The course is designed to help students prepare effectively for the FCE. It offers practice in all papers of the Cambridge English First Certificate Exam: Reading, Use of English, Listening, Speaking and Writing. Task-guidance and up-to-date exam materials are provided. We cover a wide range of typical exam topic areas.
The basic methodology includes both accuracy and fluency-based activities, in-depth treatment of grammar and attention to all four language skills. The following areas are included: practice FCE tests; essential tips explain how to approach each task type and give guidance on typical exam questions; language banks offer students model responses for the Speaking and Writing papers. Students often work individually, in pairs and in small groups.
