What does Candidate B have to do? I want them to stop talking to me. Will you stay here with me, please? Part 2 2 Look at the exam task. Why is it appropriate?
Exam task For questions 1—8, read the text below and think of the word which best fits each gap. Use only one word in each gap. In 1 days, parents often chose their future son-in-law, and when they introduced William to her it was certainly not love at 2 sight. Although tall and handsome, he was twelve years older than her and, she suspected, rather arrogant.
In fact she was not really him at all, but when he proposed to her attracted 3 she accepted rather than upset her parents. She soon realised what a huge mistake she 4 made. His bossy, impatient manner quickly started 5 on her nerves, and even when they were out walking together she never felt 6 ease with him. She tried her best to make the relationship work, but he made no effort at all and she felt he was 7 her for granted.
Eventually she decided to break her engagement. Some 8 years later, Emily would write that it was the best decision she had ever made. Which answers complete fixed phrases from Exercise 1, and which complete past tenses? But then he realised there was someone else there.
In the meantime, I had a coffee. Instantly, a loud alarm went off. Part 2 article Page 91 2 Look at the exam task and answer these questions. Exam task You have seen the following announcement on an international website for young people: Had a great night out?
If so, tell us about it! We will put the best articles on our site next week. Send us your article, and you could have readers all over the world! Write your article in — words. Give examples. Out at night Have you ever felt that birthdays were more fun when you were a kid? I certainly did on my 18th as I sat at home watch TV. Sure, people had given me some nice presents, but somehow the old excitement was missing.
Then, to my surprise, the doorbell rang. The moment I opened the door and saw my friends standing there my mood changed. You can imagine how delighting I was! I quickly got ready and before long we were in a taxi. First they took me shopping, buying me any clothes I wanted, and after that we went bowling. For once I actually won! Then we had a delicious pizza before going to a fashionable nightclub, where we spent hours dancing and meeting with people, some of them quite famous.
Eventually I arrived home, but just as I was going to bed I received a text message. It was from one of the celebrities I had been talking to earlier, inviting me out for a dinner the next day. I think you will agree it had been quite an evening! When you have finished, check your work as in Unit 1 Writing Exercise 5 on page Exam tip In an article, you can give your own opinions using expressions from Exercise 4 on page In the first, at 8 p.
Sadly, I lost company with Lucas when he went to live in Australia. Carl is always making stupid jokes and it keeps on my nerves. Please go away and leave me only. The I first met Carmen, I knew we would be good friends. The kitchen looked terrible, but before we were making good progress tidying it up.
I looked up at the desert sky and, to my , I saw snow starting to fall. Some words can go into more than one group. Before you listen, think of words or phrases that the speakers might use. Then, the second time you listen, check that options A—H match exactly what they say.
Exam task You will hear five different people talking about going to famous places. For questions 1—5, choose from the list A—H what each speaker says about their visit to each site. Use the letters only once. There are three extra letters which you do not need to use.
A Visitors are not permitted to walk inside the site. The key words are not permitted and walk. For each of options B—H, underline the key words and note down some expressions with similar or opposite meanings. C A very large animal tried to attack us. D Motor vehicles are not allowed to enter the site. E It was very expensive to enter the site. F We respected the wishes of the local people. G The guidebook I was carrying was very useful. Speaker 1 1 Speaker 2 2 Speaker 3 3 Speaker 4 4 Speaker 5 5 Exam tip Be careful if words in one option are mentioned by more than one speaker.
Only one of them can be the correct answer. Then choose the correct option in these sentences. Say why it is right and why the other one is wrong. Correct the mistakes. Lisa: Are you sure? I think I saw the 9. Lisa: Have you tried phoning her? More than one answer is possible, and in some cases negative forms are needed. For questions 2—6, choose the answer A, B, C or D which you think fits best according to the text. Why are the other options wrong?
Then do the rest of the exam task. Exam tip If a question asks about a particular word or phrase, work out the meaning by looking for examples, explanations, and similar or contrasting expressions in the text around the chosen word. Francis believes that although some consumers are now actively seeking out these types of holidays, the majority are still not aware of the growing number of choices.
While many insist that the only truly green option is not to fly or to stay at home, those who still want to get away have an increasing number of choices available to help them lessen the environmental impact and give more to their host community. The Green Traveller website promotes holidays that can be reached by land, as well as offering plenty of tips about having a greener holiday wherever you decide to go.
Its managing director, Richard Hammond, agrees that interest in this kind of travel has grown. Last year, First Choice added a Greener Holidays brochure into its programme, and tour operators now often list accommodation-only or activity-only prices so people can choose their own means of transport, such as travelling by rail rather than by air. Hotels are increasingly keen to talk up their ecological achievements. While these are no doubt based on good environmental principles, schemes like planting a tree for every five towels reused, for instance, are unlikely to make much difference overall.
Francis believes that consumers are becoming more aware of such tokenism from hotels and tour operators that may not have the best interests of the community or the planet true to their hearts. Can you think of some others? A Take a train or a bus to get there instead of a plane. B Do as little environmental damage as you can there. C Make sure your holiday there is completely green. D Look elsewhere for advice on greener holidays. A the destination B the team of writers C the selection process D the website 5 Some firms believe that people are now more likely to choose a holiday A which includes the cost of travel in the price.
B in a place that serves food from that area. C somewhere that produces no waste material. D that is organised by a traditional travel company. Then choose the correct options to complete the dialogue. Lucas: So how was the trip to the coast? Lucas: I know what you mean. I slept most of the way. Which other adverbs of degree are possible in each case except item 5?
Part 3 Page 99 3 Look at the exam task. Then check your answers in the Speaking guide on page What do you have to do? Imagine that your town wants to attract more tourists. Here are some things that may help make a town more attractive to visitors.
Look at the task and talk to each other about how these things could help bring in more tourists. The first time you listen, answer these questions. Then listen again to check your answers. Right, 1 start? I think 2 quite a good one. So 3 the next one — the carnival? Talking about summer, 4 have the boat rides, too. Yes, maybe. And 5 including the bus tour? Either way, 6 very popular. Which two shall we choose? Do the exam task, using expressions from Exercise 6. Discuss this with your partner.
Then decide which preposition to, with, of follows each of the expressions below. Things that may help make a town more attractive to visitors. It might not be very popular with visitors. A for B by C off D of 5 Working in a museum is a less tiring job compared working in a restaurant.
A by B to C of D on 6 Cameras enable the police to keep an eye everyone. Decide what the text is about. Exam task For questions 1—8, read the text below and decide which answer A, B, C or D best fits each gap. For four days and nights, normal city life is 1 by music and dancing, mixing European, African and Latin American influences in what is possibly the most culturally 2 carnival on Earth. With them they bring a huge range of musical and dance styles, and some 5 amazing costumes.
From the moment the mayor officially opens the Carnival, the action never stops, with events 7 from colourful parades to lively street theatre. By night there are spectactular firework displays and many of the younger people seem 8 of dancing round the clock. Does it all make sense? In what ways is it similar or different to the one in Barranquilla? First of all, For another thing, For one thing, In the first place, Lastly, Next, On balance, To conclude, 2 Look at the exam task instructions and answer these questions.
Who will read your essay? What question must you answer? What points must you include? What must you add to those points? Exam task In your English class you have been talking about the advantages and disadvantages of taking holidays near home rather than travelling abroad. Now, your English teacher has asked you to write an essay. Write an essay using all the notes and give reasons for your point of view.
Is it better to have holidays near home rather than travel abroad? Notes Write about: 1 which is cheaper 2 which is better for the environment 3 your own idea Write your essay in — words. You must use grammatically correct sentences with accurate spelling and punctuation in an appropriate style. Which paragraph covers each of the points? Which addition links, e. What other addition links do you know? Some people believe we should not travel long distances for our holidays, that we ought to spend our free time in our own country, enjoying the local countryside.
I, however, disagree. To begin with, budget flights and package holidays enable ordinary people to travel to exotic locations that previous generations could only have dreamt of visiting. Inexpensive student railcards also make it possible to take trains to exciting international destinations. In fact, it often costs less to travel abroad than at home. Secondly, green holidays in distant countries are now widely available.
Much of the journey can be done by ship, train or bus. Once there, accommodation may be in tents or in country houses that use little energy, with local travel by horse, by bicycle or on foot. Finally, it is natural for young people to want to see more of the world, meet people in different cultures and understand the problems that other societies face.
They cannot do this by staying in their home town. To sum up, I am absolutely convinced that holidays abroad are positive experiences that can be both economical and environmentally friendly. A trip B travel C voyage D journey across the fields and up a narrow mountain We went track.
A hiking B travelling C touring D hitchhiking To go on holiday, the most environmentally friendly of transport is the train. A dealers B supervisors C operators D controllers 2 Complete the second sentence so that it means the same as the first sentence.
Use modal verbs. Later today it might snow heavily. I stayed at home yesterday because I 4 Fill in the gaps with suitable prepositions. Passengers on the small boat. Before you set off, you. The taxi driver. After nearly a year working non-stop for not much pay, I was fed up 1 my job and I was feeling in need 2 a good break. The sort 3 holiday I had in mind was a week on a sunny beach somewhere, so I booked myself a cheap flight along 4 six nights in a bed and breakfast next to the sea.
On the day of the journey, I was aiming 5 catching the 8. I knew I was supposed 7 check in two hours before the flight, so instead 8 waiting any longer and probably missing it, I jumped into a taxi. That was much quicker than going by bus, but the trouble 9 taking taxis to the airport is that they are incredibly expensive. So when I got to check-in and was informed 10 a three-hour delay to my flight, I realised I had wasted quite a lot of my hard-earned cash.
Use some of these words. In what ways are they different? Quickly read the text and answer this question. What does the writer dislike about going to pop concerts? A B C D the quality of the music nowadays the way some members of the audience behave the attitude of the performers to the audience the poor organisation of these events 4 Read the second paragraph of the text. Exam task 4 You are going to read an article about going to pop concerts.
Fiona Sturges welcomes this change in attitudes. At its best, live music can be a life-changing experience. When everything goes right, the music coming from the stage can lift the soul and make you forget your surroundings. It was a sit-down gig and I had a seat about ten rows from the front.
They were absolutely shocked. When it comes to audience interaction, every art form requires a certain amount of appropriacy although there are no formal rules. Actually, at one city-centre venue, posters on the walls forbid gig-goers from talking during performances altogether. And drinks should be consumed by their owner and not spilt down the back of the person in front of them. The habits of gig-goers vary according to the type of music being performed.
From the hard-rocking gigs of my teenage years, I frequently emerged soaked in drinks and sweat, and thought nothing of standing in the middle of a crowd for hours. As for the talkative ones in the audience, I say pour cold water on the lot of them. Exam tip Before choosing one of the sentences A—G, make sure that verbs and nouns agree in tense, person or number with the main text.
A This noise went on for around twenty minutes before my patience ran out. C These days, though, I am much less keen on all this. D If this reaction was a bit strong, the emotion behind it was understandable. E I always walk out whenever they start doing that.
F Some unwritten ones, however, do exist. G Talking, for example, is acceptable but not to the point where the strangers next to you are forced to listen to details of your private life. Have you chosen a letter for every question? Phrasal verbs with on 6 Look at these verbs in the text and sentences A—G.
What does each one mean? For questions 1—7, choose the best answer A, B or C. A create sculptures B paint using colours C draw with a pencil 2 What disappointed Sonia about the exhibition in the art gallery? A not enough people saw her drawings B there was a bad review of her drawings C nobody bought any of her drawings Part 4 Page 96 1 Why are online videos so popular?
Which have you enjoyed the most? When you listen, think of an answer in your own words. Then listen to the first part of the recording and answer these questions. Exam tip Remember that the questions follow the order of the information that you hear, and each part of the recording relates to a particular question.
When you hear the recording, listen for expressions with similar or opposite meanings to these words. B the gallery refused to hold another exhibition of her work. C her friend had already promoted his photos that way. A Her work had more artistic quality. B The film was more professionally made. C It did not show a completed picture. A rather uncomfortable B highly delighted C quite relieved 6 What happened as a result of the success of her videos?
A She drew more and more pictures. B She began sleeping less at night. C She started to forget what time it was. A She replied angrily to them. B She started to become depressed. C She stopped reading them. Then check your answers. Does the meaning change? They agreed to show some of my drawings. He never actually got round to doing it. I started going to the opposite extreme. I started to become a bit too obsessed. Cinema audiences still rising The latest cinema audience figures, which appear 1 show an increase of twelve per cent on the same period last year, seem 2 indicate that the economic downturn has not stopped people 3 go to watch their favourite films.
I expect the figures will keep on 6 rise. Use as many verbs as you can from Exercises 1—3. Then answer the questions below. Part 4 4 Put these expressions into four groups: 1 Asking for opinions, 2 Asking for reasons, 3 Giving reasons, 4 Giving examples.
Why do you think so? What about nouns? The DVD was too expensive for me to buy. What do you think? Is that because The main reason is that Could you tell me why? What are your feelings about this? Any particular reason? How do you feel about Then rewrite sentences 2—5 using too and enough with for in the same ways. Page 1. Which of questions 1—6 does the teacher ask? Which student do you think does this part of the Speaking test better? Exam tip The questions in Part 4 are not written down, so listen to the examiner carefully.
The examiner asks the candidates some of the questions in Exercise 5. Examiners should be polite and helpful in their comments. My eyes have been getting sore since I began reading a lot of texts online last year. Note down the changes you make. Exam task For questions 1—6, complete the second sentence so that it has a similar meaning to the first sentence, using the word given. Do not change the word given.

Have you read a good novel recently? If so, would you like to write a review of it? Include information on the setting, story and main characters, and say whether you would recommend the book to other readers.
Write your review in — words. If so, in which sentence? When a cargo plane crashes in the outback, pilot Don Radcliffe and his teenage daughter Judy quickly realise it was no accident. They then face a struggle to survive in the desert as a criminal gang tries to find the illegal cargo — and them.
It is a struggle in which Judy soon finds herself having to take the lead. The plot is well constructed and as the story develops it becomes fast-paced and quite gripping. The main characters, particularly Judy, are convincing, and for such a short book there is an impressive mixture of themes that range from dishonesty, greed and selfishness, to courage, family values and concern for native culture.
This is a book that I could not put down, and I read it right through in a few hours. If you enjoy a tense thriller which is quick and easy to read, I suggest you choose this one. My advice is to avoid this … and instead … This Include some descriptive adjectives. BEEN last autumn. Maria 3 Nathan was determined to pay for all our drinks.

As you read, look for words, phrases and sentences that express the same ideas as the key words in the questions.
Underline the words, phrases or sentences that tell you the right answers. You may find it helpful to read the questions first, then scan each part of the text. If so, there will be extra spaces next to these questions. Exam task You are going to read an article in which four people talk about their careers.
Which person financial adviser legal assistant 1 Look at the photos. There is of course shift work, but the days of junior doctors having to live in and be on call all night are, I was happy to find, long gone. I came here after I graduated in Economics and took to the work straightaway. And although the basic salary is possibly a little below average, from next year there will also be a few extras such as fully paid holidays in Miami and a car allowance, as well as a company lunch every month at one of the best restaurants in town.
Phrasal verbs with take 6 Match these phrasal verbs in the text with meanings 1—8. And in those early days I had a little trouble meeting deadlines, though as I gained experience I quickly got over that. I spent two years there, and then took up my current post in Local Government as a Trainee Legal Assistant.
I have particular responsibility for public transport, for instance giving legal advice on any new schemes or proposed changes in the bus, tram or suburban rail networks. The salary here is reasonable, although in the present economic climate, with such huge cuts to public spending, that may not be the case for much longer.

I am aged 19 and in my second year of a Mechanical Engineering course. Before deciding on City College I looked at the advantages and disadvantages of many academic institutions, and I therefore feel capable of offering advice to young people who are at that stage now.
The work sounds extremely interesting. Could you please tell me how much I would be paid, and whether training would be necessary? I would be available to work evenings as all my lectures are in the afternoons and consequently I can study in the mornings. I have always enjoyed assisting others and last year I worked as a volunteer at a book fair. Details of this, plus personal details including qualifications, are shown in my curriculum vitae, which I enclose.
If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be able to attend an interview any morning.

How long did it take you to get better? Draw a line in pencil with the question number next to it, as in the example for question 1. Find the answer to each question by looking at the part of the text that you have marked. What would you enjoy most?
For questions 1—6, choose the answer A, B, C or D which you think fits best according to the text. Then say why you chose that order. Otherwise the wrong answers might mislead you. Dr Percival, the surgeon, thought it went well, but Kathy would need to rest in bed for three weeks with a bandage over her eyes.
In those weeks Kathy had plenty of time to think about what she had done. There were moments of doubt, almost panic, when she asked herself if she had done the right thing. She thought she had long since put away the foolish hopes for sight she had once held as a girl. Yet here she was, hoping like a girl again. She felt afraid, yes, but also excited at the thought of entering a world that would be totally unfamiliar to her, a world where she could see.
It would be like being born a second time. She wondered what colour would be like. Although it was a word she had often used and heard before, she had never experienced colour. She just could not picture it in her mind, no matter how hard she tried. Kathy gave up trying and waited patiently for the day her bandages would be removed. The day came. He turned to her and spoke. Are you ready? Dr Percival held a small light in front of her eyes as a nurse slowly and carefully removed her bandage.
Then Kathy sat up with her eyes still closed. Slowly she opened them and stared at the light. Quickly, she turned her face away. What was that? Congratulations — you can see! I thought there would be more to it than this I mean It will take time for your eyes to get used to seeing colours and shapes. Your brain has to do a lot of sorting out of new information that it has never had to deal with before.
The main thing is that you can see! And underneath her bandages she was crying. Over the next few weeks Kathy was progressively allowed to use her eyes more often. Soon she could tell dark from light, then she could recognise colours and shapes. But, for a while, she found it very difficult to deal with the huge amounts of extra information that her new sense was giving her every day.
It was particularly hard to tell the difference between near and far objects. She would reach out for those across the room as if they were near to her, or she would walk into close objects without realising how close they were. But Dr Percival was patient. Kathy was taken on walks around the hospital gardens, taken for drives in the car, and shown films and television programmes.
Her eyes were gently exercised until they worked well. She would see ordinary things as objects of great beauty — the black and white squares on a chess board, the shape of a hand, the colours of a flower. Sounds, for the first time in her life, took second place.
Colours and shapes now filled her mind with pleasure beyond her powers to describe. A She had the impression she had been born again. B She was looking forward to new experiences. C She wished that she had not had the operation. D She was glad that she was still a young girl. A She changed her position in bed. C She looked at the light from the windows. D She immediately opened her eyes. A She felt it was much as she had expected. B She was disappointed it went out so quickly. C She found it an uncomfortable experience.
D She was delighted she could see so much. A She could not understand everything the doctor told her. B She found it difficult to judge the distance of things. C She quickly became tired as a result of looking at everything. D She was unable to distinguish between certain colours.
B Kathy had a second, smaller, operation. C Kathy went outside with the hospital staff. A She felt that she was gradually becoming much more confident as a person. B She began to enjoy what she had previously not even been able to imagine. C She found that seeing and hearing were now equally important to her.
D She came to realise that there would always be limits to what she could see. Underline the key words and answer these questions. Example: You hear a woman telling a neighbour in the street about a road accident she has just seen. What happened? A An ambulance took the cyclist to hospital. B The cyclist was uninjured. C Someone gave the cyclist first aid. Remember that there are no pictures in the exam.
In each case, underline the key words. Then answer as many of the questions from Exercise 1 as you can. Exam tip Once the recording finishes and you have chosen your answer, forget about that question and focus on the next one. Exam task You will hear people talking in six different situations. For questions 1—6, choose the best answer A, B or C. Who is he? How does the man feel now? A angry B amused C relieved 2 You hear a woman talking to a friend in the street.
Where is she going now? A to the hospital B to the cinema C to the shops 5 3 You hear a patient talking on the phone. What does he dislike about the hospital? A the quality of the food B the amount of noise C the medical treatment You hear a young woman talking to a friend about a cross-country race. What do they agree about? A He should take up swimming now. B He should continue to run every day.
C He should withdraw from the race. A to complain about something B to make an appointment C to ask for information 2. Decide what the situation is and how many speakers you will hear. For example: Why What is the correct answer? What do the phrasal verbs mean? Who has more than one sister? Many young men in Newtown, where he grew up, are involved in crime. Who had never seen a match before? Who had only seen boring matches before?
Then match the phrasal verbs you have made with meanings a—j. Will you up, please? In which sentence could we leave out which? Use who, which, when, where and whose, adding commas where necessary.
