The winner of the 2018 Junior Eurovision Song Contest has passed a Cambridge English Qualification. Polish pop sensation Roksana ‘Roxie’ Wegiel recently passed her Cambridge B1 Preliminary for Schools exam, and now plans to move onto the next level.
During preparations for the exam she received a huge show of support from her social media followers with over 1 million likes and nearly 20,000 comments on Instagram and Facebook. Before winning the Eurovision Contest Roxie won the Voice Kids show in Poland. She was also voted ‘The best Polish Artist’ during MTV Europe Music Awards 2019.
B1 Preliminary for Schools qualification is one of the popular Cambridge English Qualifications, developed by Cambridge Assessment English. It is designed to show that a student has mastered the basics of English and now has practical language skills for everyday use.
On receiving her certificate Roxie said:
‘It is amazing how my English improved since I started learning with Cambridge. It’s been quite a lot of work to prepare for the exam, but I can clearly see now that it was worth it. No doubt I will soon start preparing for the next level – B2 First for Schools.’
Since releasing her debut solo album in June 2019 until late March 2019, 15-year-old Roxie has been touring extensively across Poland with live performances.
Adam Maciaszczyk, Country Manager for Poland at Cambridge Assessment English.
‘Congratulations to Roxie! It takes a lot of hard work and motivation to prepare for a Cambridge English Qualification, so this is a really big achievement. For the past 10 months Roxie has had to juggle between English and her various artistic commitments and we wish her all the best in her next Cambridge challenge!’
