Deep wisdom from ‘Through the Looking Glass’

"Read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction."

"... you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"

"Take care of the sounds and the sense will take care of itself."

Advanced+ Exam Resources

This entry is for those preparing for advanced+ level exams.  Apart from conventional CAE, CPE, IELTS etc. courses, the following sites can be of great help in mastering all the four skills.

  1.  Basically, Use of English and Reading. Writing is also available. A wide range of free activities, yet  the support available for subscribers is beyond any expectations. Indeed, the site is one of the best.
  2. Listening + pre/while/after listening activities, also helps to enrich topic vocabulary.
  3. IELTS speaking, equally valuable for other speaking exams in terms of how to structure the long-term presentation. (video podcasts+downloadable transcripts and study notes )
  4. Speaking (Cambridge format), useful tips, everyday vocabulary quiz, both free and subscribers' options. 
With almost everything available on the Internet, the list above is by no means final and can be regarded as an emergency list, a sort of first aid kit, as undoubtedly there are plenty of other decent projects to lead the candidates through the exams.

Wishing everyone the best of luck and the most successful performance in the exam.
