The exam Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) is an ESOL exam equivalent to the level C1 of the Common European Framework Reference. Supported by the largest research programme of its kind, it is an international qualification designed to be fair to users of all nationalities and linguistic backgrounds. It covers all four language skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and knowledge of grammar and vocabulary.

This exam is the one that follows the FCE and it shows that you can communicate  effectively, study at universities and work at the highest levels.

Preparing and passing this exam helps you develop the language skills needed for success in study and work, since it is accepted by educational institutions worldwide, including universities and colleges.

Considering all these aspects as well as the performances achieved by our students in different internal and external evaluations, it is that we have decided to offer  our IV senior students the possibility of reaching this important achievement.

To learn more about this exam we speak with Andrea Rodriguez, Academic Consultant of Cambridge University Press.

What is the CAE Certificate?

As Miss Marta said, the exam is designed to be fair to users of all nationalities and linguistic backgrounds.

It covers all four language skills (Reading, writing, listening and speaking) and knowledge of gramar and vocabulary.
