Exam Practice

I’ve just been doing some writing work for a really useful site called Exam English. The site specialises in providing information and free practice materials for a variety of English language exams including IELTS, TOEFL and the range of Cambridge exams..

The practice materials are mostly Flash based and are interactive. They test a range of skills and grammar, and you get the results at the end as well as the chance to review your answers. Many cover listening skills with professional quality recordings for students to listen to.

I’ve just written one for the TOEFL reading paper based on a text about Robert Capa.
  • You can try that out here
I've also written a listening paper based on the life of Sylvia Plath
  • You can listen to that here
There is also a basic level test which students can use to see which exam would be appropriate for them.
  • You can have a look at it here
On the whole I think this is a really useful site with some really useful resources and information and some well designed interactive activities.

Great site, Nik!
Thanks for sharing. I'm going to tell my TOEFL iBT students about it.
