Sairam Murugan

Grade 9,HISG,Chennai

I am an A2 Key learner studying in Hindustan International School, Guindy, Chennai, India. I started appearing for CAE exams since I was 8 years old and I have completed A1 movers and A2 flyers so far with distinction. CAE English has encouraged my continuous progression with a clear path to improve my English skills which consists of Reading, writing, listening, and speaking. This course has not only improved my fluency but it also has given me a great command over the language. My school provided me with the course material, classroom training and mock tests with excellent teachers who mentored and trained me for the exams. My ambition is to gain admissions at leading universities worldwide. CAE gives a great advantage to prepare myself for competitive English exams like the IELTS.

Candace Magdalene,

Grade 6B,HISG,Chennai

CAE is one of the popular English proficiency test for those who are aspiring to go abroad for studies or for work. The assessment is given on all four skills – Reading & Writing, Listening and Speaking. In HIS, they have excellent infrastructure and well-trained teachers who give individual attention to all students so that they can excel in all four levels. I have completed A1 Movers, A2 flyers and currently ding A2 key for schools. It helps me to improve my vocabulary and professional communication skills consistently thereby giving confidence to take part in group activities in schools. Unlike regular English classes, it is a skill-based learning. It focusses on listening, accent, better ways to communicate and inter personal skills. I would recommend CAE to all students who want to improve their English proficiency with confidence.
