The English composition and summary are two of the most difficult questions on the third phase of the CACD concurso. Both are not to be taken lightly. For this reason we give the most complete online course designed for you to achieve the highest of scores on the exam. See a further description and a video below


At the same time this course will give you the time and instruction and time to raise your level of English in order to be able to write about some of the most difficult subjects a candidate is expected to dominate.

The course starts with an important a strategy to improve your vocabulary, the important grammar items and then you will write. These form that foundation of the course and is covered in the first two weeks. This vocabulary strategy linked to the elimination of the candidadtes mistakes run throughout the course so the students can see and understand their progress.


You start when you want,  all you have to do is enroll through the link at the bottom of this page.
Although we have groups of students online, you will always have a one-to-one class with the teacher. The student’s communication will always be through your writing as this is the focus of the course, and the teacher will coach, correct and give you measured feedback throughout the writing phase. This measured feedback may take the form of 2 or three correction, if that is what is required for you to complete each section/week.

When things get tough: Sometimes you will need extra time to complete some tasks as to raise your level, we understand and if you need longer than 24 weeks, which is the minimum, then we will allow time at no extra cost. The Rio Branco concurso is not like an other concurso in Brazil and candidates need a different form of help and guidance.  Maybe the concurso is announced and then we have to change the rythmn of the course or even move you to the TPS to pass the first section of the exam.


The course is run by Prof Shaun and is our most successful and traditional course. We have helped prepare student who have passed the concurso and are currently diplomats today.


Having prepared many students for Rio Branco we allow more time for the students to complete the course. We know there will be a time you need to say “I need to take a week to rest’. Stress and tension will prevent you from progressing so on this online course we allow you a few weeks ‘down time’. It is a necessary part of learning and we our experience has found you will need a short managable break. This may sound strange but online students need to know we are thinking of your learning process first and our experience have founf this understanding invaluable.

Rest-assured, Central English knows how to prepare CACD candidates and appreciates what it is to study online. CACD is one of the toughest exams in Brazil and we know what it takes to get the top English scores. We have a TPS course which students on this course have a 50% discount and there is a Phase 3 course when the candidate passes to this phase.

Here is a further explanation: The course structure has three overall phases.

The course videos are all recorded for you to watch them whenever it is convenient for you. You can watch them as many times as you wish. The exercises are also open to you and you will have plenty of time and chance to repeat these exercses nothing will be shut down. You have access to the teacher who will correct your compositions many times before he is happy that you are progressing. This is a fundamental differencial in our course that, as far as we know, no one else offers.

The Language phase

In the first few weeks the student will focus on the main areas of advanced language needed to show the examiner you deserve a high score. We will also teach you a strategy to dramatically improve you vocabulary learning.

The Content phase

This content phase is fundamental as we have seen students who have not passed despite having great English. These candidates did not have the necessary background to attack the composition question correctly. We know it is not just your English that the examiner is marking but your ideas too.

This phase course will help you to answer the question from ‘a ‘higher level of thought’. Through writing, the student must understand the significance of modern international theories and opinions in answering the concurso question. Therefore, this section will build up you knowledge of international theories as well as dramatically improve you English.

Writing phase

In this phase the student will write at least a further 12 compositions. The topics will be based on previous exam and possible new exam questions that are ariising in international relations. Each composition will be marked twice in order for the student to a) correct the difficulties you have shown in your first attempt and b) demonstrate you have understood our suggestions. 

We employ a ‘process’ methodology that will guide you to achieving a high composition score.


In this final phase you’ll find the summary easy, as you have the level to write well already. Here you will learn the techniques to normally get a high score, our lowest score was 11 out of 2o in 2015.

We believe this course will provide you with all of the tools you need to achieve an excellent composition and summary score. It has been designed by teachers who work at the Rio Branco Institute and developed with candidates who have already passed the exam.
