Totul despre CAE/ Writing task

START ENGLISHWatch, listen, speak. Tips and tricks about English.

In this article I would give some advice concerning the Certificate in Advanced English or the CAE. The tasks that you have to perform for the CAE are: Reading, Writing, the Use of English, Listening and Speaking. The focus of my article will be the Use of English test, which includes some grammar and vocabulary exercises. The time frame for this test is an hour.

The tasks are not very difficult and not entirelly based on grammar, because grammar is usually assessed during the other tasks or papers. I noticed that students have difficulties when performing a certain test (the last type of test for the Use of English task). Students are given sets of three sentences in which they have to fill the same word. So there are three sentences that lack the same word. The difficulty is that students have to find just one word, but its meaning can be different in the sentences. Also in a sentence the word can be a noun, in another a verb, sometimes an adjective or else.

A few tips:

First read the sentences thoroughly and compare them from the point of view of the meaning. Firstly you can focus on what kind of word (noun, verb, adjective..) each sentence needs. Secondly you will notice that in one of the sentences the word is rather obvious. If you find the word, check if you can use it in the other two sentences. If not, try to find another one till all three sentences are complete and correct.

We will have more tips in future articles or provided you need more practice, apply for a course.

Nevertheless she is a dreamer on a cloud...As dreams cost nothing... In ordinary days she is a word-weaver for everything and everything that breathes. In the best of days she just follows the seasons by means of bike, skis, or roller-skates.
