    Yo hice muchos "writings" con ese libro para preparar el C2, el problema es que nadie me los corregía porque los hacía por mi cuenta. Así que no sé si estaban bien ni cómo mejorarlos.

    5:59 – Qué pronunciación tan rara la de "paragraph", supongo que es porque lo pronuncias a la británica.

    Hello, I would like to thank you for uploading videos on the C2 Proficiency exam as I personally find them quite helpful. My exam is due on the 13 of July and I've just started preparing myself for it and I'm feeling a bit insecure about it, as I thought it would be easier. I've bought the 'Objective Proficiency' book and I'm working on it everyday, but I'm searching on the internet for C2 exams so I can practise and I can't find much to work with. Do you have any C2 exam papers or do you know any website that does? Thank you!

    Thank you for all your tips! I am preparing for the CPE, but I am not sure wether is too risky to do it now in July, as I haven’t prepared it properly. How long did you take to prepare for the CPE? I haven’t paid the exam fee yet, as I think Ive been to adamant to go for this July. Ive got several of the books you have recommended. Could you (or anyone who has done the exam) give me some advice? Thank you!

    Great video! I'm from the Canary Islands and it's good to see another another spaniard who have passed the CPE. I'm working on it for this winter. I've an English degree but I haven't used the language for the last 3 years, so I need to regain confidence. It'd be amazing if you keep making videos on CPE…there's no much good stuff. Suscribed!
