Its important to inform students about this.

Speaking: The main purpose is fluency, not grammar accuracy, so encourage your students to interact with
their partners as naturally as possible. Give your students plenty of practice in the use of functions.

Listening: Listening practice is essential for students to understand so make the most of it by using the class
audio CDs at all times.

Writing: Types of writing: see 2017 Types of writing for Teens and Adults on our web site
For further practice you may consult Reading & Writing Targets 1& 2, by V.Evans

behind it, step-by-step teaching notes arranged around reduced-size Students book pages, boxed answer

Please help your students develop their reading skills by encouraging them to read the story and exploit
it through different activities. By no means should you give them just a summary to study by heart.

Oxford Practice Grammar (Basic) by Coe, Harrison and Paterson, Macmillan English Grammar in

exercises including past tense which appear in the book. As for the Oral exam, students will be asked a
few questions using Past Tense in Part A, but not in Part B (Reader).
