Cambridge ESOL exercises

Practise for your Cambridge ESOL Exams with our free exercises below. You will find various types of exercise from the Use of English sections of these exams to help you prepare for First Certificate in English (FCE), Certificate of Advanced English (CAE) or Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE).

These free exercises have an optional time limit so you can test yourself in similar conditions to the exam: you will see a timer that counts down to zero; when it reaches zero your exercise will be automatically submitted. You can pause or switch off the timer if you wish.

The exercises on these pages were all written by International House Bristol staff and you will not find the same exercises on any other website or in any coursebook.
