Mr. John DSouza, Director and Exams Manager of The English Advantage, commented, “This event marks a significant leap forward in our mission to promote internationally acclaimed English language skills. By partnering with Kristu Jayanti College, we are not only enabling students to excel in the C1 Advanced Examinations but also cultivating a broader understanding of the English language that holds value far beyond the examination hall.”
The partnership’s impact reaches beyond the confines of the campus, as C1 Advanced qualifications serve as vital credentials for students pursuing overseas admissions and visas.

These skills not only empower them to perform admirably at the in-house examinations, but also at international language examinations like the C1 or the IELTS. Such training and certification will position them for success in the global workforce.”
The MoU outlines that the Jayantian Language Training Centre (JLTC) of Kristu Jayanti College will take a leading role in curating effective training programs for the C1 Advanced candidates. As language proficiency is an essential tool for modern communication, the partnership between TEA and KJC is set to result in an overall enhancement of English language skills across the campus.
