B2 Key Word Transformation 1 is an exercise at an upper intermediate level of English that focuses on vocabulary and grammar. It is practice for Part 4 of the Reading and Use of English section of the Cambridge B2 First Exam.
Each question consists of a sentence followed by a ‘key’ word and a second sentence with a gap in the middle. You have to use this word to complete the second sentence so that it has a similar meaning to the first sentence.

Grammar exercises available for this part of the test:
You need to be able to understand a range of texts, including how they are organised and the opinions and attitudes expressed in them. The texts will be from sources familiar to you, such as magazines, articles, fiction and advertisements, but targeted at the interests of students.
Students’ use of English will be tested by tasks that show how well they can control their grammar and vocabulary.
You are required to produce two pieces of writing. The first piece is compulsory and will be an essay of 140-190 words. For the second, you can choose from an article, email/letter, essay, review or report (B2 First for schools the report is replaced with a story) of 140-190 words.
