KET Practice Tests

There is one question for each conversation.
For questions 1 to 5, put a tick under the
right answer.
Here is an example:
Which train are they going to catch?
M Are we going to catch the fast train tomorrow?
F ThatÕs the 10.15, isnÕt it? I think that will get us

there too late. WeÕll have to take the one at 9
oÕclock because we need to be there by 10.45
at the latest.


The answer is the 9 oÕclock train, so there is a
tick in box A.

Now we are ready to start.
Look at question One.
One: Which dress will Sally wear?
F Which dress shall I wear to the party?
M You always look nice in the black dress.
F ThatÕs my favourite dress but IÕll be too hot in

it this evening. I prefer the one with flowers on
it to the white one. What do you think?

M Yes, itÕs better for dancing in.

Now listen again . (Repeat)

Two: What time did the man leave the office?
M Sorry IÕm late. The trains were delayed.
F Not again. I rang the office at 6.30 and you

werenÕt there.
M No. I wanted to get home by 7 oÕclock to play

tennis, so I left early at 6 and then I had to wait
45 minutes for a train.

F Well, you can have the car tomorrow because
IÕm working from home.

Now listen again . (Repeat)

Three: Which photo shows the womanÕs
F These are my grandchildren. ThatÕs Jake, the

oldest. HeÕs ten.
F DoesnÕt he look like his mother? The same dark

F Yes but his sisters are quite different. TheyÕre like

their father. Poor Jake doesnÕt have a brother to
play with. I hope the new baby will be a boy.

F Yes, it would be nice for him.

Now listen again . (Repeat)

Four: What size shoes will they buy?
M Mum, these shoes are too small.
F Already? TheyÕre only three months old. I

thought we bought a size 40 so that you would
have lots of room to grow.

M These are only a 39. The 40 was much too big.
F Well, this time weÕll get a 41 to make sure you

can wear them for longer.

Now listen again . (Repeat)

Five: Where will they meet?
F The film starts at 8 so shall I meet you at the

cinema at 7.45?
M Why donÕt we meet at the cafŽ near the cinema?
F I wonÕt have time. ItÕll take me 20 minutes to

walk from the station and I canÕt leave work
before 7 today.

M OK. IÕll get there early to get the tickets.

Now listen again . (Repeat)
This is the end of Part One .

Now look at Part Two .
Listen to Tom telling his mother about the
sports classes he is doing.
What day will he do each sport?
For questions 6 to 10, write a letter A to H
next to each day.
You will hear the conversation twice.
F Which sports are you doing on each day this

year, Tom?
M On Monday itÕs swimming again.
F The same as last year Ð so on Tuesday will you

have rugby?
M I canÕt do it this year because weÕve got

football on that day.
F Oh. So what about Wednesday?
M I wanted to practise football with my friends

but the teacher said I had to do volleyball. Oh
Mum. ThereÕs a new class on Thursday.

F WhatÕs that then?
M We have to wear white jackets and trousers,

there are different colour belts and we have a
Japanese teacher.

F Karate? Well, I suppose thatÕs less dangerous
than rugby!

M And on Friday I had to choose between tennis
and basketball. All my friends wanted to do
basketball so I decided to do that because dad
can teach me tennis at the weekend.

F But not on Saturdays because youÕll have team
practice and matches for hockey then.

M Oh thatÕs right. I wonÕt have much time for any
other sports, will I?

F No! I think youÕre doing more than enough.

Now listen again . (Repeat)
This is the end of Part Two.

Now look at Part Three.
Listen to Sam telling a friend about his new
For questions 11 to 15, tick A, B or C.
You will hear the conversation twice.
Look at questions 11 to 15 now. You have 20
Now listen to the conversation.
M Hi Joe. ItÕs Sam.
M Hello Sam. HowÕs your new school?

KET Practice Tests

M It’s good, but it’s so big I keep getting lost.
And I’m very tired because I have to get up
earlier. I have to be in class at 8.30 so I have to
get to school by 8.15 – before I used to leave
home at 8.45.

M But do you like it?
M It’s strange without my old friends and the

journey to school is longer, but the sport is really
good; they’ve even got a swimming pool.

M What are the other boys like?
M They’re nice enough but they don’t listen to

the music we like and they all like Manchester

M That’s terrible. Are the teachers better?
M They’re not as boring anyway, and most of

them are young so they have new ways of
teaching. They are also easier to get on with;
you can tell them your problems.

M Mmmm. So are you doing all the same

M I have to learn another language. I’ve decided to
do Spanish. My Dad said I should do Russian or
Chinese – but they’ll be too difficult for me...

Now listen again. (Repeat)
This is the end of Part Three.

Now look at Part Four.
You will hear a conversation about a holiday
job in a hotel.
Listen and complete questions 16 to 20.
You will hear the conversation twice.
M Hello. This is Seaview Hotel. Jack speaking. Can

I help you?
F Yes. My name’s Isabelle Cummings. I’m ringing

to see if you have any holiday jobs for students
this summer.

M I’m afraid all the waitress jobs have gone, but
we have some jobs for cleaners left.

F That’s OK. When do you need people to start?
M Our busy time starts on 25 July, so we’d like

new workers to start on 15 July so they can
learn the job.

F Fine. And how many hours per day is it?
M We only have part-time work in the mornings

from 8 to 12, so you’ll have your afternoons

F Oh that’s good. And how much does it pay?
M Have you worked for us before?
F No.
M So you’ll get £6.00 per hour, otherwise you’d

get £6.50.
F I see. And who should I talk to if I want the job?
M The hotel manager – her name’s Mrs Pertwee;

that’s P E R T W, DOUBLE E.
F Great. Thanks very much for your help.
Now listen again. (Repeat)
This is the end of Part Four.

Now look at Part Five.
You will hear a tour guide in a museum
giving some information to visitors.
Listen and complete questions 21 to 25.
You will hear the information twice.
F I’d like to tell you all about our special summer

holiday activities for children at the Science
Museum today. This afternoon we have a special
show about fire. The children will find this very
exciting, but for younger children it may be a
little frightening so it’s only for 7 to 12 year olds.
That’s on in the main hall next to the main
entrance where you bought your tickets. The
cost for this show is £1.50 for adults and it’s free
for children. Unfortunately, because of safety
rules, children must have an adult with them.
The show lasts for one hour and starts at 2.30.
If you want to see the show you must get there
early because there is only space for fifty
children. Adults can stand at the back.
If you would like any more information about
the show, please come and ask me or any of
the other guides you see on your tour of the
museum. May I remind you that the museum
will close today at 6.30. Thank you for
listening. I hope you enjoy your visit.

Now listen again. (Repeat)
This is the end of Part Five.
This is the end of the test.

2 marks
One piece of information is missing. The message is clear, but there are basic grammar errors and it is
too short (candidates automatically lose 1 mark if their script is too short).
