As an advanced exam, the ECPE emphasizes both fluency (the ability to use English to express ideas) as well as accuracy (the strict adherence to grammatical rules). Unlike more academic oriented exams like the MELAB, the skills assessed on the ECPE exam are general and applicants can use their results as evidence of their English competency for educational and professional pursuits. Indeed, as an older and more established exam, it is primarily targeted at students pursuing English-language higher education and working professionals who are interested in certifying their English proficiency to improve their job prospects.
This First Certificate course uses a variety of contemporary texts to motivate students. Key vocabulary is highlighted in exercises at the beginning of each unit, enabling students to carry out reading, writing and speaking tasks more effectively and confidently; grammar practice is found in a grammar notes section which provides explanations on areas that students find problematic. Four progress tests provide useful exam practice and revision of the preceding units. Additionally, there are a variety of regular and motivating discussion-based activities designed to encourage students to develop confidence and fluency in their oral skills.
