Introducing the CAEL Path to Success

In this post, we outline materials available for you with the CAEL Path to Success, and how you can use these study materials to help prepare for your CAEL Test.

The CAEL Path to Success is a study plan that walks you through your preparation journey. To begin, the CAEL Path to Success Checklist outlines all of the suggested steps in preparing for CAEL, including the 8+ hours of free online courses, free practice test, and more.

In addition, the second page of the Path to Success features a convenient checklist to help you track which online courses you have attended or watched, as well as see quick summaries of available paid study materials in case you are looking for further preparation.

The CAEL Online Courses are a free resource that we are excited to provide in both webinar and recorded formats. Live webinars are available every month, with the entire suite of CAEL Online Courses taught live by a CAEL expert each month. If you are unable to attend the live webinars, recorded versions of each session are also available on our YouTube channel.

The available webinars include:

  • CAEL 101: Get the Facts – This introductory session will help you become familiar with the test format, procedures, available study materials, and more.

I appreciated the availability of test dates for CAEL, and found it convenient and inexpensive compared to other English proficiency tests.

What I liked most about the CAEL was that you can do the test on the computer, it uses Canadian English, and the results are released quickly!
