English is becoming ever more important. The difference between being able to order something in a restaurant and really mastering the language may well be a diploma from Cambridge Assessment English. I got to know the Cambridge English Exams Centre in Bern as a highly motivated team, eager to make sure exams match real needs. Cambridge English exams are highly recognized in the business world, which enables students to get additional value from their certificates.

Hundreds of our students have successfully taken Cambridge Exams. We have always been impressed by the professional approach of this centre. The flexibility and the extraordinary willingness to find quick solutions to any problems has made this organization a reliable partner whom we are glad to continue our cooperation with.
Castle's English Institute branches in Zug and Luzern have worked with the Cambridge English Examinations Bern Centre since its inception and have always been extremely satisfied with the service it offers. We greatly value the fact that we have a contact person dedicated to our local area who deals with our candidates‘needs quickly, efficiently and totally professionally.
Nick Gibbons, Managing Director
Despite an ever-increasing amount of work, the Head Office of the Cambridge English Examinations Centre in Bern and the team of examiners and staff for both speaking and written examinations in the Luzern team have never lost sight of the importance of being team players and being 100% there for our candidates.
This team spirit is thanks to excellent leadership, cooperation and loyalty of all team members and has meant that many of the staff have worked for Cambridge for a large number of years. We don’t just preach team work, we practise it.
