How are you?
The oral comprehension, LISTENING, section of the First Certificate Exam is probably the one that exam takes or candidates fear the most.
How do you feel about it?
We agree it is a tricky section yet we know you can do very well. You just need lots of practice and to concentrate during the exam.
It is very important you stay focused during the exam and to follow the instructions carefully. Also, you will be given time to read the possible answers before listening and it is very important to do so carefully.
How have you been?
Do you like going to the cinema or watching films?
I love watching films at home, at the cinema, it does not matter; it is one of my favourite free time activities
It is also good for me as an English teacher because watching films is one of the things I can advise you to do, to improve your English. 🙂
So, today, I want to talk you about one of my favourite films: “Little Miss Sunshine”
I have highlighted the new vocabulary and you can find it below.
It was released in 2006, written by Michael Arndt, and directed by the husband-and-wife team of Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris.
It relates the story of the Hoovers, Sheryl, the mum, Richard, the dad, the grandpa, Frank, the uncle, and Dwayne, the brother, all travelling cross-country to take 7-year-old Olive to the Little Miss Sunshine state beauty contest.
It is a film full of warmth and charm. It is a comedy-drama that has the ability to make you laugh and cry almost at that same time and then leave you with the feeling that no matter how hard it can be, “life is worth living”.
