“BEC has taught me to converse confidently for presentations and establishing my viewpoint, which was a weakness to me before. However, it has also made me to portray myself better at workplace which I believe will provide the opportunity for professional and personal advancement and respect amongst my peers in the corporate world. Apart from that, this course has improved my communication skills allowing me to express fluently in both written and oral form of language. This is essential for one’s professional growth, as it is considered one of the main areas significant by the prospective employers.”

“Monsanto Argentina is using the BULATS diagnostic test to evaluate the language level of candidates applying to work at the company. Taking into account the different steps in the recruiting and selection process we use at Monsanto, the possibility of having one of these online is a great advantage as it reduces the times and the meetings involved in the process. For these reasons, I find the Cambridge BULATS service to be excellent in terms of efficiency and the actual time taken during the selection process.”
