Workshop “Get ready for the ch-ch-changes to revised Cambridge English: First and Advanced”
Abstract: Are you already preparing or thinking of preparing candidates for Cambridge English exams? Then you should find out about the key changes to the revised Cambridge English: First and Advanced exams starting in 2015. We will be looking at those changes as well as the unique use of the Cambridge Learner Corpus while trying out corresponding activities from especially Complete Advanced, First and First for Schools. NB: the exams remain, of course, the internationally recognised Cambridge EnglishExams covering all five skills of the Common European Framework. Plus ça change…
