Eton Institute enhances quality standards by offering additional Cambridge English Exam Preparation Courses and Tests for different needs at different ages.

In today's globalized world English is the primary language in over 20 countries, however it is spoken in over 90 countries and often considered as the second language of business in the MENA region. Cambridge English exams are widely accepted as
internationally recognized proof of language ability, accelerating career growth and employment, as well as offering schooling, academic and relocation opportunities in English-speaking countries and almost anywhere else in the world. The Cambridge English tests are accepted by 15,000 universities, employees and governments globally. Annually, over 4 million people take the exams in 130 countries.

Eton Institute, the UAE's largest language and professional development training provider and approved testing center for Cambridge English exams, has significantly increased its Cambridge English language exam range, supporting standardized testing of English in educational establishments in the region.

"There are multiple benefits of a certificate of English language proficiency for individuals at any age. If you need to apply for a visa before traveling, working abroad or relocating to an English-speaking country, one of the common requirements is to prove
your knowledge of English. Not only does it aid the application process, it will also significantly enhance your chances of employment and career growth, as well as gearing up for entry into schools and aiding academic study," commented Sue Brett, Vice President Marketing and Business Development at Eton Institute. "According to Eton Institute's Language Development in the UAE Workforce Survey (September 2014), 89% of our clients stated that multilingual employees add value to the workforce and 88% stated that recruiting team members with language skills is important to their organization. Confidence in languages is key and we also offer language and exam preparation courses for our learners to ensure that they are prepared for wherever their future takes them," she added.

In addition to the YLE (Young Learners English) for children aged between 4 - 12 years old, and BULATS (Business Language Testing Service), Eton Institute now also offers the Key English Test (KET), a basic level qualification for maintaining simple conversation; the Preliminary English Test (PET) and First Certificate in English (FCE) to measure intermediate English language skills for work, study and travel; along with the Cambridge Advanced English (CAE) and Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) which prove a full

proficiency of the language. Finally, the Business English Certificates (BEC) are designed to give individuals practical skills to succeed in international business environments.
