Sample Papers: Download & print

with 58 comments

If you click on the category “Practice Tests”, you will get to see some sites I know to download tests or to take them online…This way you don’t need to wait for me, i.e. for our face-to-face lesson, to get more sample papers.

Click on the following links to get a sample paper of each part…Print them and good luck. I will upload the answers in a week.

For the speaking part, you can record yourself here at Odeo (it is a free service that offers a way to record and share audio online for free. So you can record yourself and share your recording with me).

Web possibilities are endless. Just a matter of trying.

  9. Brilliant sample papers, except it isn’t possible to download the audio file for the listening. Does anyone know how to make it work?

    Thank you,

    • That happens because the server administrators removed the audio file, and now it’s missing. I’ll try to find a workaround in summer, when I expect to have more free time to fix these sort of stuff, but can’t promise anything either.
      My apologies in any case, and I hope you find the blog useful somehow.

      • 2018 and the audio files are still AWOL. Would you be so kind to upload new sample audio scripts so everyone can use them! thank you and HNY!

  10. Very useful sample papers, but I´d need the writing part 2. I´m an English teacher and I need topics for both essay writing and article, though tasks for the article are easier to find in the net.
    Thanks a lot
