English language, related to Dutch & German, is a West Germanic language of the Indo-European language family that is spoken all over the world by 1.5 billion inhabitants. It is the most studied foreign language.
You may know that the World Wide Web (the Internet) is mostly (around 60%) in English language. Not only is this the language of the Internet, but also business is made through it and scientific research is delivered in English.

The Cambridge Preliminary English Test, PET, or B1 Preliminary, is one of Cambridge Assessment English Qualifications. It is the English language exam that shows you have mastered the basics and now have practical language skills for everyday use.*

By the end of the course, you will be more confident and have reached, at least, a B1 level of English, that is to say an Intermediate level.
