Should I do a business (BEC) or a general (CAE, FCE) course/exam?
Both Business and General exams are divided into sections worth equal scores (25%) for reading, writing, listening and speaking.
Both Business and general English exams allow you to achieve an internationally recognised certification according to the European frame of reference: A2 – C2 proficiency.
Business English Exam: Is best for individuals who want specific vocabulary for business. For example, you will talk about graphs, write reports, discuss company structure, stocks and shares, etc.
General English Exam: Is best for individuals who want a wider variety of English vocabulary not business related. You will not cover specific business topics, but instead discuss topics such as family, holidays, hobbies etc.
