Letters from Happy Students

This page is where I copy and paste the emails I get from students who take the time to write in and say thanks for all my hard work. Actually I made this website because I want to be a BILLIONAIRE but getting an email is nice, too!

Seriously though, people don't trust things they read on the internet so if you find this website was useful, please write and let me know. Those emails have two uses.

  1. It makes me happy. I normally read them aloud to my girlfriend and she rolls her eyes at how smug I am.
  2. It might convince someone who finds this website that the tips are useful and they should pay attention.

If you don't have the energy to write in, but would like to support this website, it would be helpful if you shared the Facebook or Youtube links with your friends or placed a link on your website:

Now, on with the praise:

“Subject: THANK YOU!

Message: Hello from Russia! I do believe in coincidences, so, it’s just a miracle that I found your site! I loved it! I loved it so much. Starting from the design of the site, ending with the style you chose to write your tips with, it’s so amazingly interesting to read all of them! Sometimes reading them even makes you laugh, isn’t that great? The most important, of course, is the content of the site. The info is extremely useful, to the point, and what’s really important: it’s easy to read, it’s like you are talking to your good friend or your favourite teacher! These are the real tips and not just basic information about how to do this or that part of the exam. So, thank you so much for what you do! It’s unbelieveably pleasant to use your site when preparing for the CAE!”

— P.P., Russia

Subject: feedback on your website

Message: As a teacher, I just want to say that your website is by far the best website I have seen to date. Well done!!!!


“I’m a student from Romania and I’m going to take the CAE exam tomorrow. My aim is to get an A and I have trained quite a lot for this. However, I am more of a science person and I find it hard to learn for a humanistic exam such as this. My teacher helped me, but since I have found the tips on caeexamtips.com and the YouTube channel I can definitely say that I feel prepared. Thanks for the good work and keep it up!”

— R.G., Romania

“I have really good news! I passed the exam! Once again thank you very much for your advice on your website! 
I had many things to study during this period and CAE was one of the most difficult for me... But I got it! I am so happy now!”

— A. P., Czech Republic

Subject: Thank you for your help!

Message: Hi! I've just found out I got an A in my CAE exam and wanted to thank you very much for all the helpful tips. I found this website only two days before the exam, but I was able to get a better understanding of the Speaking Test requirements thanks to the videos you made. I also used the order you recommended for the Reading and Use of English sections, which really saved me a lot of time. So thank you again and know that your website is making a big difference.

“This summer I passed CAE and got 171 ...It made me upset and I decided to retake it on the 16 of January....So, it is 1 AM in Ukraine and I am watching your tips and finding them very useful and interesting. It is a huge advantage that you demonstrate the procedure of the tasks. Frankly speaking, I watched only the part related to Reading and Use of English because I got the worst mark there.... but I hope to continue watching your tips....)))”

I am an English teacher preparing a student for the CAE test, and I couldn't remember how to tackle Listening paper 4. I find ALL of your tips absolutely GORGEOUS. Thank you again for such an extensive, interesting and rewarding piece of work.


“Message: Thank you so much for all these tips! Although I only found out the website some weeks before the test, it was very helpful. I just wanted to register my gratitude for all your work. I am studying to be a teacher my self and I hope some day I’ll be as good as you guys are. There is something about the way you explain that makes me feel more confident and less anxious. Thank you very much!”

“Subject: Great website!

Message: Wow, what an attractive and useful website! I shall be directing my students here, for sure. I teach all Cambridge levels right up to CPE, and my students often complain that they have no resources to use at home to study for the speaking test: how nice to find something so useful and succinct to prove them all wrong!”
