.
The more often a student engages in this, the firmer the information becomes in memory. Another proven benefit is that by practising exams, students are alerted to topics and areas that they need to focus upon for improvement.
Yes! In fact, there are many. We have selected what we believe to be the most important below.
