Listening for busy people

You will be proficient in English if you hear, read and practice authentic material.

However, we are all busy and time is of essence.

I am sure, though, that you will find six minutes every other day or so. British Council has those wonderful podcasts for you:

Read an online magazine

British Council has a wonderful online magazine for young learners like you. The articles are really interesting, in very decent English, with tons of nice vocabulary, topics that you need to cover for your exam, and it even says at the end of the article what the level of the text is (B2, C1 etc).

I quote: “Our magazine section is written especially for you by young people from the UK. If you want to keep up to date with the latest fashions, music or trends, this is the place to be.”
