Introduction

Introduction
Who is this book for?
This book has been written for students who are planning to take the Cambridge First Certificate in English (the FCE) and who want to develop theirvocabulary for the exam. The various exercises throughout the book focus on the vocabulary that FCE students would expect to use in the Speaking, Writing and Use of English papers, or that they might come across in the Reading or Listening papers.

Why is the book called 'Check your vocabulary: FCE

+?

It is also ideal for students who are going to take the Certificate in Advanced English (theCAE) within the next 6 - 12 months and would like to review / reinforce their vocabulary. Furthermore, unlike other FCE vocabulary resources, it also looks at some of the 'real' English that native speakers use in their everyday lives - idioms, colloquialisms, slang expressions and so on. Non-exam students at an intermediate or upper-intermediate level will also find the book ideal for developingtheir vocabulary.

How is the book organised?
There are two parts in the book: Part 1 focuses on general vocabulary items that would be useful in the exam as a whole (for example, word forms, phrasal verbs, prepositions, language of contrast, and uses of common verbs such as make and do). Part 2 focuses on common topics that often come up in the FCE exam and which students might need to speak orwrite about (for example, the environment, money, shopping and relationships). There is a complete answer key at the back.

How should you use the book?
When you use this book, you should not go through the exercises mechanically. It is better to choose areas that you are unfamiliar with, or areas that you feel are of specific interest or importance to yourself. Remember that you should keep arecord of new words and expressions that you learn, and review these from time to time so that they become an active part of your vocabulary. Some students keep a notebook or file specifically for this purpose. Also remember that there are other methods of acquiring new vocabulary. For example, you should read as much as possible from a different variety of authentic reading materials (books,newspapers, magazines, etc). To help you learn English, you should use an English dictionary that can clearly define words, provide information about grammar and give sample sentences to show how words are used in context. You can use any good English learner's dictionary with this workbook. Many of the sample sentences in the book have been taken or adapted from the Easier English Dictionary forStudents (0 7475 6624 0).
