In my life I have had many valuable experiences; traveling, volunteering, working and spending time with new people. What I have noticed is that to continue growing as I hope, I need to have a proven level in English. For me it is important to have a certificate that stands out from the rest, is accurate and leaves a lasting impression on schools and employers. This is exactly what the C1 Advanced does – it makes you stand out from the crowd.
I never really took English seriously in middle school or high school, but once I started university I realised what a big mistake I had made. I spoke well and could understand more than my classmates, but they were doing better than I was in exams and had started teaching at some well-known schools in my area. I thought “I have to change this now!”. I went to my nearest preparation centre and started preparing for C1 Advanced. Ever since then things have been going great – I have worked with Cambridge ESOL as an oral examiner, exams officer, teacher trainer, and now I am working happily as an English Co-ordinator at a school that I love with a system that I designed around Cambridge ESOL. Personally, I know I would not be where I am today if it were not for my first experience with C1 Advanced, which gave me the initiative to continue developing within the ESOL community.
I have lived the difference between a teacher who knows the language and a teacher who is certified in a language. So if you are thinking about taking the exam, I have one recommendation for you – do it! There is no reason not to and over a million reasons why! Make an investment in your future!
