care not to give the answers away by saying them differently.

1 Establish the topic with a warmer that is based on

Also check what they know about Paper 3 Part 1. Outline its requirements, and explain that you are going to do some in-depth practice for this part of the test including dictation.
2 Give out Worksheet 1, and get the students ready for the dictation in Exercise 1. Do this in whatever way you think is most appropriate for your students. One way would be to read the extract through, saying gap and the corresponding number where there is a gap, at natural speed, to give them an overview. Then go through it a number of times at slower speeds. They write the complete text as below (with gaps) on the Worksheet.

Now the pairs should discuss the answers. When they have finished, check the key with them. Key to Exercise 1: 1C 2B 3A 4D 5B
5 Now do Exercise 2. Pairs work together to

A lot of your time goes on waiting for (2) _____, for visas, for banks to open, and so on. Learning to travel is (3) _____ about learning to wait.

Key to exercise 2 (part 1): When you sit around doing nothing you are often accessing into the genuine experience of somewhere, particularly if it is vacant of any interest. So you chance yourself in an airport or bus station or some such place a place whose duration is entirely based on the fact that people who come there are unable to get away immediately as they would like to.
6 They may be able to think of the correct words at this stage, but its a tall order. 8 Now they should refer to these sets to complete Exercise 4.

10 Conclusion: you have looked together in depth

Allow sufficient time for them to discuss their answers and then go through the key with them. Key to Exercise 2 (Part 2): 6C 7B 8A 9B
7 Give out Worksheet 2 either with Exercise 3 separate from Exercise 4, or with the Worksheet folded over.

Pairs should decide how to group these words. Check their answers. Key to Exercise 3: Note: Do not confirm these sets in this order, as this would make Exercise 4 too easy. Set 1: count indicate calculate point Set 2: passed spent given used Set 3: exchange return substitute alternate Set 4: deducts cancels removes deletes Set 5: push motive force urge Set 6: away up off out
