Here's a video I made with a sample FCE listening test.
Of course the quality isn't quite as good as from Cambridge, but it's free, and I'll explain all the answers. Pretty good, right?
Answers and Explanations
A reminder of the options:
a - My partner left me for my sister
b - I didn't like my partner's new hobby
c - My partner developed a strange smell
d - My partner became obsessed with the movie 'Titanic'
e - My partner's mother was too bossy
f - I found someone more attractive
g - My partner lost all our money
h - I discovered my partner had another relationship
The first thing is a distractor - all that talk about movies - maybe the answer is D? No, the movie isn't the reason she left her partner, and anyway, she mentions a totally different movie.
The mention of the sister at the end is another distractor, because the real answer is G. The guy lost all their money playing poker.
What's going on here? Well, the girlfriend becomes interested in the Minions and ends up dressing up like a Minion and talking like a Minion. That makes B the right answer. The mention of 'expense' is a distractor - some students would choose G because it seems to be about money.
There's a distractor here about the smell - but answer C says 'developed a smell' and speaker 3 says that the man always had a smell.
Of course the right answer is H, because the partner already had a relationship - he was married.
This starts with a distractor by mentioning Titanic (answer D) - but that's not the reason the couple broke up. There's also mention of the sister (answer A) but the guy didn't change from one sister to another. No, he met someone hotter, meaning more attractive, and ended the relationship he was in.
Another mention of Titanic - surely it's the answer this time? No, it's just a comparison of the relationship and the ship. The real answer is E, because telling people what to do is the same as being bossy.
