Check your Vocabulary for English for the PET Examination is designed to help candidates preparing for PET and will also give to all English-language learners the opportunity to practice and develop their vocabulary at this level. It covers most of the main topics and vocabulary areas examined by the PET examination.
PET is provided by University of Cambridge ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages Examinations), a department of the University of Cambridge in England. PET is part of the Main Suite of Cambridge English examinations, which is closely linked to the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework for modern languages (CEF).
The Preliminary English Test (PET) tests learners’ competence in all language skills – Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing – as well as assessing grammar and vocabulary with material from real-life situations, at a level approximately two thirds of the way towards FCE. It is the second level in the Cambridge ESOL five-level series of examinations – level B1 of the Common European Framework. PET recognises the ability to cope with everyday written and spoken communications and therefore provides evidence of practical skills. It indicates a candidate has sufficient ability to be of practical use in clerical, secretarial and managerial jobs, and in many industries such as tourism where contact with English speakers is required.
Studying for PET is a popular way to improve your language skills and use them in a wide range of contexts. PET is recognised by many employers and educational institutions as proof of intermediate-level English skills. Candidates who pass PET are expected to be at the Council of Europe Threshold Level (B1), which requires approximately 350 hours of English-language study. At this level, learners should be able to cope with language used in a range of everyday situations in their own or a foreign country and to communicate satisfactorily with both native and non-native speakers of English. They should also be able to deal with texts like street signs, public notices, forms, brochures, instructions, city guides, short personal messages such as e-mails and Post-it messages, informal letters, newspaper articles, weather forecasts, etc. The PET syllabus is designed to reflect the use of language in real life and takes a communicative approach to learning English, without neglecting the need for clarity and accuracy .
