Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds, although it can be taken by students of other ages. It is tried, tested and trusted. It is taught by over 4700 schools in 150 countries.The program balances a thorough knowledge and understanding of the English language and helps to develop the skills learners need in education or employment.
The aims of the IGCSE Syllabus are to:
- develop learners’ ability to use English effectively for the purpose of practical communication
- form a solid foundation for the skills required for further study or employment using English as the medium
- develop learners’ awareness of the nature of language and language-learning skills
- promote learners’ personal development.
Cambridge IGCSE English as a Second Language offers learners the opportunity to develop practical communication skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Learners will be presented with a variety of stimuli that will build up their skills in reading and writing. They will learn to select relevant details, understand the difference between what is directly stated and implied, and practise writing for different purposes and audiences. Learners will listen to a range of spoken material, including talks and conversations, in order to develop listening skills. Learners will engage in conversations on a variety of topics, and develop their skills in responding to different situations and audiences with a degree of accuracy and clarity.
Cambridge IGCSE English as a Second Language will enable learners to become independent users of English, and to be able to use English to communicate effectively in a variety of practical contexts.

What are the limitations on choosing lessons?
For better planning and subsequently better service for you, Interlead-Experts.com has put some basic limitations when choosing your lessons. For Group Lessons, you need to purchase at least 5 lessons, starting from Lesson 1 of your chosen Course. The lessons you choose have to be consecutive. For example, you cannot choose Lessons 1, 5, 6, 8, 10. You need to choose Lessons 1,2,3,4,5 and then continue from there. For Private Lessons, you can choose to buy only one lesson, but it has to be the first lesson of your chosen Course and then move to the next one. Again, you cannot skip any lessons in between, as the Course is structured in a certain way so that the learning process is more efficient.
