Let’s Complete the ch-ch-changes to Cambridge English: First and First for Schools

If you are preparing or thinking of preparing candidates for Cambridge English exams, then you have probably heard about the changes to the revised Cambridge English: First and Advanced exams. We’ll be looking at the Why? and the What? of the key changes while trying out corresponding activities from Complete First and First for Schools as well as Testbank for optional online exam practice. NB: The exams remain, of course, the internationally recognised Cambridge English Exams covering all five skills of the Common European Framework. Plus ça change

Successful writing: exploring the effective staging of B1 and B2 Writing tasks

This presentation will present a principled framework for the staging of classroom writing activity for B1 and B2 learners and look at practical examples of tasks that meet staged objectives. Reference to criteria identified in the Cambridge Common Scale of Writing will be made throughout and we will also focus on the relationship between writing work and other skills work done in class and ways of closely integrating writing input in the classroom with extended writing work done out of class.
