Learn English with CATs

Develop English language skills learners can use in the real world; for work, for travel, for life!

The 9-level CATs Core programme offers a structured approach to improving English language skills in well supported steps.


Learning and testing are combined to create a complete English language programme.

  • CATs tests provide learners with recognition of their English language achievements and keep them motivated to continue learning and developing their skills.
  • Learners are provided with all the learning materials and practice they need to prepare for each CATs test.
  • The self-study approach and flexible practice materials make it easy for learners to study at a time and place that suits them.

Learners can study when they want to, with the mobile learning App.

  • Take CATs lessons on a phone or tablet at a time and place that is convenient.
  • The mobile learning App includes all of the learning materials and gives learners extra practice to develop their vocabulary, improve their grammar and practise their listening and comprehension skills.

Everything learners need to successfully develop their English skills

  • When learners are ready to take a 45-60 minute level test, they will be guided through the simple process of booking a test session in dedicated test centres, schools or even at home.
  • Tests are completely delivered on computer and learners will receive their test score and useful feedback online soon after completing the test.
  • CATs tests are quality assured to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for languages. This gives learners a recognised standard of achievement.
