To 2º Bachillerato students...

Do you realize that you (probably!) have never known
as much English as this year?
Why not try and pass an official English examination?
These are some of the possibilities :

1) Our Escola Oficial de Idiomas has 3 levels
(Basic / Intermediate / Advanced)
You can enroll for their exams until April, 28th.

2) Cambridge ESOL also has several levels,
F.C.E. (perhaps even C.A.E.) may be a good option.

3) Trinity College, which some of you told me about.

Here is a Table of comparisons between these (and other) exams
with the increasingly famous Common European Framework (CEFR):
An FCE Sample Test
A CAE Sample Test
