Cambridge ESOL exams are one of the most popular international qualifications in the world at present. They perform examination in general language competence including four communication skills such as Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. Besides, Cambridge ESOL exams do not have age limits and can be taken by any candidate, whose native language is not English. The certificates are only awarded to the candidates who achieve A, B or C grades and do not need to be confirmed.
