Estonian schools promote English

International Edu News

The Estonian Ministry of Education will offer school leavers the chance to take the C1 Advanced qualification from Cambridge Assessment English instead of their school-leaving English test, which is set at a B2 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR ). Estonia's school leavers already have some of the best English skills in Europe. 

Estonia already delivers a very high standard of English language teaching and this move will promote mobility and international cooperation. The test will be offered free of charge as an option for students with English language skills higher than B2, adding English to the languages that students can take a higher-level international qualification in. Only those studying French, German and Russian had the option so far, according to a ministry statement. Having access to international English language certifications will bring benefits for employers and the higher education sector, promoting mobility and international cooperation.
