How We Started
We first started in the early 1970's as an English Language Program offered at the international campuses of Atlantic Pacific University. APU had been established in 1950 and recognized the need for an English as a Foreign Language Department. With the constantly growing need for English training, APU separated it's English Department and in 1990 formed First English as a separate entity. Although First English is now independent, we still have the full support and endorsement of APU. First English is also endorsed by several other international universities as well as private English schools. Except for it's main campus and headquarters, APU has gone totally Internet based, however, First English still maintains training centers in several counties and conducts training/certificate seminars in dozens of cities/countries.
The actual certificate in English Language Proficiency is awarded once the applicant has taken a series of tests to determine their abilities in reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
Currently there are three applications for our certification
The certification test is offered in several ways:
Registration and Accreditation
