Topics in the following list may appear in your actual test. You should become familiar with this list before you take the PET & FCE test. Remember that when you take the test you will not have a choice of topics. You must write only on the topic that is assigned to you.
1- People attend college or university for many different reasons (for example, new experiences, career preparation, and increased knowledge). Why do you think people attend college or university? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
People attend colleges or universities for a lot of different reasons. I believe that the three most common reasons are to prepare for a career to have new experiences: and to increase their knowledge of themselves and the world around them.
Career preparation is becoming more and more important to young people. For many, this is the primary reason to go to college. Tim knows that the job market is com petitive. At college, they can learn new skill job careers with a lot of opportunities. This mean careen, such as information technology, that are expected to need a large work force in the coming years.
Also, students go to colleges and universities to have new experiences. This often means having the opportunity to meet people different from those in their hometowns. For most students going to college is the first time they`ve been away from home by themselves. In addition, this is the first time they`ve bad to make decisions on their own. Making these decisions increases their knowledge of themselves.
Besides looking for self-knowledge, people also attend a university or college to expand their knowledge in subjects they find interesting. For many, this will be their last chance job a long time to learn about something that doesn’t relate to their career.
I would recommend that people not he so focused on a career. They should go to college to have new experiences and learn themselves and the world they live in.
2- Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Parents are the best teachers. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
Throughout my life, I have been lucky enough to have a very good relationship with my parents. They have supported me, given me necessary criticism, and taught me a great deal about how to live my life. Parents can be very important teachers in our lives; however, they are not always the best teachers.
Parents may be too close to their children emotionally. Sometimes they can only see their children through the eyes of a protector. For example, they may limit a child`s freedom in the name of safety. A teacher might see a trip to a big city as a valuable new experience. However, it might seem too dangerous to a parent.
Another problem is that parents may expect their children`s interests to be similar to their own. They can`t seem to separate from their children in their mind. If they love science, they may try to force their child to love science too. But what if their child`s true low is art, or writing, or car repair?
Parents are usually eager to pass on their values to their children. But should chil dren always believe what their parents do? Maybe different generations need different ways of thinking. When children are young they believe that their parents are always right. But when they get older, they realize there are other views. Sometimes parents, especially older ones, can`t keep up with rapid social or technological changes. A student who has friends of all different races and backgrounds at school may find that his par ents have narrower views. A student who loves computers may find that her parents don`t really understand or value the digital revolution. Sometimes kids have to find their own ways to what they believe in.
The most important thing to realize is that we all have many teachers in our lives. Our parents teach us, our teachers teach us, and our peers teach us. Books and newspa pers and television also teach us. All of them are valuable.

3- Nowadays, food has become easier to prepare. Has this change improved the way people live? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
The twentieth century has brought with it many advances. With those advances, human lives have changed dramatically. In some ways life is worse, but mostly it is bet ter. Changes in food preparation methods, for example, have improved our lives greatly.
The convenience of preparing food today is amazing. Even stoves have gotten too slow for us. Microwave cooking is much easier. We can press a few buttons and a meal is completely cooked in just a short time. People used to spend hours preparing an oven-cooked meal, and now they can use that time for other, better things. Plus, there are all kinds of portable, prepackaged foods we can buy. Heat them in the office microwave, and lunch at work is quick and easy.
Food preparation today allows for more variety. With refrigerators and freezers, we can preserve a lot of
