Ways to Practice at Home

Reading Practice

One of the best ways to practice for your language exams is to read a lot of non-fiction texts – find articles from a broadsheet newspaper, e.g. The Guardian, The Independent or The Telegraph. (print or online) that interest you.

Once you have found an article you are interested in, consider the following:

  1. What are the key points of the article?
  2. Summarise the article in 100 words.
  3. Look at the language used – what words stand out? What effect do they have?
