1 The sequence of the notes (background, main
event, ending) should help to confirm the correct
order. Ask students to underline the key words
and expressions that helped them to decide on
the correct sequence. Check their choices when
you review the answer with the whole class.
Focus especially on the opening words of each
Last weekend, ... A time reference is a typical
way of starting a narrative. Elicit other similar
examples (e.g. When I was seven years old, ... Two
years ago, ... etc.)
Suddenly ... An adverb is a typical way of
introducing something dramatic: the main point
of the story. It would not normally come at the
start of the text. Elicit other similar examples (e.g.
Quickly, Slowly, Immediately.)
When I finally arrived ... Concluding words
like finally usually signal the end of the story.
Elicit other similar examples (e.g. In the end ... ,
Eventually ... .)
Correct order is: C(2), A(3), B(1)
2 For question a, tell students to underline or
highlight all the verbs and decide which tenses are
being used and why.

For question b, make sure students understand

how the linking words indicate the development of
the story.

with any areas of the Listening exercises they had difficulty with.

Sample answers Students will get sample answers in the Writing sections after
they have written their own answer for an extended writing task
(email, essay, etc.) and it has been marked. They can analyse the
sample answer and then read comments on it, to give them a good
idea of what is expected in the exam.

Change your answers and try again Students can click the ’Change’ button to repeat an exercise or
to answer a question again. If students are using the self-study
option, or you have set them the assignment in ‘practice mode’,
they can change their answers as many times as they wish, before
they submit their assignment. Once they click on submit, they
cannot change any answers.
