I'm preparing my First Certificate Examen. What do you recommend me to listen to? I started listening to the Series 1 of the Elementary Podcasts, but I'm not sure if its level is enough for the FCE. What would you advise me, please?

Thank you very much in advance.

Hello B. Gar,

Elementary Podcasts, as the name suggests, is aimed at elementary level learners. I think as preparation for FCE something a little more challenging might be appropriate. Perhaps you might try Word on the Street, which is closer to the level of FCE.

I recommend you sample different series in our audio and video section, so you can judge for yourself which materials are best suited to your level. Try to find something challenging but not frustrating.

Best wishes,

Hi. This my first comment

A Mediterranean homemade recipe: “Fideus a la cassola”. “Thick noodles stew”
Ingredients: 45 mL olive oil. 400 gr pork rib (in pieces of 3-4 cm, you can ask your butcher for prepare them). 1 little potato, 1 onion, 1 tomato, 1 green pepper. Sweet red pepper powder. 500 mL water. 300 gr thick noodles.
Put the oil in a pan medium heat. Then put the pork meat in the hot oil. When de pork ribs are brown remove them from the pan. You can use the same oil to cook the vegetables. First the onion chopped, when the onion is brown, add the tomato chopped and then the green pepper in little slices and the potato square shaped. Add the sweet red pepper powder. After 3-4 minutes you can return de pork rib to the pan, add the water, the thick noodles and salt to taste. Finally bring to boil 12 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes and serve it.

Hi dega,

I'm afraid we only publish in pdf format here on LearnEnglish. However, most ebook readers can read this format, and there are applications available which can convert pdf into other formats.
