Cambridge English – anniversary year gets underway

date:Mar 22,2013 source:互联网 editorial staff:linan clicks:

This year marks the 100 year anniversary of Cambridge English exams. To coincide with this important milestone, we have also changed our name to Cambridge English Language Assessment to make it easier for people to understand what we actually do.

When you consider that the first Cambridge English: Proficiency exam was taken by three people and it was over 12 hours long, it’s fair to say that quite a lot has changed in English language assessment.

The Cambridge English story began in 1913 in a single exam centre in the UK. The exam included translation, dictation and phonetic transcription.

Today, Cambridge English exams are taken by over 4 million candidates around the world. They focus on the real-life communications skills candidates need for success at university, in the workplace and for immigration. This enormous growth reflects how English has evolved into a key skill needed to achieve a competitive advantage.

We are celebrating our centenary with a programme of events around the world. A new book, "Cambridge English exams - the first hundred years" will be published in early 2013.
