Spoken English

There are eight LCM Spoken English grades, plus three introductory levels and three stages of individual/group early learning.

After a recent review of the ESOL syllabus there have been some amendments which will come into effect from the Winter session 2017.

These changes have been prompted by the need to reinforce the spoken nature of the qualifications in the market place and to streamline the syllabus. These updated qualifications will now be regulated by the relevant regulatory bodies and the changes are as follows:

  1. The examination will be called Spoken English (Speaking and Presenting in English)
  2. The Single and Double Awards have been replaced with Awards – a single qualification in which the candidate completes all four components and receives one certificate
  3. The preparation section has been extracted from the syllabus and added to the Guidelines For Teachers available here

No components in the exams themselves have been changed; their aim and nature is the same, so teachers do not have to change the way that they prepare their candidates.
