ORGANISATION OF OFFICIAL
EXAMS FOR OVER
Is a recently created co-operative society. However, its members have been involved in the running and organisation of official exams for over 20 years. LTS offers the full range of University of Cambridge ESOL exams from Young Learners to Proficiency. At the moment these exams can be taken in March, June and December, at our venues in Donostia-San Sebastian, Zarautz, Zumarraga-Urretxu and Bilbao.
As of October 2013 we will be offering Computer Based FCE exam sessions in San Sebastian, which will radically increase exam availability.
LTS, following directions from Cambridge ESOL, is actively involved in providing training for teachers in order to improve the quality of English language instruction in the Basque Country. We hold regular seminars run by University of Cambridge instructors to help teachers prepare their students for ESOL exams. Courses are also organised for those teachers who wish to take the University of Cambridge’s Teaching Knowledge Test.
In Summer 2014 we are running our CELTA course for local and international teachers. Thereby giving teachers in the Basque Country the opportunity of obtaining this important English language teaching qualification without the expense involved of having to take the course in Barcelona, Madrid or London.
WHAT TO DO
The elt conference will be held at the palacio miramar. The miramar palace is a late 19th-century palace located on the la concha bay of the city of san sebastián, basque country, spain. It was built in 1893 commissioned by the spanish royal family, based on an 1889 project by english architect selden wornum. You can take an online tour of the miramar palace at this link.
We are working with hotels and restaurants to obtain special discounts for those attending the elt conference.
