Glyndŵr University

Glyndŵr University is one of the most dynamic, youngest universities in the UK. We believe University should be open to all, offering everyone the chance to reach their full potential. This shines through in everything we do. We listen to students and put them at the heart of each decision we make.

Because we have listened to students, we have fantastic facilities such as our £5m Centre for the Creative Industries, the ground breaking Centre for the Child, Family and Society and our Glyndŵr University Racecourse Stadium is the oldest active international football stadium in the world. Investing in these and many other areas has helped develop our international reputation for excellence and innovation.

We have campuses across North Wales and in London and excellent research facilities. Our research is geared towards creating innovations and solving problems in industry and society and we are proud of the contributions our researchers make to economic, social and cultural development.

We work hard to keep our courses up to date and industry relevant by building partnerships with national and international companies; we are creative in our thinking, often introducing courses which are the first of their kind in the UK; and we are sustainable and bold in how we operate. Because we work closely with partners in industry we know what they need, and we are committed to giving students the skills and practical experience to help them succeed in the jobs market. We put employability at the heart of everything we do. Courses are designed to provide employers with exactly what they’re looking for and many have been created with their direct input. Support, both in helping students plan their careers and their lives outside of the world of work, is always on hand via our careers team, as well as other expert advisers and counsellors.

Our Welsh hero Owain Glyndŵr is our inspiration and we have more than 125 years of history behind us, but we are focused on the future with new, flexible courses aimed at meeting the needs of students and employers today and for years to come.

B1 Speaking and Listening Exam Advice

Speaking Tips

• Don’t learn speeches and try to say them word-for-word in interviews – examiners will realise this easily. It is very hard to do this and sound natural.

• Try to relax and be natural – this will make speaking easier. Examiners want you to do your best, and are not trying to make your test difficult.

• Prepare your answers to common questions and personalise them. This will give examiners a good idea of your language level, and your ability to talk about past, present and future experiences.

• When describing something, don’t worry about every visible detail. Speak in general terms about it and how it affects you.

Listening Tips

• Listening exams usually have false information that sounds similar to the answer. Sometimes the information given matches one of the answers, but does not fit the question. For example: the person is talking about last week, but the question asks about next week. The correct information usually, but not always, comes afterwards.

• Nearly right is not the same thing as right; examiners often give information that sounds correct, but is not. Adverbs and modal verbs are often used to give incorrect information. It must be 100% accurate to be right.

• In long listening passages, there are often long sections with no relevant information, and then they give you two or three answers very quickly.

• Although long listening passages usually begin with an introduction, you cannot depend on this; the first word could be the answer to the first question.

Writing Tips

(If you are taking the writing part of the B1 Speaking and Listening Exam  (Although not required for Citizenship or ILR application)

• Don’t try to write too many connecting and contrasting words. If every sentence has the same words or expressions, the writing can seem strained and artificial.

• Write on alternate lines (leaving every second line blank) so that you have space to make changes when checking through your work.

• Always credit your sources in writing, even when you talk about ideas and are not quoting the source.

Update: We no longer run the B1 Exam at Eurospeak, due to changes made by the UKVI from November 5th 2015. To book your B1 Exam Preparation class, please click here.
