What is CAEL for?

Students who want to study in Canada can use CAEL to assess their English proficiency and apply to major universities and institutions with ease.
CAEL provides an authentic representation of language used in a Canadian academic setting.
CAEL is a practical exam that focuses on relevant topics that apply to everyday life.



  • CAEL is a practical test, which is more related to real life.
  • Each part of the exam focuses only one topic. The test site is small and easy to prepare.
  • Other portions of the exam can be used as reference and often corroborate with each other.
  • The questions are very straightforward, with less synonymous conversion of keyword positioning words and fewer traps, making it easier for students to find accurate answers and get high scores. The test format is derived from Canadian classrooms and is very suitable for local international students.
  • Candidates for the CAEL test can take the computer-based test at home or at the test center. This flexibility is meant to accommodate for test takers with different circumstances.


  • IELTS is based on theory and emphasizes ability and high scores. The examination is gradually "de-skilled.”
  • IELTS requires a wide range of knowledge because each section contains different topics. The reading score standard is higher, which requires long-term accumulation, and is difficult to quickly improve.
  • Vocabulary and question types are diverse, and IELTS writing standards are also high, requiring long-term training and skills.
  • Keyword positioning words are frequently synonymous, and there are many "traps" in the questions.
  • The test must be written in a designated center. Space is limited, registration is competitive, and the test cycle is long.

Frequently Asked Questions

The CAEL exam is already a national exam, so the results of the CAEL exam are accepted by almost all Canadian universities, colleges and high schools. Each university will have different requirements for the results of the CAEL exam according to the major and subject that the students apply for.

No need to worry, before the start of the course, we will conduct assessment tests to ensure that students can accurately locate their English proficiency. The tutor will design the most suitable and efficient test preparation plan for you according to your goals! Even during the course, if the teacher finds that the material is too difficult or easy, they will make corresponding changes according to the students' situation.

As all students have different strengths and weaknesses, our tutors will work with you to strengthen areas that you have difficulties with. The CAEL exam topics will vary, and our tutors will prepare students by exposing them to potential topics that the exam may focus on, in addition to listening and speaking skills. We will also concentrate on how to read articles quickly and find keywords, as well as vocabulary for writing.

Students who live in the Vancouver area are free to take in-person classes at our Vancouver office. We also accommodate students who prefer to learn online in a safe environment at home or live outside of the province.

There are also test centers in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong.

After you sign up for the online course, you will receive instructions on how to join the online class. For the first class, we recommend students to join 30 minutes beforehand to ensure that your microphone and camera work.

CAEL is a computer-based test amd can be taken at a testing center or online at home. IELTS must be written at a testing center and focuses on a wide range of topics instead of one.
