Exam Focus

  • Cambridge-style CAE Listening: Part 2
In this part of the Cambridge Advanced Exam, you hear a recording and complete sentences with a word from the recording. But it’s not as easy as it may appear; the expressions and grammatical structure in the written sentence are different from the equivalent in the recording, so you have to listen very carefully to select the correct word for the sentence.
The following exercise has 6 questions, but there are 8 questions in the official exam
