Hello everyone!

This year we’re preparing a group of students for the IELTS exam. We’ve already started preparing different parts of the test. Now we’re focusing on the writing tasks and we’re starting with writing task 1, which consists of describing a chart. Alto uh it’s not difficult, they aren’t used to doing it, so they need some training. I attach two useful links below to help them with this writing task.

Hope you’ll find them useful!

Hi everyone,

Here you have a link to a website we will be using in class in order to practice for the Cambridge exams. Those who are taking KET and PET should try to finish a few reading tests. You get the feedback straight away so you can correct your mistakes. Give it a good use!

Hello everyone!
It’s less than a month for the PET test, so any help to prepare it is welcome. I’ve prepared some tips to prepare part 3 of the writing test. I send it attached in case you’d use it as well with your students.
Have fun,

Hi folks,

In the following website students might reinforce key vocabulary related to a topic they choose. It might be useful to practice KET or PET key vocabulary. They may repeat and practice pronunciation.
