Common mistakes at First Certificate and how to avoid them

The FCE certification, known as First Certificate in English, or Cambridge English: First, is widely known across the world, especially at the European level, and represents an intermediate skill level in spoken and written English. Typically this is the expected level for students towards the end of secondary school, or even for independent learners who’ve been studying English at home.

This type of certificate is also recognised in foreign countries, and could even come in handy if you’re applying for a scholarship in an English-speaking country, leading to a very enriching, once-in-a-lifetime experience.
