CAE Preparation Online – Prepare Yourself for CAE Introduction

It will be difficult for most students to pass the exam without self preparation. Luckily, my courses and lessons are designed to teach and give you the confidence and techniques to study effectively on your own. Therefore you don't need to spend lots of money having private lessons.

CAE Format

There are 4 main sections of the Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) exam: Reading and Use of English, Speaking, Listening and Writing. We have designed our online lessons to include lots of tips and techniques, strategy preparation and practice to help you to prepare for the exam.

Reading and Use of English

90 minutes.

8 parts.

Parts: 1-4 – Use of English

Part 1 – 8 marks

Part 2 – 8 marks

Part 3 – 8 marks

Part 4 – 12 marks

Parts 5-8 – Reading

Part 5 – 12 marks

Part 6 – 8 marks

Part 7 – 12 marks

Part 8 – 10 marks

The Reading and Use of English section consists of 8 parts and this section lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes. The first 4 parts focus on grammar and vocabulary. Our online preparation lessons test your understanding of varying word types, sentence structures and collocations. These are all important areas to practise when preparing for the CAE. The final 4 parts focus on reading. They test your overall comprehension and awareness of how sentences and paragraphs fit within different written texts. They also test your ability to find and understand small differences in meaning between similar looking sentences.


The Speaking section has 4 parts. The first part is a general chat between the candidate and the examiner when they typically ask personal questions. In part 2, you have one minute to answer a question about some different photos. You then answer a question about another candidate's pictures. In part 3 the examiner gives you a topic to discuss with another candidate for 2/3 minutes. You then have one minute with your partner to answer another question. In part 4, you have a further discussion which is connected to the topic in part 3. Our CAE preparation online course aims to cover each of these sections in detail.


The Listening section has 4 parts including multiple choice and sentence completion questions. You listen to conversations set in different contexts. In order to prepare for this, you need to be able to locate and select both general and specific information.


The Writing section of the exam has 2 parts. The first part requires students to write a 220-260 word essay. You must write about 2 points from a choice of 3 and explain why one point is the most important. In the second part, you have to write a 220-260 word letter, proposal, report or review.

Our CAE preparation online course and lessons aim to give you the confidence to pass all of these sections of the exam.

Positive aspects of group learning

People often underestimate or don’t think about the positive aspects of group learning. Particularly when learning a language, learning with and from your peers is highly important. Not only for the language benefits, but also in meeting other students pursuing the same goals. Of course adult language learning, when students are often voluntarily joining language classes, is a lot different to forced language learning as part of a school. No doubt for many people from poorer parts of the world, learning English for example, is a necessity.

CAE Preparation Online Private Lessons - £20 per hour

These lessons are flexible and can focus on any part of the exam that you want. Book an introductory chat with your teacher before booking lessons.

Your contact time with the teacher is important. Therefore, my CAE Preparation Online lessons usually focus on the Use of English and Speaking parts of the exam. This is because these aspects are not as easy to prepare by yourself.
