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 and work institutions around the world!

In this course I give you all the best tips, techniques and resources to effectively prepare yourself for the Writing paper of the exam. I go through each part of this paper 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.

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 Writing paper. 

The course comprises 12 video lessons with lots of useful information, tips and practice exercises. Homework exercises are given.
