After a teensy hiatus here is some extra support for the main problem areas:
- WRITING: http://www.pearsonelt.gr/cosmicb2_downloadables.pdf This is a great resource for writing part 1 so use it very wisely. We have done one of the essays in the Objective classes. There are 5 other essay tasks. Make full use of the preparatory exercises, focus on the task and incorporate some of the key phrases we have looked at. Also check out http://www.rubenvalero.com/english/content/writing-useful-words-and-phrases-fce for a great selection of phrases for each writing task. A helpful hint: create your own lists and you are more likely to remember them.
- PHRASAL VERBS: http://a4esl.org/q/j/ck/fb-phrasalverbs.html This is an interactive activity where you fill in the sentences with the correct particle. On the following site you will find a list of the most common for B1 and B2 with a translation into Spanish and an example sentence, something which I advise you always do when recording for yourself. http://www.goldidiomas.com/gram-vocab/vocabulario/phrasal-verb-list-pet-and-fce
