Cambridge BEC Preliminary

This is the blog post for the exam preparation course for the Cambridge BEC preliminary exam. It's where you will find all the information that you need about the course.


In class

We'll follow the lesson plan.


At home

Do the homework that I set you and try to watch television programmes in English.


Tips from the lessons

  • Google images can be a good way of learning vocabulary such as 'trade fair'.

  • Record yourself practising the speaking test. Listen to it and think about what you did well and what you could improve.

  • Start by saying 'I've chosen'

  • Imagining something real, such as a car factory, can help you to think of ideas.

  • Remember to smile!
