What did our customers say about Blabu miniCourse “Prepare for FCE (B2FIRST) speaking part”?

"Last minute confidence boost"

I took the FCE preparation course but somehow there has never been enough speaking practice for everyone in the class. I thought I was doing fine but as the date of my exam was approaching, I panicked. I took the FCE miniCourse just 2 days before my exam and it was the best decision ever! Blabu tutors helped me to repeat the exam structure and they helped me to practice all the challenging parts. Thank you so much.

"Perfect help for self-study preparation"

I decided to prepare myself for the whole certificate just with textbooks and it was going great till I reached the speaking part. I found it very hard to practice speaking by myself and I could not get any experienced feedback anywhere because I live in a small city. Blabu tutors were absolutely amazing helping me with both exam methodology and my speaking skills. I was completely calm on the day of my exam and now I have my certificate! I cannot wait to add it to my application for further studies abroad.
