100 years of Cambridge English examinations


This year marks the 100th anniversary of Cambridge English examinations. This landmark coincides with a change in the name of Cambridge ESOL Examinations, which will now be known as Cambridge English Language Assessment.

It all started in 1913, when three people took the first Cambridge English: Proficiency examination in a single examination center in the UK; that 12 hour-long test included translation, dictation, and phonetic transcription. Today, Cambridge English examinations are taken by over 4 million candidates around the world. The examinations focus on the real-life communications skills that candidates need for immigration purposes or for success at university and in the workplace.

To celebrate this important landmark,  Cambridge English Language Assessment is organizing events around the world, one of which is scheduled to take place in Athens for the entire region of South East Europe.
