If you have followed this CAE course until now, you will already have learnt and practised the second part of the CAE listening paper. You should remember that that task comprises a passage with 8 blanks in it. I would like you to complete a similar exercise in the photo below. Why? Because you'll be simultaneously revising what you now know about the Reading and Use of English paper. You'll be killing 2 birds with 1 stone. So...

1. Take 45 seconds to read the passage below.
2. Listen to the dictation video below the passage (in part 2 of the listening paper the listening passage will be a lot quicker and shorter)
3. Write down your answers on a separate sheet of paper.
4. Compare your answers with the answers below the video.

Here is the passage:


CAE Use of English Test


  2. 90 / NINETY
  3. 12 / TWELVE
  5. 1 / ONE
  6. 1/ ONE 
  7. WORD
Learning the format of each exam paper in the CAE exam is one of the fundamental steps in my strategy. If you want to see the format of the other exam papers, check out this page.
