cae speaking tips


I'm Andrew, the English teacher who started CAE Exam Tips. I'm happy you found the site and I'm sure you'll find it useful.

I wanted to put all my CAE knowledge into one place - a site that would help students around the world get the best possible grade in their CAE exam. It's not a complete guide to English - for that you need a good coursebook, a good teacher, and a good attitude. But if your English is at the right level, following the advice on this site will make sure you get the CAE grade you deserve. And if you are maybe just a little bit below the right level, these tips could help you sneak over the line to a passing grade...

With experience of teaching in Shanghai, Taiwan, Poland, Greece, Germany, Czech Republic, the United Kingdom, and with students from all corners of the globe, the teachers at CAE Exam Tips are experienced, friendly, and have helped countless students pass exams.

We've got a fast-growing community over on Facebook. Come and say hi!


Feel free to get in touch with the CAE Exam Tips team - leave feedback, offer suggestions, make requests, or ask a question about the CAE exam. Our friendly team will try to reply to all messages. (We won't sell your email address to anyone.)
