I want to be certificated because it is a prove of my level and an international certificate give more credit for your resumé, do you agree?

To me it's really important because I intend to take a "graduação-sanduíche" in Biotechnology. I still at high school, but I think that I know exactly which way I will go pass through... I mean, I already know what I want, and an international certificate make part of my fate. :P

To have an international certificate is very important if you want to study abroad. But if you live in Sweden, like me, and you studied English level B in Sweden, you don´t need to present an international certificate.

To have a certificate of your language course you finished is extremely important for you to get a job. Because when you have an job interview and you show your English certification, it'll be easier to be hired on that company.

Hi there!

Well, to me It doesn't matter in that if don´t get a god interview for job in English ever an certificate can be superfluos.

Get fluence is more important than an certificate.

I advice a rat race to get fluence is more crucial than a piece of paper if you don´t get prove your ability.

If you get an international certificate and you don´t get a god interview you seem like a fool.

Most American universities require the TEOFL exam for foreign students.
Some businesses require the TOEIC exam. The "BEC is an ideal English language exam if you are preparing for a career in business." from http://www.cambridgeesol.org/exams ... h/bec.html

So my chice, Falvia, is a. It is extremely important.

I agree with the man above!

To be fluence is more important for people that don't work like a english teacher, tradutor ..
In my area for example, a good interview in english is what matters most.

To have a certificate is very important for who wants to study abroad, because is mandatory to be admitted in those universities.

Marco,

I have taken the liberty of rewriting your post to demonstrate proper construction and grammar. Please compare my rewrite with your original post and determine if you understand why I made the changes that I did. If not please let me know what you need explained.

"Well, to me it doesn't matter, because if I don't have a good job interview in English then a certificate is superfluous.

Obtaining fluency is more important than a certificate.

I beleive that being fluent is more important than a piece of paper if you can't prove your ability.

If you have an international certificate and you don't have a good interview in English you would appear to be a fool."


Thank you for allowing me to assist you in your studies of English
