|Cambridge English examinations|
|The most valuable English qualifications in the world|
Cambridge English Language Assessment offers a wide range of internationally recognised English language qualifications including specialised examinations in business English and English for young learners as well as certificates for language teachers. Around the world, thousands of universities, employers and government ministries rely on Cambridge English certificates as proof of English language ability.
Cambridge English examinations have a long-established and well-deserved reputation for excellence. Over 5 million people in 130 countries take the exams every year: It is essential to the quality of the exams and the continued reputation of Cambridge English, that each one of those candidates experiences a test that consistently meets the high standards set. The exams are specifically designed to be fair to all test takers, whatever their age, gender, nationality, first language, culture or ethnic background.
The exams are linked to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), published by the Council of Europe, making simple for employers, universities and other organisations to specify levels of language ability and easy for learners to choose the right exam.
Cambridge English Language Assessment was one of the organisations involved in the early development of this language benchmark, wich is used internationally to describe language ability. Cambridge English remains at the hearth of the development of the CEFR through being a key partner in English Profile, a research programme that will further develop the CEFR, providing detailed descriptions of learner English at each of the six levels.
