Cambridge C1 Advanced

Updated: Dec 29, 2023

On our C1 Advanced Examination course (CAE)

In the morning, you will attend our group English lessons at an advanced level. These focus on improving your general English language skills at a high level. During these lessons you will practice the four English skills; speaking, listening, reading and writing, cover advanced grammar and also expand your vocabulary. This helps to provide you with invaluable general training in order to take the CAE exam.

In the afternoon, you will attend our CAE Exam option class. You will now focus exclusively on examination preparation. These lessons are based on examination course books and past CAE papers and will train students for each examination module. The teacher will also focus on exam techniques. Each week you will be given timed past exam papers to do and you will also have the opportunity to do examination practice exercises on the internet for extra examination practice. You should expect around 1.5 hours of homework on most evenings and more at weekends.

Benefits of taking The Cambridge CAE Exam

The CAE certificate is valid for life. You will not need to take the exam again. CAE is a truly international certificate and is recognised by more than 3,000 universities, businesses, government departments and other organisations around the world, as an index of high-level achievement. In many countries, job applicants who can prove strong English skills by having a CAE certificate have better access to jobs and higher earning potential. CAE also gives you a pathway to higher qualifications such as the Cambridge Proficiency (CPE). CAE is at Level C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) — an internationally recognised benchmark of language ability.

What you will be able to do after taking a CAE Course

You will have developed your reading skills so that you can deal confidently with different types of text, such as fiction, newspapers, magazines and more complex pieces of writing.

You will have developed your grammar and structure skills which will enable you to confidently produce clear, detailed writing, expressing opinions and explaining the advantages and disadvantages of different points of view and produce articles, essays, letters, proposals, reports and reviews at a high level of English.

You will have developed your listening skills which will enable you to follow and fully understand a range of spoken situations, such as news programmes, interviews and broadcasts, presentations, talks and everyday conversations.
