Cambridge B1 Level Preliminary, 13 week part-time Course, Autumn 2021 


What is Cambridge B1 Preliminary?

  • Intermediate level qualification

  • The Cambridge B1 Preliminary (PET) is suitable for learners with a lower intermediate level of English, and it demonstrates that you have now mastered the basics of English language communication.

  • You can do things such as take part in simple conversations across a range of subject areas, read simple articles or reports, and write letters and emails on everyday subjects.

  • At Richmond English School, most of our students tend to use Cambridge PET as a step towards moving up to a Cambridge B2 First class.
