This webinar is for teachers whose students wish to take Cambridge Preliminary or Cambridge Preliminary for Schools (formerly known as PET). Though still set at B1 level of the CEFR, the exam has been reviewed as it aims to remain a communicative test which is relevant to the needs of learners of English and is better aligned with exams at the other levels. The exam will be subject to changes which will go live as from January 2020, with Pretests already following the updated format. In this webinar the presenter will explain these changes and provide ideas on how to prepare students for the new exam, which will consist in four papers and feature noticeable differences with new or revised tasks.
