Cambridge English resources for the 2018 Cambridge English: Flyers Test

Today, following on from my previous posts on 2018 Starters and 2018 Movers, I’m going to share links to online resources for the 2018 Cambridge English: Movers Test.

The 2018 Handbook. 

In this, you can find out what’s on each Test.  The wordlists, the grammar and structures list, the format of the different Parts of the Tests (Listening, Reading and Writing and Speaking).

In the Handbook, I’d particularly recommend the Tips for preparing learners for the different parts of the test.

You’ll find tips for Flyers Listening on page 37, for Reading and Writing on pages 39-41 and for Speaking on page 43.

  1. Great piece of knowledge and extremely useful. It would be awesome to put some more sources not only from Cambridge Assessment English but also from British Council.
    PS I recommend also ‘Fun for Flyers Student’s Books’ and ‘Kid’s Box’ – the official Cambridge English Student’s books.

      Thank you very much. I know that there are some great resources provided by the British Council, but I wanted to share those that I have found specifically for preparing the Cambridge English: Young Learners Tests.
