Speaking
As with Writing, give yourself mock tasks and run through them in your head.

Online videos are always worth a look, but should be watched critically. Give yourself a focus. How well do they link? What expressions do they use to interact? Are they varying their vocab or repeating? What would you do differently?

Writing
Analyse previous or online questions for keywords and try some planning, without actually writing complete answers.
Use our Functions and Vocabulary prep method.
Make sure you have a set of linking expressions, and for Advanced and Proficiency that you've got enough at varying levels of formality.

C1/Advanced on Mondays: Speaking and Writing Advice

Do you have a pet?

Untitled

We recommend getting an Exam Pet or two!

Exam pets are expressions, phrases or grammar structures you look after especially carefully. And...you ALWAYS try to use them in each activity where you are speaking or writing.

It could be...

  • Five (say) common phrasal verbs - and you always try to use at least two.
  • A couple of bits of functional language - for opinions, or thanking or making suggestions
  • A particular grammar structure that's very useful but not so easy to use.

Whatever it is - always use it. Set your own rules and create your own habits. Choose your structures soon!
