1 Writing answer guidelines for Test 3 Test 3, Writing Part 1 (page 114), Model answer 1 This model has been prepared as an example of a very good answer. However, please note that this is just one example out of several possible approaches. Hi Kay I ve bought lots of things over the Internet and I definitely think it s a good idea. I know some people have had problems sometimes but I ve only had positive experiences. I agree with Mark that books and CDs DVDs too are some of the best things to buy online. It s much quicker and easier than going into town and trying to find what you want in a shop there. It would be very risky to send cash through the post. It could easily get lost. Websites all accept payment by credit card and it s safest to pay that way. I think if you don t like what you re sent or if it gets damaged in the post, then you probably have the right to return it and get your money back. There ll be information on the website of the company you re using so read that before ordering anything. Good luck. Kumiko Test 3, Writing Part 2 (page 115), Answer guidelines 2 Use a range of structures, sentence lengths and vocabulary to make the story more interesting for the reader. Don t repeat the same words all the time you could, for example, use thrilling as well as exciting or an idiom such as my heart was in my mouth. Make it clear who the narrator is, e.g. how old the person is and what kind of lifestyle they have. You can give some background to the most exciting day and give reasons why it was so exciting. Make sure, though, that the reader can follow the story easily. Begin with the sentence provided. 3 Use language for describing, giving opinions and recommending some interesting adjectives may help with this. You must describe the game and give your opinion of it. You could give a general idea of what kind of game it is an adventure game or a sports game, for example, and could say what is special about it. You should also explain why you would or would not recommend the game to other people. You must make sure that readers have a clear idea about whether they would enjoy the game or not. Give the name of the game at the beginning of your review perhaps in a sub-heading. Write in clearly defined paragraphs the first one might describe the game, the second might say what you like about it, the third might point out a weak aspect of the game and the final paragraph might explain why you would or would not recommend it to other players. 4 Do not use contractions like I m or I ve instead of I am or I have. You may agree, disagree or even partly agree with the statement but you must make your opinion clear. You should give some examples of climate change and suggest why it is occurring. You must give reasons as to why it is difficult to prevent climate change. You should also suggest some things people can do to prevent climate change. Include an introduction and make sure you come to a clear conclusion. 5 Although Test 3, Question 5 in First Certificate Trainer does not refer to a specific author or book title, you need to select a title from the current or past ESOL set text list. Make sure you have read the book thoroughly or have seen the film before answering the question. 5a Use a range of structures, sentence lengths and vocabulary to make the article interesting. You should describe one event from the story which features someone in danger. Give a little background to the event and explain how the person deals with the dangerous event. You should give your opinion on how the situation is dealt with, explaining whether you feel the character handled the situation in an appropriate way.

2 Writing answer guidelines for Test 3 5b Use language that makes your points in a way that the reader will easily understand. You should clearly give the names of two actors, matching them to characters in the text. You must explain why you feel these actors are suited to the roles perhaps because of their appearance or because they have been good in similar roles. When you are writing you need to be aware of your target reader a person with a general interest but who may not know much about the characters in the text or the actors, and so will need the key points to be clearly explained. Perhaps include a title and sub-headings.

3 Writing answer guidelines for Test 4 Test 4, Writing Part 1 (page 133), Model answer 1 This model has been prepared as an example of a very good answer. However, please note that this is just one example out of several possible approaches. Dear Ronnie, Thank you very much for your invitation. It sounds fantastic and I d love to spend a week or two with you this summer. July would suit me better than August because I ve already agreed to help in my uncle s shop in August. My cousin usually helps him but he s going to be away on a school trip then. I think I d prefer to stay in your apartment. It d be nicer to be there with you and your parents rather than sleep somewhere else on my own. The beach is good but I d definitely prefer to do other things too. I love sightseeing in new places and I know there are some very interesting old castles not far from your place. How about visiting one or two of those? Looking forward to it so much, Nico Test 4, Writing Part 2 (page 134), Answer guidelines 2 Do not, for example, use contractions like I m or I ve instead of I am or I have. You need to discuss the statement given. Make sure you do not write about something that is not directly related to the topic for example, don t describe in detail one particular computer game. It doesn t matter whether you agree or disagree with the statement or even partly agree and partly disagree but you must make your own opinion clear. Write in clearly defined paragraphs the first one might introduce the topic, explaining what the statement means, the second might explain some people consider them a waste of time, the third might explain why other people think they are not a waste of time and the final one might give your own opinion on the statement. 3 Try to start your article in an interesting way so that you attract the reader s interest from the beginning. Use a range of vocabulary and structures to make your article more lively for the reader. For example, although most of your story will be in the simple past, you might be able to use the past continuous to describe what was happening when the incident happened or the past perfect to explain what had happened previously. You must describe something amusing that you saw, saying what happened, where it happened, when it happened and why you found it funny. It doesn t matter if what you describe isn t literally the funniest thing you ve ever seen. You should just choose one funny situation and describe it in an entertaining way. 4 Informal. You should use contractions like I m rather than I am in a letter of this kind. Your letter should open with some sort of friendly reference to your friend s letter. You should then suggest some places your Englishspeaking friend could go to in your country, explaining what he or she could do there. You should also suggest where and when you and your friend could meet while he or she is in your country. It s good to also close with some general sentence such as I look forward to hearing what you think of my ideas. The letter should be in clearly defined paragraphs. It does not need to include postal addresses but it should begin Dear Alex, and it should end with an informal closing expression such as Best wishes, or Love from, followed by your own first name on the line below. 5 Although Test 4, Question 5 in First Certificate Trainer does not refer to a specific author or book title, you need to select a title from the current or past ESOL set text list. Make sure you have read the book thoroughly or have seen the film before answering the question.

4 Writing answer guidelines for Test 4 5a Try to use some interesting adjectives and expressions for conveying your opinion don t just use ordinary words like good or great or nice. Your review should outline the story, then say what you liked and/ or disliked about it. It should also explain whether you would recommend it to other people of your age. The most important part of this review is your opinion about the story and the reasons why you would or would not recommend it, so don t give too much space to your outline of the story. 5b Informal. You should use contractions like it s rather than it is in a letter of this kind. Your letter should open with some brief friendly reference to your friend s letter. It should discuss whether you find the set text an exciting story (the kind of book that you want to keep reading all day). It does not matter whether you say the book is exciting or not but you must give clear reasons for your opinion. Your final sentence should refer back to your friend in some way Let me know what you think of the book if you decide to read it, for example. The letter should be in clearly defined paragraphs. It does not need to include postal addresses but it should begin Dear Megan, and it should end with an informal closing expression such as Best wishes, or Love from, followed by your own first name on the line below.

5 Writing answer guidelines for Test 5 Test 5, Writing Part 1 (page 152), Model answer 1 This model has been prepared as an example of a very good answer. However, please note that this is just one example out of several possible approaches. Hi Chris It s no problem if you come the second week in August instead of the first. In fact, it really suits us better because my brother will be away on a tennis course then so you can use his room. I m sure you ll love Egypt. It s a very beautiful country with lots of interesting places to visit. I think you ll particularly enjoy snorkelling in the Red Sea. Some people say that our underwater wildlife is the best in the world. It s much hotter here in August than it is in Scotland. So bring light summer clothes. Make sure you don t forget your swimming costume! When you arrive at the airport, just take a shuttle bus to the city centre. They go every fifteen minutes. Text me to say you re on your way. Then get off at the stop by the Metropole Hotel and I ll meet you there. Best wishes Alim Test 5, Writing Part 2 (page 153), Answer guidelines 2 Do not use contractions like they re instead of they are. Your essay may agree or disagree with the statement but it must make your opinion clear. Issues that you could refer to include: supermarkets offer cheaper food, making it easier for families to feed themselves; they import food from all over the world, allowing for much more variety than ever before; they tend to emphasise convenience over health, selling lots of ready meals; they overpackage food which is bad for the environment. However, there are plenty of other aspects of the topic that you could discuss. Your first paragraph might explain what the statement means. Your second might discuss ways in which supermarket food could be said to be good for us. The third might discuss ways in which supermarket food is not good for us. The final paragraph should offer a clear summary of your own opinion. 3 Use a range of structures, sentence lengths and vocabulary to make the story more interesting for the reader. Make it clear who Zoe is. You could describe how she felt when she missed the bus and how her feelings changed as the story continues. You may want to explain briefly why she missed the bus but you should not focus on that too much. The most important thing is what happened as she walked home. Make sure that the reader can follow the story easily. Begin with the sentence provided. Try to make the ending interesting. 4 Do not use contractions like he s rather than he is in a letter of this kind. Your letter of application should open with a clear statement of why you are writing I am writing to apply for the job you have advertised in your clothes shop, for example. It should explain why you think you are suitable for a job which requires good spoken English, an interest in clothes, including modern fashions, and the ability to work long hours including weekends. The letter should be in clearly defined paragraphs. The letter does not need to include postal addresses but it should begin Dear Mr Williamson, and it should end with the formal closing expression Yours sincerely, followed by your own full name on the line below. 5 Although Test 5, Question 5 in First Certificate Trainer does not refer to a specific author or book title, you need to select a title from the current or past ESOL set text list. Make sure you have read the book thoroughly or have seen the film before answering the question. 5a Neutral or informal. You should use contractions like it s rather than it is, as the writer of the letter in the question does.

6 Writing answer guidelines for Test 5 Your letter must give your opinion on the point Jack makes about the story suggesting people s lives were much harder then than they are now. You may agree or disagree with the statement but you must make your opinion clear. As the focus of this task is on the set text, your letter should not spend too much time describing people s lives today but should focus more on the text itself. You should not waste words on things that do not relate to the set text even though they might be appropriate for a letter to a friend don t talk about other aspects of your or his life, for example. The letter must be written in clearly defined paragraphs. It does not need to include any addresses but it should open Dear Jack, and should end in an informal way, e.g. Best wishes, followed by your first name on the following line. 5b Do not use contractions like it s rather than it is. The essay must discuss how the relationship between two characters in the book changes during the story. You should begin by stating clearly which two characters you are going to focus on. It should compare what the relationship was like at the beginning of the book with how it is at the end, discussing how and why it changes during the course of the story. The essay should be written in clearly defined paragraphs. The first might introduce the characters explaining briefly why you selected them. The second might consider their relationship at the beginning. The third might focus on discussing changes occurring during the story and the final paragraph might conclude by contrasting their relationship at the end with that at the beginning of the story.

7 Writing answer guidelines for Test 6 Test 6, Writing Part 1 (page 171), Model answer 1 This model has been prepared as an example of a very good answer. However, please note that this is just one example out of several possible approaches. Dear Mr Wilson, Thank you for your letter. I am afraid I would not want to do just evening work as I am anxious to find a full-time position. I would, however, be very interested in your alternative suggestion for work at the summer camp in the mountains. When are you likely to know whether there will be a vacancy there or not? I am available for work from 4 th July to 31 st August and would be happy to work for you for all of that period. However, if you would only want to offer me work for one month, then my preference would be for August. My spoken English is good as I spend a lot of time with English-speaking people. I am a sociable person and I definitely get on well with people of all ages. Yours sincerely, Bruno Schneider Test 6, Writing Part 2 (page 172), Answer guidelines 2 The article must choose two of the five sports listed (football, basketball, tennis, swimming or cycling) and should explain why you would like to do the two sports you have chosen. It must also name one other sport and should give reasons why this sport would also be appropriate for the summer school to include. Make sure your opinions and the reasons for them are absolutely clear. Use clearly defined paragraphs. 3 Do not use contractions. Write there is rather than there s, for example. The report must describe the public transport services available in your town. It should discuss whether these services meet the needs of everyone in the town and it must also suggest how the system could be improved. It is probable that your first paragraph will outline the nature of your town, the second will describe the public transport available, the third will consider how far it meets the needs of the townspeople and the fourth will make recommendations for improvements. Use clearly defined paragraphs. At the beginning (perhaps in a title) you should state the name of the town whose public transport you are discussing. 4 Use a range of structures, sentence lengths and vocabulary to make the story more interesting for the reader. Make it clear who the characters in the story are. You can make the story more interesting by explaining how the characters felt cold and afraid, perhaps. Possibly also write about what they could hear as well as what they could see. Make sure that the reader can follow the story easily. Begin with the sentence provided. Bring the story to an effective conclusion. 5 Although Test 6, Question 5 in First Certificate Trainer does not refer to a specific author or book title, you need to select a title from the current or past ESOL set text list. Make sure you have read the book thoroughly or have seen the film before answering the question. 5a Do not use contractions. Write it is rather than it s, for example. Your essay should describe the ending of the story and discuss whether you think it is a good ending or not. You may say that you find the ending effective or that you do not like it but you must make your own opinion clear, giving reasons for what you say.

8 Writing answer guidelines for Test 6 Your first paragraph might outline the ending of the story. The second might give your opinion as to whether it is a good ending or not. The third might consider another possible ending and say whether you think that would have been an improvement or not and the final paragraph could briefly summarise your point of view. However, there are other good ways of organising an answer to this question. 5b Do not use contractions. Write she is rather than she s, for example. Your report should describe the main events of the book for the benefit of someone considering making a film of the book, and it should explain whether you think the story would or would not be successful as a film. Make sure that the report is well-balanced and does not spend too much space on outlining the main events; the focus on whether it would make a good film or not is equally important. It does not matter whether you feel the book would make a good film or not, as long as you make the reasons for your opinion clear. At the beginning the report should clearly give the name of the book (perhaps in a title). Perhaps include a title and sub-headings too.
