Cambridge English resources for the 2018 Cambridge English: Movers Test

Today, following on from my previous post, 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 Movers Listening on page 23, for Reading and Writing on page 25 and for Speaking on page 29.

Link to the 2018 Young Learners Handbook:  http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/images/young-learners-handbook-2018.pdf

For a summary of the changes that have been made to Movers, go here:

And the highly useful Movers Wordlist Picture Book here:


Movers Speaking Test 

The Movers Speaking Test has changed very very little.  (A great change is that the title of the story in Part 2 and the names of the people in the story now appear on the sheet with the pictures).

The Assessment Criteria for the tests have changed for Speaking Tests as from 2018, but as yet, I have not found this online.  I will add the link when it appears!

For the new Movers Writing Part 6, I recommend you look at the Young Learners Handbook pages 26-27.  There is a picture and some sample answers with marks.
