LANGUAGECERT C1 EXPERT

La compra del examen la puedes hacer con Salón de Idiomas a un precio más reducido que comprando por la página de LanguageCert. Una vez comprado el examen, se te darán unos códigos (vouchers) correspondientes a los exámenes y a los Take Two (si deseas comprar el seguro). Los exámenes los podrás comprar por separado y los Take two se contratarían cuando compres el examen. El «Take Two» no es obligatorio. Es un seguro porque puedes contratar y con el que podrás volver a presentarte el examen sin pagar nada más que el precio original del Take Two. La validez de los códigos de examen es de 1 año desde la fecha de la compra (es decir, que puedes canjear y hacer tu examen en 12 meses). La validez de los códigos correspondientes al Take Two es de 6 meses.

Una vez recibidos los códigos/comprados los exámenes, podrás crearte una cuenta en la página de LanguageCert y desde tu cuenta podrás seleccionar las fechas de examen. El examen lo puedes hacer literalmente cuando desees siempre que haya disponibilidad; sin embargo te puedes presentar a cualquier hora (24 horas/ 7 días a la semana/ 365 días al año) y se hace desde casa. Es un examen muy controlado y hacer trampas es imposible o sólo te asegura un suspenso y la imposibilidad de presentarte en futuras ocasiones.

Recibirás tu certificado en tu cuenta a los 3 días y por correo postal en unos 10 días.

Este examen es válido en la mayoría de las Comunidades Autónomas para conseguir la habilitación lingüística o para sumar puntos en las oposiciones.
