What is the CAEL Assessment? The Canadian Academic English Assessment (CAEL) is a standardized test of English in use for academic purposes, designed to describe the level of English language test takers planning to study in English-medium colleges and universities. CAEL is recognized across Canada as a benchmark examination to illustrate English language proficiency. The CAEL test is growing rapidly and is now being accepted at some institutions in the United States.
What is the CAEL Assessment? It offers a unique alternative to other standardized tests of English because it is an integrated, task-based test on one topic Test takers read articles, listen to a lecture, answer questions and write a short essay-all on one subject, as they would be expected to do in a first year university or college classroom This exam is 2.5 hours in length and is very test "friendly"

LLI offers two levels of study, Pre-CAEL Assessment CAEL Assessment Preparation (intermediate and advanced). This program is based on a 100 hour curriculum and can be offered full time or part time.
