City & Guilds

International English Language Examinations

in Russia



How old do I have to be to take International English Language examinations?


City & Guilds are delighted to show how very young children can succeed in such a daunting task as taking International examinations with native UK examiners. There are many examples of 7 year olds passing Level 1 examinations, and 8 year olds succeeding at level 2, despite the fact that there are no concessions made in the exam papers because of their age.


Some students are the products of excellent teaching by individual private teachers, who then send their candidates to a large exam centre such as their local university or school.  There are other examples where a whole school eg a State Linguistic Gymnasie enters most of its students for City & Guilds International exams each year.  School 1228, a specialised School in Moscow, entered most of its 9 year olds, and they achieved an amazing 100% pass rate.

Such young children are not phased by taking written exams in a foreign language, nor indeed are they when taking spoken English exams, sometimes to the incredulity of their parents and, possibly their teachers!  The modern colloquial language, and the adult, contemporary business context, of both written and spoken exams does not surprise them.


Young children, and their families, are greatly motivated by such success, — it encourages them to carry on with their studies and return the following year to take the next level.  This also helps the teacher have well motivated students.   In a few years time they will provide university faculties of languages with incredibly talented candidates.

City & Guilds was pleased to write a letter in support of their dedicated teacher, Galina Artamonova, for her application for the Presidents prize.  It is wonderful to know that she has been given this prestigious award — it was richly deserved.


Many of our candidates are adults, both business people and teachers. Natalia Nikonova (Head of Belebey C&G International Exam Centre) on the left, taking a level 6 spoken English exam, with UK examiner, Sandra Shelley.

"What I like about working with C&G:

  • belonging to a team of bright & friendly people around Russia as well as around the world, with access to new technologies & the ability to use them in our work. New internationally recognised standards in teaching and assessment, video-conferencing, etc as well as methodological support, regular seminars & materials
  • an on-going process of learning,& as a result, constant personal and professional development. A competitive advantage in today`s highly demanding work place
  • I just enjoy meeting new interesting people & talking to them, both teachers & candidates especially, & helping them to find a better place, or the right place for them in this changing world by getting internationally recognised certificates to prove their knowledge of English. The fact that most of them succeed in itmakes me very happy, and it means my work and efforts are very rewarding."
