Do I have the right level?
The first step is to do our online test. After that you will have a little chat with Tamara Leacy, our Director of Studies, and she will be able to tell you which of the levels above you should start from. If you are not ready yet, we will prepare a package for you to help you achieve the required level before you start your preparation course.
