Corsi di inglese livelli 8 e 9
Certificate of Advanced English CAE – Council of Europe Level C1
The Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) is a high level qualification intended for students wishing to use English for study or professional purposes. The CAE is recognised by the majority of British universities for English language entrance requirements. Further information about recognition is available at:
The course is open to students who have a thorough grounding in English. As well as revising and extending the major grammatical areas of English, more class time is devoted to developing skills work in listening, reading, speaking and writing.
CAE is designed to encourage the development of the skills necessary for progressing towards the Certificate of Proficiency in English CPE. However, there is a greater emphasis on real-world, practical tasks and contexts. For example, the written paper includes tasks such as a formal letter of enquiry and a report.
It is the policy of CLM BELL to enter those candidates for the exam who have a realistic chance of passing. Thus in January, before the final enrolment date, individual meetings between students and teachers are arranged to discuss progress and other issues related to the exam.
Students are required to purchase a course book and a practice test book to ensure thorough, systematic preparation for the exam. In addition, it is recommended that students buy a dictionary suitable for the demands of the exam (your teacher or Director of Studies can offer advice about the type of dictionaries available).
Certificate of Proficiency in English CPE – Council of Europe Level C2
At this level, students are expected to be approaching the linguistic competence of an educated native speaker.
CPE is recognised by the majority of British universities and colleges for English language entrance requirements. In addition, the exam is widely recognised by professional bodies in industry and commerce as an indication of a very high level of competence in English. Further information about recognition is available at:
The course assumes that students have a solid grounding in the major grammatical areas of English and more focus is placed on developing knowledge and use of vocabulary in a range of appropriate ways. A course book is used, but it is recommended that students read as widely as possible during the course. In fact, at this level students need to take more responsibility for their learning rather than depending solely on the teacher and class time as a source of input. Your teacher or Director of Studies can give you more advice about self-study options.
To ensure that students are prepared thoroughly for each of the five papers, you are required to buy a practice test book. Regular completion of homework tasks is expected and at this level students are expected to produce a substantial number of compositions with a more academic focus than other Cambridge examinations such as the CAE.
Before the final enrolment date for the June examination, individual meetings between students and teachers are arranged to discuss progress and other issues related to the course.
