As one of the world’s leading language training companies, Cactus is constantly developing new and innovative products and services. Its latest language offering, launched in Fall 2011, is an Exam Preparation course for German, Spanish and French learners.
The course has been specially designed to provide students with extra help ahead of exams and upon completion, they receive a certificate to fit the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR; https://www.coe.int/t/dg4/linguistic/CADRE_EN.asp). This is equivalent to the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) Proficiency Guidelines, and all certificates are recognized internationally by employers, universities and other educational bodies.
The key areas covered by the course are reading, writing, listening, speaking, grammar and vocabulary. With small class sizes and lessons taught by Cactus’ highly experienced teachers, students are able to learn quickly and effectively.
“Since I was learning German for fun, taking the Exam Preparation Course was an opportunity to receive certification for all the time spent so far”, says course participant Keri Ellis in New York. German teacher, Uschi Niethammer, adds: “All our students who took the exam in December passed with flying colours, which is a great achievement. We’re looking forward to working with our new students in 2012 and achieving ongoing success.”
The Spanish DELE A1 and DELE A2 as well as the French DELF A1 and DELF A2 certificates will enable holders to apply for employment and/or for university. Just as the German Start Deutsch 1 (A1) and Start Deutsch 2 (A2) certificates who will also be recognized when applying for permanent residency in Germany.
