Compact Preliminary for Schools

Compact Preliminary for Schools is a focused, 50 - 60 hour course for Cambridge English: Preliminary for Schools, also known as Preliminary English Test (PET).

The course is designed to maximise the performance of school-age learners. It features eight units covering the core Preliminary for Schools topics, vocabulary, grammar and the skills needed for all three exam papers. Two teen-inspired topics in each unit ensure the entire exam syllabus is covered, and can also act as a basis for CLIL-based extension activities and projects. Grammar sections and a Grammar Reference help students build up the accurate language structure necessary for most challenging parts of the Reading and Writing paper, while B1-level vocabulary is targeted, drawing on insights from English Profile, and brought together in a Wordlist based on key vocabulary from the units. ‘Exam tips’, and grammar and vocabulary exercises teach students to avoid common mistakes identified in Cambridge’s unique collection of real exam papers, the Cambridge Learner Corpus.
