Supporting you at the start of the school year

The start of the academic year is the perfect time to explain the benefits of Cambridge English Qualifications to both students and parents.

Whilst your school may have already decided to offer Cambridge English Qualifications, some parents will need more information to understand the value of learning and assessing English.

Our level-based exams provide a clear path for developing English language skills, step by step. This clear path for progression inspires learners to go further, opening doors to exciting higher education and workplace opportunities.

Helpful timeline

Don’t forget to use our helpful timeline to plan your school year!

It includes useful tips and links to resources for teachers preparing students for Cambridge English Qualifications.

Teaching activities

Autumn has just started and in Cambridge Assessment English we want to celebrate this new season with activities for students, from Pre-A1 Starters up to C1 Advanced.

Happy teaching!

New! Fun poster activities help prepare school students for the revised exams

Our updated A2 Key, A2 Key for Schools, B1 Preliminary and B1 Preliminary for Schools exams will be going live in January 2020.

To help you prepare students, we’ve created colourful classroom posters that include words from the updated wordlists. They encourage students to develop their speaking, listening, pronunciation and vocabulary. Each set of posters also includes a range of classroom activities.

Here are some examples of the classroom activities you can try – they’re fun and require no preparation!

20 questions
Put students in groups of three or four. One student chooses a word from one of the posters but doesn’t tell anyone what it is. The other group members take it in turns to ask questions to guess the word. Example questions for the food poster: Is it a feeling? ‘No.’ Is it a place? ‘No.’ Do you eat it? ‘Yes.’ Is it sweet? ‘Yes.’ Is it healthy? ‘No.’ Is it ice cream? ‘YES!’

Quick stories
Challenge your students to write a story in 35 words using as many words from the poster as possible. You could adapt this and ask students to make a dialogue instead – they could then act them out!

Student-created memory cards
Students cut up paper to make 20 squares (this could be more or fewer). In pairs, students choose ten words from the poster to draw as pictures on different squares. They then write the vocabulary to match the pictures on the other 10 squares. Once they have finished, they can play Pelmanism together by turning the squares over so the pictures and words are not visible. Each person takes it in turns to choose two squares. They must find the word that matches the picture. If they find a pair, they keep it. This can be adapted depending on the level of the class – students could make a complete sentence using the word when they find the matching pair.
