Do you want to have a C1 English certificate?
Do you want to get into an English speaking university?
Do you want to improve your job prospects?
This course is designed to help you prepare yourself for the Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) C1 level English exam. This is a globally recognised language exam – accepted by lots of education institutions and work institutions around the world!
I've had loads of students pass this exam and I know exactly what the examiners are looking for. I detail this throughout the course and give you all the best tips, techniques and resources to effectively prepare yourself. I go through each section of the exam giving you the best advice on how to answer the questions, so hopefully it won't be necessary for you to spend lots of extra money on lessons.
I've had to learn the best way to prepare for this exam myself in order to get all my students to pass it over the last few years. I go through each individual exam section, show you the techniques and allow you to practise these with live examples. By the end of the course you will know exactly what to do in order to best prepare yourself.
There is no other course that I have found which focuses on and instructs you how to pass each section of this exam, using exam samples for practice exercises. This course allows you to concentrate specifically on what you need to do in order to pass the exam.
The course comprises 10 powerpoint presentation slides. There are no videos, documents or other tests, although advice on self preparation and homework suggestions are given. There are no pre-requisites for this course and books and study materials can all be found on this website: http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/exams-and-tests/advanced/preparation/
I also include a presentation on useful resources where there are links to preparation websites and books.
After completing this course, you will not need to spend lots of money on individual lessons as you will know exactly what to do and what materials to use to best prepare for each section of the CAE exam.
