What is CAEL?

CAEL, (The Canadian Academic English Language Test), measures the English language proficiency of students planning to study at Canadian universities and colleges.


CAEL is one of the best tools for identifying students with the right English skills for academic success. It provides an authentic representation of language use in a Canadian academic context. 

Test Takers read articles, listen to a lecture, answer questions, and write a short essay, as they would be expected to do in a Canadian university or college classroom.
