At the end of your course, you receive a certificate describing the level of language competence you have reached. The certificate records your level on the Eurocentres Scale of Levels. As well as telling you your overall level, the certificate describes in detail your competence in Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing.

Together with your Eurocentres Certificate you receive a document with the descriptions for all the levels, together with an overview of how the Eurocentres Levels relate to the Common European Framework levels, which were developed by Eurocentres.

Your certificate is not just a souvenir of the course. It is a very useful document, which you can present to your employer or to a training institution.

The coherence of the links between presentation of new language and free practice in the realistic use of that language is one of the most significant signs of quality in a language course. It is the basis of the communicative approach.

This is why, in a Eurocentres course, we place such an emphasis on:

consultation and planning and on Framework activity
and on Experiential Learning assessment Monitoring Your success.

Your class teacher identifies your needs with you. The team of 2-3 teachers plans a programme integrating the language you are learning with the skills practice and activities you experience. A teacher – student consultation takes place every week and the lesson plans are presented each day. On a Eurocentres course we treat you as a partner. We make you feel at home and we help you concentrate and learn.
