- For Teachers
As I'm preparing for the CAE, I wrote an information sheet. I'd be very appreciated, if someone could take a look at it and give me a short feedback, whether this is a good piece of work, not only in terms of grammar and spelling, but also in task fulfillment.
You are doing work experience in an English-speaking country, in a local city council. You’ve been given the task of writing an information sheet, telling people about a well-established chess club. The council would like to encourage more people to join.
In your information sheet, you should include:
• background information
• practical information
• reasons for joining
Write the text for the information sheet in 220-260 words.
