There is a wide variety of interactive online activities available for candidates preparing for Cambridge English exams and in this month’s blog we are going to take a look at some of the things on offer.
Write and Improve is a free automated writing assessment tool provided by Cambridge English. It offers a way for students to improve their writing independently outside the classroom and provides instant feedback.
It covers the core areas of spelling, vocabulary, grammar and general style and by providing a CEFR level for each task submitted it allows students to keep track of their progress.
Students are kept engaged by choosing from a range of writing tasks to submit and can edit their work to make improvements based on the feedback given. A new CEFR level is given after each edit.
