I am going to take CAE exam in December.
I would like to cooperate with somebody in order to create the club for CAE preparation. It could be as the skype conference.
I would be happy to train Speaking and Writing via skype. We could try to check our essays, encourage each other, push each other forward, organize speaking sessions on the CAE topics. We can choose some textbooks for our sessions, do oral and written tasks from the textbook.
If anybody was interested, I would create a page with a scheldule of our meetings.
It's my e-mail -> marfina90@gmail.com
Yours Sincerely, Olga.

Hurrah! Today at 7 p.m. (Moscow time) we are having our third session!
We chose for training Speaking part the textbook 'Gold Advanced', 2015.
Our sessions consist from 3 parts. We speak on Speaking part from the textbook, the format of the exam and our mistakes (there is a native in our club, who corrects us, but he is not online every session, sometimes he is with us, sometimes he is not. He is an Englishman, from Coventry).

From this moment our club will be divided into three branches:
1) Preparation for FCE (only calls)
2) Preparation for CAE (only calls)
3) Chatting group (Just to exchange text messages)

For CAE group there are special requirements.
Every session we train one part from CAE Speaking Task.
We don't use CAE Gold Advanced, only Past Papers.

Constructions like — If not for, But for, If I were you and so on.

We use Linkers, Colloquial phrases, Introductory Phrases, like -

As for as vocabulary is concerned:
Active using of Collocations, Idioms, Phrasal Verbs from the textbooks 'IN USE'.

For every session we are going to prepare materials.
