You’ve come a long way in your English studies. You know that it hasn’t been easy and now you feel that you can demonstrate your full potential. You’re looking at your options. Maybe you’ll live in an English-speaking country as a student or for work. Or you might even look for job opportunities in your country that require an advanced level of English.

The CAE Certificate (Certificate in Advanced English) is an excellent way to validate your knowledge of English, with a level equivalent to the C1 in the CEFR. The CAE English certificate certifies that you’re able to use the language for complex tasks in professional and academic environments.

Tips for getting your CAE Certificate

It’s great to know that you can go anywhere in the world and have the confidence to study or work, without needing to worry about your English skills. This is a privilege that few people can really enjoy. If you’re focusing on getting your Cambridge Advanced, you should keep the following tips in mind.

Practice your writing

Don’t forget that the CAE Certificate will evaluate your knowledge of expressions and vocabulary from the United Kingdom. Read items in English, such as recent articles, and then write essays about what you read. Try to use formal language and connectors to better structure your ideas.

Take practice tests

If you’re still not sure whether to take the B2 First or Cambridge Advanced, take some online tests to find out what your current level is and which Cambridge certificate is best for you. Ask a teacher or an English-speaking friend. They may be able to help you decide.

Open your mouth

The only way to overcome your fear is through practice, specifically when interacting with other people. Even though chatting in English, watching movies, and listening to music are excellent learning tools, it’s time for you to take it one step further and talk. This is how you’ll discover your most common mistakes and overcome your fears.

Perfect your grammar and vocabulary

Improve your grammar by learning new rules and more complex expressions. When reading a text or watching a video, ask questions like: Why did he say that? Who is she talking to? What tense are they using?

Finally, check online dictionaries for synonyms so that you can find new ways to say things. Read their definitions in English instead of their translations.
