Przygotowanie do egzaminu FCE
irst Certificate in English (FCE) znajduje się na liście Rady Europy (Council of Europe) – na poziomie średniozaawansowanym – B2, co oznacza, że osoba, która posiada ten certyfikat potrafi: zrozumieć zasadnicze problemy przedstawione w złożonych tekstach (np. specjalistycznych dotyczących tematyki zawodowej). Porozumiewa się swobodnie. Wypowiada się w sposób jasny i szczegółowy. Bez trudu potrafi wyrazić opinię na dany temat.
Kandydaci mogą przygotować się do egzaminu indywidualnie lub na kursach językowych. Praca pod opieką doświadczonego lektora na pewno ułatwi osiągnięcie dobrego wyniku. Niemniej wszystkim zainteresowanym egzaminem polecamy wskazówki Kevina Rutherforda, który pełni w British Council funkcję Senior Teacher. Egzamin FCE składa się z pięciu części: 1. Czytanie (Reading) – 1 godz. 15 min 2. Pisanie (Writing) – 1 godz. 30 min 3. Stosowanie struktur językowych (Use of English) – 1 godz. 15 min 4. Rozumienie ze słuchu (Listening) – ok. 40 min 5. Mówienie (Speaking) – ok. 14 min
Zaglądaj do swojego słowniczka w każdej wolnej chwili (np. w tramwaju, na przystanku autobusowym lub stojąc w kolejce). • Spotykaj się z kolegami, którzy również będą zdawać egzamin, aby sprawdzać wzajemnie swoją wiedzę i ćwiczyć razem angielski. • Jak najczęściej czytaj teksty w języku angielskim. W księgarniach językowych znajdziesz wiele interesujących książek na odpowiednim dla Ciebie poziomie. Pamiętaj, czytanie rozwija słownictwo. • Jeżeli pisanie po angielsku jest dla Ciebie bardzo trudne, zacznij od przepisywania zdań lub fragmentów tekstów z książek. Potem spróbuj układać podobne zdania samodzielnie. Wskazówki jak napisać różnego rodzaju teksty (np. list, artykuł, raport) znajdziesz w podręcznikach. • Oglądaj telewizję brytyjską lub amerykańską. Słuchaj Serwisu Informacyjnego Radia BBC; to pomoże Ci udoskonalić umiejętność rozumienia ze słuchu. Zwróć uwagę na książki nagrane na kasetach, aby móc czytać i słuchać jednocześnie. • Upewnij się, że posiadasz dobrą książkę do gramatyki. Najlepsze są książki do samodzielnej nauki, z opisaną gramatyką, ćwiczeniami oraz odpowiedziami. Nie poprzestawaj na zrobieniu ćwiczenia raz. • Upewnij się, że masz dobry słownik angielsko-angielski. Na niższych poziomach polecam słowniki ilustrowane. Przykładowe testy egzaminacyjne znajdują się na stronie internetowej University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations: http://www.cambridgeesol.org/support/dloads/index.cfm

Part 1 You are going to read an article about trainers. Choose from the list A-1 the sentence which best summarises each part 1-7 of the article. There is one extra sentence which you do not need to use. There is an example at the beginning (0). Mark your answers on the separate answer sheet. A B C D E F G H I A profitable trade in trainers led to further commercial developments. Manufacturers gradually changed their attitude towards the fashion for trainers. An innovation preceded the development of trainers. Sportswear companies developed trainers in response to changing fashions. The fashionable status of trainers increased quite suddenly. Advice was sought in the initial development of trainers. Trainers slowly became fashionable amongst certain non-sports people. Top stylists looked to trainers as a source of inspiration. The universal appeal of trainers can't be denied. them – yet as a fashion item, they've only really been around for 30 years.

he story of running shoes, of course, goes back further. It all began in Bolton, England in the 1890s when Joseph Foster, a keen runner in a local sports club, used nails to make the first spiked running shoe. By 1895, Fosters company was turning out handmade running shoes and quickly built up a reputation, supplying the British Olympic team in 1924. The company stayed in the family, although Fosters grandsons renamed it Reebok.
in Liverpool in England, but started out by driving a van to Germany to buy trainers in 1981. An even bigger empire was founded when Americans Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight began importing Japanese trainers to the USA in the late 1960s. They sold their first consignment of 200 pairs from the back of a car at athletics meetings, but by 1971 they were designing shoes of their own, calling their company Nike after the Greek goddess of victory.
some of their classic trainers, the company just laughed, saying they didn't go backwards. `Of course they had to eventually,' says Duffer's Eddie Prendergast. Now all of the big brands have `heritage' editions of old styles, and they'll happily work with shops to release limited editions in special colours or materials to satisfy the demands of collectors. Part 2 You are going to read a newspaper article about Hollywood. For questions 8-14, choose the answer (A, B, C or D) which you think fits best according to the text. Mark your answers on the separate answer sheet.
is currently working at a children' s talent agency to make ends meet. 'Basically, I do my best to keep happy and focused on the industry,' she says. 'I was very realistic when I came to Hollywood – I presumed I would have to be a waitress, so I can't complain about a job that not only pays the bills, but which also gives me a lot of satisfaction.' Rachael is just one of an estimated I, 000 hopefuls who arrive in Los Angeles every week, chasing dreams of stardom. Many are British, and almost all are unprepared for the intensity of the competition for acting jobs, and end up taking menial jobs because they have to support themselves. 'British actresses think Los Angeles is the land of opportunity,' she explains. 'They see icons like Kate Winslet and think it's possible to be successful here. But for every one that makes it, there are thousands who end up doing dead-end jobs. Many get stuck here because they don' t want to go home again, not so much because they can't afford it, but because that would be admitting defeat – they'd risk losing face.' In spite of the constant rejection, Rachael keeps going. 'I'm passionate about acting and I think I've reached a standard where I can prove I'm a good actress,' she explains. `But I do get down sometimes. That's when I cry on the phone to Mum, who talks me out of packing my bags and makes me realise I need to strive harder. There isn't a day that goes by when I don't wonder if I made the right decision to come here, but then a big audition comes up, or someone introduces me to a useful contact, and I realise how lucky I am.' Rachael always wanted to act. She studied drama at Liverpool University before spending two years at the American
ut the people we really have to thank for the trainers we wear today are the Dassler brothers of Germany. Adi and Rudolph began making sports shoes in the 1920s, getting coaches, doctors and athletes to help them design specialist tennis, football and running shoes. By 1928, they were making shoes for the German Olympic team, and they became world leaders when the legendary American runner Jesse Owens wore their shoes at the 1936 Berlin Olympics.
hen, in 1986, a New York rap band called Run-DMC had a global hit with My Adidas, in which they boasted that they owned 50 pairs. Almost overnight, every student who wanted to look cool and urban went out and bought a pair. That same year, Nike pushed its sales past the $1 billion mark for the first time thanks to their chunky but stylish Air Jordan trainers, promoted by the ultra-cool US basketball star Michael Jordan.
I'M NOT A WAITRESS – I'M AN ACTRESS!
For every Kate Winslet or Catherine Zeta Jones, there are thousands of British `wannabe' actresses who never make it in Hollywood. 'It is disheartening,' admits 28year-old Rachael Nortance. 'I've been to so many auditions for film parts where I walk in and there's a room full of equally talented people, and I ask myself: „Why am I here?” But ironically, what Rachael finds hardest to accept is how nice people are to her at auditions. 'The organisers tell you they love your work, and for the first month or so I believed them, but eventually I realised it's totally fake because mostly you never hear from them again.' During her four years in the USA, Rachael has been to more auditions than she can remember. She has sent out thousands of photos of herself, and been to all the right parties. For all that, the closest she has come to a camera is the one she is using to send snaps home to her family in England. She has yet to land any film or TV work, and
WHY DO WE ALL WEAR TRAINERS!
How did sports shoes designed for runners became the ultimate fashion statement?
'm writing this wearing shoes that were originally designed for Olympic athletes. Actually, the only exercise I'm planning today is a five-minute walk to the post office, but I'm wearing my trainers anyway, because they look cool and they're comfortable. Male or female, fitness fan or not, everyone seems to love trainers. It's hard to imagine life without
n 1948, however, the brothers fell out and formed two rival companies. Rudolph launched Puma; Adi Dassier created Adidas. The competition between the two led to rapid innovation, and by the late 1970s, Puma and Adidas shoes were not only being worn by sportspeople. In the USA, trainers and tracksuits gradually became the uniform of the small, but growing, hip-hop music scene; in the UK they were taken up by football fans, with rare German trainers like the Adidas Samba or Puma Menotti becoming highlydesirable status symbols.
he world of fashion could ignore the trend no longer. Designers such as Yohji Yamamoto began to show expensive suits with trainers, and in the 1980s designers like Vivienne Westwood and Katharine Hamnett included high-heeled trainer-like shoes in their collections. By then Nike and Adidas trainers were available in every shopping centre, with fashion fans only too happy to pay a little extra for a designer label.
mart people began to realise there was money in importing cool trainers. Wade Smith now has a fashionable casualwear shop
he sportswear companies spent much of the 1980s protesting that they were about fitness, not fashion, but gradually they began to realise they could do both. Quietly, they began making shoes in exclusive colours and designs, not just for high-profile sports stars but for singers, rappers and other style-setters. In the 1980s, when a fashionable London menswear shop called Duffer of St George approached Adidas, asking them to reissue
