C1 Advanced/LEI Testimonials

Robin, why did you take the CAE?

“I took the C1 Advanced for being even more competitive in today’s fast moving and dynamic business world. Companies are asking for that in Switzerland”.

What did you want to do with it and have you achieved that?

“As a product manager, I have to speak English every day. Before the course started I always had bad feelings about making a mistake. Today, I’m confident and I love speaking English. During the preparation course, I achieved a great level of fluency, even with native speakers”.

Do you have any advice or tips during the course?

“The best thing you can do is use every possibility to speak with people from other nationalities or native speakers! What you have to do is speak English all day and maybe all night as well! Having hundreds of conversations is the main aspect when it comes to language learning. I occasionally went out alone and I always met extraordinary and kind people from Liverpool. They might be the friendliest people in the world. Make sure you know the Cambridge exam structure by heart. It‘s essential to have an English teacher who can guide you. At LEI they can guarantee this, they go above and beyond for you! The whatsapp connection you have with the school is great. They allow you to contact them at any point if you have any problems! I found this incredibly useful! The entire course and experience was worth every penny”!



Has the C1 Advanced been useful?

“Without this certificate, I wouldn’t have got the job I have now. They required this level of English and I was quite paranoid about not being able to achieve this level. I always felt that my speaking skills were good enough. However, being a requirement I had no choice but to take the exam. Having done the course, the level of my English increased a lot, and it showed me there was much more to learn. I want to thank Benjamin so much, not only is he a great director, but a fantastic teacher! I will be forever grateful to him”.

Important Information

Student book – £25 ( not included in course price)

Registration fee – £30 ( not included in course price)

An entry test will need to be taken, written and spoken, prior to enrolment (FREE) in order to distinguish whether the individual is at an appropriate level to take the specified preparation course. If not at the required level, students will still be able to enrol onto the course, but after having taken a general English course. (An entry test will then need to be taken once again to prove the individual is now at the REQUIRED level).



Do students have to book the exam in order to enrol onto the course?

Students DO NOT have to book the exam in order to take the preparation course. However, if students do decide that they want to take the exam after their course, they can do so through LEI who will help them through the booking process. The exam can be taken in Liverpool, in a certified examination centre.

How much is the exam?


The exam price is £120. We advise students to book the exam well in advance.

When booking the preparation course and interested in taking the exam, it is advised that the exam is also booked as well as the course. Students can email the institute’s director if interested in booking the exam:
