Coming to the UK from the EU to grow a business? Study and take your A1 test with LanguageCert before you apply for your visa

Despite Brexit and the borders being temporarily closed to many countries the UK is determined to bounce back quickly and many predictions are that the economy will grow rapidly (some saying by up to 6%) in the next two quarters. Many Europeans still want to come and expand their EU based business in the UK, especially now we’re coming out of the pandemic.

To take advantage of this opportunity to be part of this potential boom and grow either your own or your employers’ business you will need a Representative of an Overseas business Visa. Wherever you come from, you must satisfy visa requirements to be able to stay in the UK and for many people one of those is passing the basic SELT A1 exam.

For a busy business person this can seem another daunting task on the road to business success. LanguageCert offers Home Office approved Ofqual regulated English language exams for UK visas and immigration.

The team at LanguageCert has put some top tips to take the worry out of studying and preparation for the A1 test, smoothing the path to getting your visa and letting you focus on business.

1.     Make a timetable. If you know you have to take and pass your exam by a certain date, make a plan to start studying well in advance.  Set aside a certain amount of time each day or evening to work on the skills you need.  If you’re busy working during the day set aside bite size chunks of time in the evening to study.

2.     Do your homework.  LanguageCert has some fantastic videos that walk you through the preparation and exam (step by step) and help you understand the kind of questions you will be asked and the meaning of those questions.

3.     Try and immerse yourself in English, watch T.V., listen to the radio and look at newspapers, these are fun ways to help you prepare for the exams and you’ll start understanding recognising words and meanings.

4.     Practice, practice, practice. You can never prepare too much, and the more you practice the more confident you will feel in the exam.
