The book you are holding in your hand is the revised edition of the 2011 practice examination book for level B2. This edition is made up-to-date and follows the changes in task types that have taken place since the compilation of the first and second edition.In the 2018 edition, several tasks have been updated. Some of the tasks found in this book have been previously administered at real exams. The book contains new reading, writing, listening and speaking parts as well as colour pictures. A totally new element in this edition is the do it yourself tasks (which are not part of a real exam, they were included just for practice purposes) and extra online tasks. These extra online tasks can be found at http://audio.szabonyelviskola.hu, and can be accessed with a code you can find in the textbook. You can find practice Speaking and English usage tasks related to the 5 topics students fear the most. You can practice the Speaking tasks with another student or your teacher. The English usage tasks have an answer key, so you can do them alone and check your answers online.The book prepares students for the ECL level B2 examination. In this book you can find tasks for every skill of the complex exam. Each test prepares students for both the oral and the written part of the exam. At the writing part a monolingual or bilingual printed dictionary may be used but thematic dictionaries and electronic devices may not.The textbook’s audio materials are available in MP3/flac format. The audio files can be downloaded from the audio.szabonyelviskola.hu website with a code to be found in the textbook. The audio materials can be downloaded from the website a maximum of 3 times. Practise your listening comprehension skills by listening to recordings, after which you should check the answers and the transcript. You should not read the transcript as you listen to the recording. Remember, in a real exam, you will not have access to the transcript. At the end of each test you will find a “vocabulary file” that aims to help you better understand the texts and their vocabulary. It does not serve as a dictionary, as it only features words in the meaning in which they are actually used in the given text. After the vocabulary file you will also find ‘do it yourself’ tasks for practice purposes.
