Abajo os contamos las diferentes partes del examen del “writing” del First de Cambridge (en inglés 🙂 ).

The writing paper has two different parts. In Part 1, there is a task that you must do. In part 2 there are four tasks and you have to choose one.

Time: 1 hour and 20 minutes (total).

Part 1

You’re given an essay title and two ideas clearly linked to the title. You write an essay giving your opinions about the title, using the ideas given. You must also add a third, different idea of your own linked to the title. The title will be a subject of general interest – you won’t need any specialised knowledge.

You are expected to use language functions, such as evaluating, expressing opinions, hypothesising, justifying, persuading.

Number of words: 140–190 words
