Compact Key for Schools

Compact Key for Schools is a focused, 50 - 60 hour course for the Cambridge English: Key (KET) for Schools exam.

The course is designed to maximise the performance of school-age learners. It features twelve units covering the core Key for Schools (KET) 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 structures necessary for the Reading and Writing paper. A2-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.
