How to use this guide and the practice testsThis guide has been designed to give you a thorough introduction to the Cambridge EnglishQualifications A1 Movers test. The guide accompanies the Collins practice tests book forCambridge English Qualifications A1 Movers and includes for each of the three practice tests: audio scripts for Listening answer keys scripts for Speaking (also online, first without and then with student’s responses).The practice tests replicate the Cambridge English Qualifications A1 Movers test in terms oflayout and content.This guide also includes tips for students on test day (see page 24) and vocabulary practicefor you to do with your students (see page 25), so that they feel fully prepared and confident ontest day.Here are some suggestions as to how you can use the practice tests in your classroom: Examine the structure of papersHelp students to become familiar with the structure of each paper, so that they don’t leave outa part by mistake. Study the rubrics in each partThe rubrics used in the practice tests are identical to those used in the test papers – if studentsbecome familiar with the rubrics, then they won’t misinterpret instructions on test day andlose marks. Create the exam experienceYou can get your students to do these practice tests under timed exam conditions so that theyget used to this feeling and are not nervous on test day. Revise grammar and vocabularyThe practice tests use a wide variety of grammatical structures and vocabulary from theA1 Movers syllabus. While the course book that you’re using is likely to deal with theselanguage and topics separately, in these practice tests the students will find the language allmixed together, as it will be in the test. The practice tests give you the opportunity to recycleand revise topic work that you have done in class in an authentic way.Cambridge English Qualifications A1 Movers Teacher’s Guide HarperCollins Publishers 2018.74870 Movers TG P001-058.indd 5515/12/17 5:37 PM

Listening Part 1Students look at a big picture showing people doing different things. There are seven namesabove and below the picture. Students listen to a dialogue between an adult and a child talkingabout the people in the picture. Students draw lines between the names and the correct peoplein the picture. There is one example.This is what Part 1 looks like. In the test, thereare five more extracts from the dialogue aboutthe people in the picture.This is what you hear Look at Part 1. Look at the picture.Listen and look. There is one example.Woman:Boy:Woman:Boy:Woman:Boy:What are you doing in this picture?Is it a lesson?No, it isn’t. We couldn’t go to theplayground because it rained that day.We played in the classroom after lunch.Oh, OK. Who’s that?The blonde girl who’s drawing thehouse on the board?Yes, who’s she?That’s Vicky. She’s very good at drawing.Can you see the line? This is an example.Now you listen and draw lines.Tips for students Look carefully at the picture before you listen to the dialogue. You will need to focus on thedifferences between similar people so try to think about what sort of language might beused to describe them before you listen. Be aware that the language of this part of the task will include descriptions of people’sclothes and physical appearance, as well as what they are doing. Draw neat, straight lines so that your answers are clear.Tips for teachers Make sure that students are familiar with the names listed in the A1 Movers vocabulary listat the back of this guide. Revise the present continuous tense, which students will hear in this part of the test. Provide lots of practice in describing pictures of people. Ask students to work in pairs. Give a picture of a person to each student and ask them to take turnsin describing what the person in their picture looks like and what they are doing. Then their partnershould draw a picture of the person based on what they have heard. Compare the drawings to theoriginal pictures. Project one picture from the practice tests book up onto the whiteboard. Students then makeupquestions about the people focusing on what they look like, what they’re wearing and what they’redoing. Write up the question stems below and get students to complete them.Highlight and check the understanding of the common expressions from this part: Can you see .?Who’s that boy/girl/man/woman?Which one’s he/she?Is he the boy/girl/man/woman in the .?Who’s the boy/girl/man/woman who’s .? Is he/she wearing a .?Yes, that’s him/her.No, I mean the boy/girl/man/woman who’ s .That’s .Get students to practise drawing lines accurately and neatly. For example, ask students tocome to the board in turn and draw a straight, neat line connecting two objects you havedrawn. Vote for the neatest line!Cambridge English Qualifications A1 Movers Teacher’s Guide HarperCollins Publishers 2018.74870 Movers TG P001-058.indd 7715/12/17 5:37 PM

Listening Part 2This is a note-taking exercise. Students listen to a dialogue between two people, then writea word to fill the five gaps on a form or page of a notepad. Students are not penalised formisspellings if the words are not spelled out on the recording. There is one example.This is what Part 2 looks like. In the test, thereare three more gaps to fill and five more extractsfrom the dialogue to listen to.This is what you hear Part 2. Listen and look. There is oneexample.Girl:Man:Girl:Man:Girl:Can I ask you some questionsabout the sports centre? It’s for myhomework.Yes, OK.Thanks. So, how often do you cometo the sports centre?I come every Saturday.Thank you.Can you see the answer? Now youlisten and write.Tips for students Look carefully at the gaps in the form or notepad before you listen to work out what sort ofinformation will go there. There will always be a word that will be spelt out – this is likely to be the name of a personor place, so try to work out which gap this is before you listen so that you are prepared for it. Make sure you know your letters really well before you go into the test.Tips for teachers Play vocabulary games (see pages 25–26) with lexical items that students might hear in thispart of the test, e.g. days of the week and forms of transport (see A1 Movers vocabulary listat the back of this guide). Play spelling games with words in the A1 Movers vocabulary list at the back of this guide.For example, hold up flashcards and ask students to spell the word for the class as a classactivity. Focus on the double letter form where possible, e.g. K-A-N-G-A-R-double-O.Cambridge English Qualifications A1 Movers Teacher’s Guide HarperCollins Publishers 2018.74870 Movers TG P001-058.indd 8815/12/17 5:37 PM

Listening Part 3There are two sets of pictures in Part 3. On the left-hand page, there are six pictures of namedpeople, things or places. On the right-hand page, there are eight pictures with letters but nonames or words. Students listen to a dialogue, which is mainly led by one speaker. They matchthe lettered pictures with the named pictures by writing letters in boxes on the left-hand page.There is one example.This is what Part 3 looks like. In the test, there are threemore named items on the left-hand page and fourmore lettered items on the right- hand page. There areanother five extracts from the dialogue to listen to.This is what you hear Part 3. Julia is telling her teacher abouther family’s weekend. What did eachperson do? Listen and write a letter ineach box. There is one example.Man:Hello Julia. Did you have a goodweekend?Girl: Yes, I did. All the people in my familywere very busy this weekend!Man: Why? What did they do?Girl: They did a lot of different things! MyMum went to the swimming pool onSaturday. She goes every week becauseshe loves swimming.Man : I do too!Can you see the letter “E”? Now youlisten and write a letter in each box.Tips for students Read the sentence and the question at the beginning very carefully, because the dialoguewill be easier to understand if you understand the context. Before you listen, look at the unnamed pictures on the right-hand page and think aboutor note down words to describe them. This will help you to prepare for what you are aboutto hear. Remember that the speakers will mention the two lettered items that are not used, so don’tthink that simply because you heard the word, it must be the answer to that question. Listencarefully to what the speaker says about each item.Tips for teachers Play vocabulary games (see pages 25–26) with lexical sets that students might hear in thispart of the test, e.g. days of the week, activities, places, transport (see A1 Movers vocabularylist at the back of this guide). Play vocabulary games (see pages 25–26) to practise the irregular forms of the simple pastof common verbs which students will need to understand here. Get hold of two sets of pictures – name one set (e.g. a group of named children) and letterthe other (e.g. a set of lettered items of clothing). Get your students to write sentenceslinking one item from each set (e.g. Julia bought some new shorts yesterday.) Then you makeup some sentences and ask your students to match the items from what you’ve said.Cambridge English Qualifications A1 Movers Teacher’s Guide HarperCollins Publishers 2018.74870 Movers TG P001-058.indd 9915/12/17 5:37 PM

Listening Part 4Part 4 contains five three-option multiple-choice questions with pictures. Students listen tofive dialogues – there is one question for each dialogue. Students tick the correct picture. Thereis also one example and one example dialogue.This is what Part 4 looks like. In the test, there arethree more questions and five more extracts fromthe dialogue to listen to.This is what you hear Part 4. Look at the pictures. Listen andlook. There is one example.What’s the matter with Paul?Woman:Boy:Woman:Boy:Woman:Boy:Woman:What’s the matter, Paul? Have yougot a stomach-ache?No, my stomach is OK. It’s my earsthat hurt.Oh dear, do you have a headacheas well?No, I only have an earache.Shall we go and see the doctor?Let’s see how I am in the morning.OK.Can you see the tick? Now you listenand tick the box.Tips for students Before you listen, read all the questions and look at all the pictures carefully. Think about ornote down words that you might use to describe these pictures – sometimes you’ll just seea thing and sometimes it will be a person doing something. All the items are usually mentioned in each dialogue so don’t write down the first oneyou hear. The correct answer may come at any point in the dialogue so don’t necessarily tick the onethat you hear last.Tips for teachers Play vocabulary games (see pages 25–26) with lexical sets that students might hear inthis part of the test, e.g. weather, food, prepositions, clothes, the home (see A1 Moversvocabulary list at the back of this guide). Get students to work in pairs. Ask them each to draw three slightly different pictures andswap them with a partner. Then ask them to describe what is happening in one of thepictures and their partner must guess which one they are referring to.Cambridge English Qualifications A1 Movers Teacher’s Guide HarperCollins Publishers 2018.74870 Movers TG P001-058.indd 101015/12/17 5:37 PM

Listening Part 5There is a large picture in Part 5, which is mostly black and white. Students listen to a dialoguebetween an adult and child. The adult gives the child instructions to colour various items, andwrite a simple word. Students listen, then colour and write a word. There is one example.This is what Part 5 looks like. In the test, thereare five more instructions like this to listen to.This is what you hear Part 5. Look at the picture. Listen and look.There is one example.Man:Girl:Man:Girl:Man:Girl:Would you like to colour this picturefor me?Yes, please. What fun they are havingat the beach!There’s a man who’s fishing. Can yousee him?Yes, I can.Colour his trousers red.OK, I’m doing that now.Can you see the red trousers? This is an example.Now you listen and colour and write.Tips for students Remember to have your colouring pencils ready for this part of the test. Remember that this test is not just colouring, but also you have to write a simple word. Don’t worry if your colouring or writing is not very good. Just make sure that it’s clear thatyou’ve understood the instructions. This part of the test is more challenging than it looks. You need to be able to understandlanguage that describes slightly different items, so listen very carefully to the instructions.Tips for teachers Play vocabulary games (see pages 25–26) with lexical sets that students might hear inthis part of the test, e.g. colours, prepositions, places, clothes, animals, the body and face(see A1 Movers vocabulary list at the back of this guide). Find a colouring book which has colour versions and black and white versions of the samepictures. Choose two pictures that contain lexical items from the A1 Movers syllabus.Produce colour and black and white versions of both pictures. Get students to work in pairs.Give Student A a colour picture and Student B the same picture in black and white. Getthem to sit back to back. Student A gives instructions to Student B to colour various items.Compare pictures at the end. Repeat, this time giving the colour version of the other pictureto Student B. You could get students to draw their own colour and black and white picturesfor this activity. Highlight and check the understanding of some of the common expressions from therecordings of this part: Can you see .?Colour it .Now you can write something.Would you like to colour something .?Now some more colouring. What else can I colour?Can I write something now?I’d like to colour the .What colour shall I use?Cambridge English Qualifications A1 Movers Teacher’s Guide HarperCollins Publishers 2018.74870 Movers TG P001-058.indd 111115/12/17 5:37 PM
