CAEL can help your organization gauge the English language abilities of your applicants, students, or members to communicate with co-workers, understand directions from superiors, and interpret and respond to written materials.
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!
