FCE ESOL Interview


Last week I had my FCE interview. It was my first exam, so I was nervous.

Here is some advice:

- you shouldn't learn a text with information about yourself as you don't know what you are going to be asked.

- you should also pay attention to your partner, especially in the 2nd part, as you are going to be asked a question about what they say.

- in the 3rd part you should give your partner a chance to speak, because it is pointless to talk all the time, as it is a conversation.

- in the last part you should listen carefully to the question and if you don't understand it ask the examiner to repeat it again.

Good luck in the exam ;) !

The Dark is Rising

It’s a fantasy film about a boy, who turns 14 and from then he starts to see some strange things. One day he goes to a shopping centre to buy a present for his little sister. A few seconds later two policemen take him to their office. They suddenly turn into dark creatures who want his Sign. The next day four people named the Old Ones tell him that he is the Seeker, a magician who has to find some Signs. But a bad Rider tries to kill him in many ways. Will he succeed? What do you think?

I liked the film very much, because of its action, especially when the Seeker fought against the Rider. It was also dramatic, as he learnt that he had a twin brother who was lost. I think you would like the film, too.
