Hello autumnking!
Well, the most important thing is to keep practicing before your test. You should see this website as a library – just borrow whatever will help you! A good place to start is our Elementary Podcasts. These are short radio shows about different topics. To help your listening, vocabulary and grammar, you can listen to them, read the transcripts, and do the exercises. You can talk to other learners in the comments, too. There is lots of other material in our Listen and Watch section as well. If you want to work on grammar, take a look at our grammar section.
Don't forget that we also have a search box. Put a topic you're interested in into the box – like 'meeting people' or 'the present simple' - and you'll get a list of pages about that topic.
Good luck in your exam,
Jeremy Bee

I think "Big city small world" is easier than "Elementary podcasts". EP's lessons are so long.

hi to all ,
I want to know that from where can i  listen to a audio containing content on a particular matter except episodes and videos.
for example: i got an audio from this website (air bus).

Hello harshit!
Well, you could browse our listen and watch sections. Take a look at the magazine and the stories and poems section. Our business section also has more serious listenings.
You could also try using our search function. Think of a topic you're interested in - say, culture, or the environment - and enter it into the search box at the top right of the web page. This will give you plenty of links!

I've a question about a phrase of this episode : why does Harry say "He doesn’t have to work here any more"? I mean ,why doesn't he use "to want" ? e.g. : he doesn't want to work ...
