Foreword

Established in 2001, Cambridge English for Life (CEFL) started from humble beginnings with 2 centres and 30 students to where it is today, a successful business with English centres throughout Malaysia, catering to more than 10,000 students. Since our inception, more than tens of thousands of students have graduated from our academy and have used their English skills obtained with us to pursue successful qualifications and careers.

In today’s competitive society, we are all acutely aware of the demand and need to be proficient in English. Here at CEFL, students are taught the essential skills to prepare them for the proficiency levels necessary for their studies and workplace.

At CEFL, we offer high quality that lead to the certificated qualifications offered by the University of Cambridge English Language Assessments (CELA). CEFL is approved and authorized by CELA to administer the entire suite of the CELA examinations. Our dedicated staff ensures that the relevant course material is taught and they also undergo regular and relevant training to ensure that our students receive the latest in teaching methodology.

Before a student commences with his or her course, a placement test is given to determine their skill level and they are placed in the relevant level according to the test results. With fifteen levels available for students of school age and six levels for adults, including business, legal and financial English, we are able to place students at the most appropriate level for their needs and proficiency level.

The teaching methodology we use at CEFL focuses on student participation through an interactive learning approach where student’s input is encouraged. To ensure accuracy and fluency is obtained from the lessons taught, teachers focus on teaching the relevant material using the four basic English skills, namely reading, writing, speaking and listening. We never lose sight of the importance of learning and understanding grammar and this is incorporated into all the lessons taught.

Here at CEFL, we believe that student involvement in the lessons plays a key part in their learning. Our lessons are always taught in a happy and relaxed atmosphere. Student’s participation is encouraged and we strive to make each lesson a happy and enjoyable experience for the students.

May I take this opportunity in welcoming you to the CEFL website and I hope that you will find the relevant information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact us with any problems or queries, we will be more than happy to answer them.
