This is a fully-integrated course designed to prepare students for the Cambridge First Certificate examination. The two-part structure makes the course suitable for both long-term and short-term courses. Also included are exam practice sections for vocabulary, use of English and interview papers. A writing bank containing model texts and detailed guidance on all potential tasks reinforces and develops writing skills and provides a useful section for reference and revision. The functions bank presents functional language clearly and concisely and can be used as a reference by students before, during or after the communication activities.
