It is important for you to understand that it is a lot of self-study and self-motivation to reach the CL5 level for your TEF exam.
Please note that we cannot promise any results after this preparation as it depends on each student. It is also hard to know how long it takes to reach an intermediate level as it depends on you ( mother tongue, other languages, motivation, time dedicated to studying). We hope the information below will help you take the best decision for you.
