Your progress

It’s important that your time here at Studio Cambridge is productive. We recognise that students coming to study with us may have different goals in mind for their progression. 

This is key to your stay with us and we will do all we can to ensure you make good progress with your English. Our lessons, social programme and host family accommodation are all designed to help you to take full advantage of your time with us to make progress in your English.

Here are some other things we do:


A tutorial is a private meeting with a teacher, in which you can discuss the progress you have made and what you need to do next to reach your goals.

Your Study Plan

Based on the personal goals identified in your tutorials and your work in class, your teacher will give you a personalised Study Plan. This will guide you to work on those areas of English which you need to focus on to improve your command of the language.

Weekly progress test

This is an in-class test that you take with your classmates on the work covered that week. The teacher designs the test to fit with the language he or she expects you to know by the end of the week. It gives you clear feedback on how much you have learnt and if there are areas you need to review.

Exit or progress test

This test is taken outside of your class, usually when you come to the end of your course but sometimes to measure your progress mid-way on your course. The test is similar to the placement test and measures your overall level. You will receive a certificate showing the progress you made from the start to the end of the course.


Learning Centre

We offer a wide range of e-learning exercises for those students who prefer screens to paper. One advantage of e-learning is that your answers are marked immediately and so you don’t need to wait to find out how well you have done.  The exercises include:

  • Watching to video clips and answering questions on what you have heard
  • Pronunciation exercises
  • Grammar tasks in which you need to fill in the gaps
  • Vocabulary multiple choice



Your teacher will set you homework which complements your classroom studies.

Learning Centre

You will have access to our Learning Centre in which you can do homework, do additional exercises on paper or on computers, borrow books at your level and receive guidance from a teacher.

We have a wide selection of materials to help you to improve your English:

  • Graded Readers with audio – these books are written for students, according to their level of English
  • Study books and computer software on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and exams
  • Films (DVDs)
  • General Fiction
  • Reference books and dictionaries, newspapers and magazines


We set missions for you, with the goal of finding out information and encouraging you to practice your conversation skills around the city. Studio missions are fun, out-of-school assignments, which help you to explore Cambridge while practising and improving your English.
