One of the best reading materials and activities I have ever come across. Great when preparing or teaching for CAE.
CAE Reading Skills helps students to develop the general skills necessary for the CAE Paper 1 and, at the same time, familiarizes them with the different task types that they will encounter in this part of the exam. Section A of each unit concentrates on a different Paper 1 exercise format, whereas Section B concentrates on the development of general strategies such as reading for gist. CAE Reading Skills: • introduces students to the different text types and exercise formats that they will meet in the CAE Reading paper • uses authentic texts from a range of sources • has pre-reading and follow-up tasks, so that each text is given a context within the topic of the unit • contains clear Study Tips and Exam Tips boxes that encapsulate the information given in each unit • is written by authors with an in-depth knowledge of the CAE exam • has a key for self-study purposes.
