response if they try to understand the situation and the
purpose or function of the speaker’s question or
statement. Exercise 3 gives them practice in doing this.

• The clues to the exam task focus on the function of the
first statement and this should help students to choose
the right option.

lines of the exchange together.

Exercise 2

Part 4, Questions 21–27

Teacher’s notes


• Remind students to read the instructions and the title of
the text to get an idea of the topic and try to predict what
they are going to read.

• They should then read the whole text once quickly for
general understanding.

• The questions in Exercise 4 encourage students to read
the text again carefully for detail.

• Discuss the example before telling students to do the
exam task.

• Remind students to use the clues to help them with the task.


Exercise 1
1 A young boy who wants to be a football player/footballer.

the text, or if the text ‘Doesn’t say’ i.e. there is not
enough information in the text to decide.

Part 5, Questions 28–35

Teacher’s notes


• After going through the instructions and the example,
point out that comparatives and superlatives often appear
in the exam and do Exercise 3.

• For further practice, you could
– give students more adjectives, comparatives and

superlatives and get them to complete a similar table to
the one in Exercise 3a .

– encourage students to find out about a particular
animal, and to make up similar exercises to
Exercises 3b and 3c to test a partner.

• Before students do the exam task, remind them to read
the whole text first for general understanding. You could
check comprehension by asking: What have you learned
about sharks and whales?

• Encourage students to write the words, not just the
letters, in the gaps to help them when checking their
answers. They can use the clues provided to help them
with the task.


Exercise 1
1 Sharks and whales. 2 Eight questions.
3 On the answer sheet.

Exercise 2
2 Too and very can’t be used in this context.
