What Is CEFR?
The CEFR level of the CAE is C1 and is judged to be near that of a native English language speaker. Importantly it is recognised by all UK and worldwide Universities as level of English necessary to succeed in academic studies and as a bench mark for English level acceptable to understand academic studies.
Whether for work or academic reasons the CAE course at LITE will be an excellent choice.
Our Cambridge Advanced Preparation course is a 4 to 12 weeks intensive course.
The course covers all the reading, writing, listening and speaking skills necessary to take and pass the course successfully.
Students taking the course are given an entry test prior to starting the course or should show an appropriate qualification to show that they have passed the B2(equivalent to the First Certificate) level of English.
The course begins with introduction to fellow students and to the structure of the CAE examination as well as the course content and timetable for the course duration. In this way students will have a clear understanding of the path they will take in order to succeed in this challenging examination.
