The FCE and CAE exams are recognized by thousands of employers, universities and government ministries as proof of the English language use. Both examinations are also aligned with the levels and standards implemented by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

CEL offers FCE and CAE exam preparation courses throughout the year. Students must be at the upper intermediate level to take the FCE prep course. Those interested in taking the CAE prep course must be at the advanced level. Cambridge exam prep classes are kept small (an average of 6 and a maximum of 10 students) so teachers can work one-on-one with students and use the best tools fit for each student’s learning style. Teachers monitor your progress throughout the course ensuring your way to passing the exam. Please note that we have specific start dates for our Cambridge exam preparation courses.
