PAPER 1. Part 1 Three themed texts with 2 multiple-choice questions on each text. Test focus: Part 1 requires words and Part 2 requires words. Part 1 One compulsory task based on given input. Tasks will always include an element of persuasion. Part 2 One task from a choice of four. Question 5 is always based on set texts. Part 1 A multiple-choice cloze of approximately words containing 12 gaps and followed by 12 four-option multiple- choice answers. Words must be formed to complete 10 gaps using the given prompt words.

All parts are heard twice. Part 1 Three short unrelated exchanges with two multiple-choice questions for each.

One of the examiners acts as Interlocutor and the other one as Assessor. Part 1 A conversation between the Interlocutor and each candidate.

Each candidate is given 3 visual stimuli with questions. The candidates are given spoken instructions with written and visual stimuli, which are used in a decision-making task. PART 1 1 hour 15 minutes You are going to read three extracts which are all concerned in some way with sports. There may be 9. And to make it even sparkle and you teellthe need t: A glvenawhmmsboundtogetyourpuse before they hit that brick wall that H: Fr 1prrr?

Street luge riders lie down boots. B have seen the sport become progressively more dangerous. C seem to thrive on the danger involved in the sport. D believe the sport is often unfairly labeled as too dangerous.

BoTh are games of great skill involving balls and bats, but with This crucial difference; baseball is exciting and when you go home at The end of. I'm joking, of course. Cricket is a wonderful game, full of deliciously scattered micro-moments of real action. I had This brought home To me many years ago in England when i went out onto a football pitch with a couple of guys To knock a ball around. But of course if was like heading a bowling ball. C show how different they are to each other.

D explain his reasons for liking them. B he chose to head the ball instead of kicking it. C he had overestimated his sporting talent. Also, the ability to write sensibly under extreme pressure is essential if you aspire to cover major events live. What's it like being a sports feature writer on a national newspaper? Andrew Baker shares his experience of sports journalism.

Perhaps the best part of being a sports journalist is travelling to interesting places and meeting interesting people. Often, these are not the PR-protected megastars, but the passionate individuals who can tell you what is so special about their sport and, if you are lucky, give you some first—hand experience.

B learning how to express ideas quickly and clearly. C gaining knowledge of the practical details of journalism. D learning how to deal with the stress associated with journalism. A the chance to meet famous people B the necessity of personal participation C the satisfaction gained from contact with enthusiasts D the fervour and dedication of some people he meets PART 2 You are going to read an extract from a magazine article.

Six paragraphs have been removed from the extract. Choose USE. From 30, ft. But get closer and the cracks begin to emerge. Dancing by helicopter above the mouth of the Jakobshavn Glacier, near the western coast of Greenland, you can make out veins of.

Sail close and you'll find that these seemingly permanent cathedrals of ice, some ft. They're fighting a war and they appear to be losing. If all the ice on Greenland were to melt tomorrow, is global sea levels would rise more than 20 ft.

Though no one thinks that will happen anytime soon, what keeps glaciologists awake at night is that thinking is not the same as knowing — and no one can say with certainty what Green and's fate will be. I got a firsthand look at such heroism this summer when I joined a team of international researchers led by from the paragraphs A-G the one which fits each gap Dahl-Jensen believes that with enough information, they will be able to project forward and understand just how vulnerable Greenland is to future melting.

And then I wonder, just how much time do Greenland and the rest f, of us have before it's too late? That may be up to us - and the heroes we choose to follow. A Given that the U. A full climatic record of the Eemian has never been constructed, but over the next several summers, the NEEM researchers hope to harvest cores that will help them track the state of the ice throughout that era, when Greenland was warm enough to actually be green.

Depth is time, and the lower you go, the further back in history you travel. As ice formed in Greenland, year after cold year, bits of atmosphere were trapped in the layers. Drilling into the ice and fishing out samples — ice cores — that contain tiny bubbles of that ancient air can reveal the temperature, the concentration of greenhouse gases, even the ambient dust from the year that layer was formed.

It's easy to misunderstand all of this. Climate change itself isn't a bad thing; it isn't even unusual. Take a geological step back, and you can see that our climate has always changed, alternating just within the past several hundred thousand years between ice ages, when glaciers covered much of the Northern Hemisphere, to eras warmer than our own. That's why researchers like Dorthe Dahl- Jensen, stationed on a barren speck of land near the heart of Greenland's ice sheet, are considered a hero for the environment.

His work there involves decoding the island's climatic history. As Jakobshavn gives way to the fjord, a stadium—size iceberg suddenly implodes, disintegrating like a collapsing skyscraper.

Sadly, Greenland is the front line in humanity's battle against climate change. The warming that is easy to dismiss elsewhere is undeniable on this ,sq. More and more -of Greenland, whose frozen expanses are a living remnant of the last ice age, disappears each year, with as much as billion metric tons of glacier vanishing annually. Look for any grammatical or logical clues which can help you place the missing paragraphs in the right gaps. For questions , choose the answer A, B, C or D which you think fits best according to the text.

My own inspiration to become a historical biographer came in rather less elevated circumstances, as a teenager one rainy Oxford afternoon: I began to read Lytton Strachey's EminentVictorians, and was in particular fascinated by his essay on Cardinal Manning. This was going to be the life for me! Once back at school I plunged into further research in the library. A very different picture emerged. Nevertheless I never forgot my original sense of being transported into a world more vivid than my own.

An ability to convey this sensation is, I believe, at the heart of the matter. If you, the biographer, don't thrill to your subject, you can hardly in all fairness expect the reader to do so.

In a sense not of course the commercial sense the choice of subject is irrelevant so long as it meets that requirement.

CAE & CPE -Grammar - Advanced English

You could say that I was extremely lucky to choose Mary Queen of Scots for my first foray since there proved to be a world-wide public for the troubles of the ill-fated Queen.

But you could argue equally that I made my own luck. Nor was success fore- ordained. It was, after all, the leading publisher Mark Bonham—Carter of then Collins who said to me when I confessed my project, "They say that all books on Mary Queen of Scots sell and no books on South America do", before adding with a laugh, "Perhaps yours will be the exception.

In the , so-called narrative biography was said to be out of fashion. Mary Queen of Scots was an early beneficiary from the fact that the public continued to have an appetite for it, so long as the research was felt to be solid.

The actual research for a biography — now that's a whole other matter. Obviously it is every researcher's dream to discover such papers, and their discovery once again may makea project commercial which would not otherwise be so.

At the same time I would issue a caveat about hitherto unpublished documents. HUDs are not in themselves more valuable than the printed sources — it's a historical coincidence that one set has become known early on, the other not. One needs to evaluate them even more closely. Here I speak from personal experience. I blazoned my finds across the text: Where the perils and pleasures of writing historical biography are concerned, there are two perils which seem to me to raise points of princip e.

The first is the peril of anachronistic judgements. For exampIe, in the 6th century line 6 more or less everybody took astrology seriously and more or less everybody enjoyed a jolly afternoon out to see the bears baited. It's no good dismissing the former as meaningless and cringing from the latter as disgusting.

I would further cite the peril of hindsight. And the pleasures? Principal among them however is the opportunity to lead a life less ordinary. As a biographer, I can rule i over kingdoms, lead the ' cavalry into battle, patronise the great artists of the past and all without leaving my chair.

A There was a surprising amount of information available. E B It was not possible to take everything she read as fact. C It was difficult to interpret the true meaning of what she read. Read the text extremely carefully in order to distinguish between as we: B it did not guarantee her books success.

C There are already too many books written on it. D It was a wise choice for her first biography. B researchers must be careful to check all facts thoroughly. C research material can include inaccurate information. D extensive reading is crucially important. A They are difficult to obtain as their discovery is down to chance. B Their overall significance to the book must be carefully considered. C Their use could result in diminished commercial success for a book.

D It should not be assumed that they are authentic. B being uninformed about sixteenth century customs and practices. D focusing only on the negative side of life in the sixteenth century.

B become immersed in history. C discover unpublished documents. D establish historical truth. PART4 You are going to read some reviews of wildlife books. For questions , choose from the reviews A-G.

Tests contain helpful exam tips and reminders, while Tests 5 and 6 are like real exam papers, with no guidance, for further exam practice. The Teacher's Book contains all the Student's Book material, together with over-printed answers, model. The CAE examination can also serve as a useful step in the development of the language skills necessary for the CPE examination.

It doesn't sound too hazardous, does it? The real danger comes from the steep, winding road that. And to make it even more risky, the use of brakes is strictly forbidden! These riders are not ashamed to take pleasure in risking everything in. You might be wondering how they stopbefore they hit that brick wall that Ir?

B learning how to express ideas quickly and clearly. D learning how to deal with the stress associated with journalism. You are going to read an extract from a magazine article.

Dandng by helicopter above the mouth of the Jakobshavn Glader, near the western coast of Greenland, you can make out veins of the purest blue melt water. NEEM stands for North Greenland Eemlan Ice Drilling the acronym is Danish, as are the leaders of the project , and the scientists are digging deep into the Greenland ice more than a mile and a half deep to be precise - to try to understand its pedigree.

Those Icebergs are spat out into Di';. They're fighting a war and they. If all the lee on Greenland were to melt tomorrow, global sea levels would rise more than 20 ft.

A Oahl-Jensen believes that with enough information, they wlll be able to project forward and understand just how vulnerable Greenland is to future melting.

E I watch as a plume of mist fills the air where the Iceberg once was, while the fjord chums on. And then I wonder, just how much time do Greenland and the rest of us have before it's too late? That may be up to us and the heroes we choose to follow. A Given that the U.

E It's that type of confidence that serves as our light in the dimatic darkness, living proof that hope hasn't vanished.
