Being a Primary School Teacher myself, and also after having lived abroad and worked in TEFL too, I have seen this course totally essential as it covers very specific strategies for the CPE C2 exam. I genuinely recommend everyone to take this course. I am having my exam tomorrow. Even though it´s nerve-wracking I feel confident I´ll do my best with the strategies I have been given. Wish me luck! Thank you so much!

I decided to prepare by myself for my upcoming CAE and found Ben on YouTube. I found this course to be tremendously helpful and enjoyed it a lot. What stood out the most to me was, that beyond giving all the relevant and necessary information about the structure of the exam, Ben shared incredible tips on how to approach each part. He'll encourage you to find your own way of completing each task, offering several strategies, because, well, people are different, right? Whenever I reached out with a question he responded super quickly and thoroughly. Thank you so much, Ben, can't wait to share my results with you!

This course is really a must for everyone who wants to learn English correctly. In my opinion it was very helpful that Ben started every module with the essential grammar to repeat and then moves on to the more difficult parts. Everything is explained well and with a lot of examples understandable at once. The best grammar course I've ever seen It helped me a lot, because I learned English twenty years ago and I didn't really understand all of the grammatical structures. That changed thanks to Ben. I would highly recommend that course to everyone who needs refreshing in English Grammar. Thanks for this fantastic work!!! Sabine from Germany
