    An obvious way to use the Listening Tests is, of course, to ask students to listen to the individual passages and answer the questions. Grammar Structural items can be analysed in a similar fashion. You will hear each listening passage twice. Workbooks, and Teacher's Books are also available.

    In addition, the material is lively and educational. Ask the student to talk a bit about themselves. The warm-up is not assessed. Facilitating peer assessment and a highly unique, interactive approach to study, it will help your students achieve their best. No changes have been made to the recordings. If you already know them, ask them to tell you something about a sport or hobby you know they enjoy, or a project they have recently been doing class which they liked.

    Total marks: Core 7, Extended 8 The conversation itself should last 6—9 minutes. Mark an answer correct when the right information has been extracted from the passage or the correct box ticked. If students have misspelled a word, decide whether they are simply guessing the spelling and writing phonetically. Students have to understand, not just lift or match, to get the answer right. Sometimes grammar or spelling errors occur because students are guessing answers: they have not understood the speaker or the question properly.

Remember, it will not be marked. Paper 6 is an alternative, coursework option. Answers can sometimes be correctly paraphrased in a number of ways.

Candidates must be careful to supply what the question actually asks for and nothing else. Recorded announcements and messages, short situational dialogues and fragments of conversation are used to test these skills.

The Examiner is not there to find out your language mistakes or to test your general knowledge. In both cases, candidates need to be able to understand more complex meanings, opinions and attitudes of the speakers.

Candidates should check that their answers make grammatical and contextual sense — the answers need to fit what is on the printed page.

Ask the students to talk a bit about themselves. What is the best way to use the Listening Tests? The tests will help familiarise students with the format and requirements of the Reading and Writing papers.

Candidates should follow the question very carefully to ensure that it is answered fully where more than one piece of information is asked for. The exam is set at two levels, known as Core and Extended. Candidates must use an appropriate style and register.

Getting answers right depends on understanding properly, not just matching words together, as the questions often use different words and phrases to those used by the speakers on the tape.

Good candidates can use them selectively, and some may choose to write totally without reference to the prompts. The cards include prompts to guide the discussion. Exam tasks are realistic and similar to what students could be expected to meet at work, in training or in academic study.

Structuring the discussion Start the discussion with easy, straightforward questions and then ask more challenging questions as the conversation develops and students grow in confidence.

Under these circumstances, you need to check whether the answer makes enough grammatical and contextual sense in terms of the question and the listening passage.

In both exercises students listen for specific information, and there is an incline of difficulty between the two. Before starting the main part of the assessment, ask the student if they have fully understood the task and if they have any questions they would like to ask.

Dealing with errors Students may make specific grammar and spelling errors in writing their answers. The recordings reflect the pace of speech and range of accents typically used. Good luck! This phase which should last 2—3 minutes is not marked and is included so that candidates have time to get used to the exam situation.

You will be allowed 2—3 minutes preparation time, and you will then take part in a discussion with the Examiner. Deciding on grading When grading, take an objective, balanced and fair view of the complete interview as a piece of communication.

Differentiation of ability is achieved largely through the questions and question format. Students who can recognise a wide range of structures, vocabulary and language functions are likely to do well under exam conditions.

They also provide rewarding and stimulating oral practice in their own right.
