Cambridge English Language Assessment rectifies

Regarding Trinity College London Exams and their recognition,Cambridge English Language Assessment,part of the University of Cambridge rectifies the following:

"In a recent message sent to you on 10th September we may have inadvertently given the impression that the exams offered by Trinity College London have been removed by the Home Office from its list of approved SELT providers. This is not the case. Trinity College London voluntarily removed its ESOL Skills for Life test in the same way that Cambridge English has removed BULATS. Trinity continues to offer the GESE Grade 2 and above, and ISE for visa and immigration purposes through its network of registered SELT centres. We apologise for any confusion caused and ask you to delete our previous mailing from your systems, all copies made of it and any promotional materials derived from it immediately so that the confusion does not recur."

Greece: Financial crisis brings greater demand for English learning

As financial crisis increases its negative effect on the Greek economy, the need for English is constantly growing, both due to the competitive professional envionment and the fact that thousands of Greeks are emigrating, either to look for a job or to study abroad, being the UK one of the most popular destinations.

Another reason for this higher demand, is the great importance that certificates have adquired in the ELT market. Many employers will only hire people with a solid knowledge of the English language and having a certificate will give you an advantage over other applicants.

ELT school helps Greek families in need

This idea was inspired by the Salvation Army programmes 'By Your Side' and 'Adopt a Family', directed to help those most negatively affected by the economic crisis.

The Leech School of English was able to help 12 families by evaluating their needs and then convincing parents of students to bring food.


Donations will be repeated each month until they are no longer required. In some cases, those who once used to donate now need charity, so the recipients' confidentiality is highly respected.

Other schools can also adopt a family and help in this cause. Those interested can contact Maria Konti-Galinou or Polis Pantelides at 2111 821 486.
