The new Cambridge English: Proficiency exam will be shorter than the previous examination by approximately 2 hours. However, careful exam design means.
One object of this book is to "expose" you to as many variations of modern English as possible and help you to use them yourself in the appropriate circumstances. The second main point I want to make here is that becoming fluent in English does not really depend on learning a lot of more complicated structures than you have studied already. It largely depends on the correct use of structures and the connecting words and phrases that link sentences together.
You will find some of these In the paragraphs above - "that is to say," "for example," "in the first place," "in the same way," and so on. This book tries to demonstrate by examples the use of such phrases so that you will be encouraged to try them out for yourself in your own speech and writing.
Up to now most of the English you have learnt has been selected lor you, especially if you have studied in your own country, rather than in England.
You have learnt the most useful and necessary vocabulary in order to communicate with people in English, and the examinations you may have taken, up to and including Cambridge First Certificate, have been limited to the most commonly used words and expressions. From now on there is hardly any theoretical limit to your vocabulary, though you may find it comforting to know that even the best-educated English people use only 30, of the half-million or so words in the language!
The most important point about new vocabulary, however, is the context. There is no point in looking up words in a dictionary and using them if native English speakers will not understand you. The early s saw the beginnings of a shift in the Cambridge language testing methodology towards a separation of language testing from the testing of literary or cultural knowledge.
In , a new syllabus was proposed which reflected a new emphasis on language-based assessment. The structure of the Certificate of Proficiency in English exam was as follows: Written Candidates must offer a English Language and two other papers chosen from b , c , or d. No candidate may offer more than one of the alternatives in b.
English Language composition and a passage or passages of English with language questions. The choice of subjects set for composition will include some for candidates who are specially interested in commerce. Use of English 3 hours d. Translation from and into English 3 hours Oral a. Dictation, Reading and Conversation. The exam continued to evolve, reflecting thinking and developments in communicative language assessment and second language acquisition SLA.
In , exam time was reduced to less than 6 hours — half the amount of the original exam. Revisions in continued to reflect developments in communicative language assessment, as first evidenced in the and revisions. A paired speaking test was introduced following research into the relative effectiveness of a test with a single candidate or a pair of candidates, with the latter shown to produce a wider range of functional language use.
The exam also introduced wider ranges of: sources in reading and text-based tasks, tasks in the writing paper and real-life contexts in the listening paper. The Use of English paper was subsumed into the Reading paper and the revised exam is now 4 hours in length. Candidates have the choice of taking the Reading and Use of English paper, Writing paper and Listening paper on either a computer or on paper. Candidates are expected to be able to read and understand a range of different texts, e.
Candidates are expected to demonstrate a variety of reading skills including skimming, detailed reading, following an argument, coherence and linking, and looking for specific information.
