This tool allows teachers to create quiz papers from 50 randomly selected multiple-choice questions. Each question is worth 2 points. An incorrect answer will cost students 1 point. If no answer is given, or if more than one answer is given for a question, no point will be awarded or taken away.
We recommend that students are given 30 minutes to complete the test. Dictionaries should not be allowed.
Questions cover vocabulary, grammatical and cultural aspects of the target language. A number of them are intentionally challenging. Teachers should emphasise to their students that they should not be discouraged by the difficulty of some questions. The aim is NOT to get every answer right. They just need to answer as many questions as they can.
It's worth noting that students are likely to be unfamiliar with some elements of vocabulary. Once again, they should not be put off; instead, they should be encouraged to develop coping strategies in order to infer meaning and make educated guesses (i.e. looking out for cognates, scanning for familiar words to deduct context and so on).
Preparing for the competition will help your students develop essential language learning skills so it is important to encourage them to practice as much as possible and ask questions along the way.
