The Cambridge English: Preliminary (PET) qualification shows that you have mastered the basics of English and now have practical language skills for everyday use.
The assessment covers the four skills; reading, writing, speaking and listening. During the speaking test the examiners give the students flash cards as prompts around which the students must converse.
Here are some examples of the flash cards used in these assessments.
