For B1 Preliminary Reading Section Exercise 4 Set 3, it tells about a weekend trip to an activity centre in the countryside. It provides practice for this reading section of the Cambridge English B1 Preliminary exam. 

There are five multiple-choice questions with four options. In answering these questions, candidates will demonstrate whether they have understood the writer’s purpose, the writer’s attitude or opinion, or an opinion quoted by the writer, and both the detailed and global meaning of the text.

Exercise 4 Set 3

Read the text and answer the questions below.

A month ago I had no idea that on Sunday afternoon in July I'd be 50 metres above the ground and enjoying it. Now I looked down at the river far below me., and realised why people love rock climbing.

My friend Will and I had arrived at the Activity Centre on Saturday evening. The accommodation wasn't great, but we had everything we needs; beds, blankets and some food plus we were pleased to be out of the city and in the fresh air.

On Sunday morning we met the other ten members of our groups. James had come along with two friends, Harry and George, while sisters Maria and Sara had come with Isabella. We had come for many different places so none of us knew the area.

We knew we were going to spend some time outdoors, but none of us was sure exactly how. Half of us spent the morning caving while the others went rock-climbing and then we changed at lunchtime. Will and I went to the caves first. Climbing out was harder than going in, but after a good deal of pushing, we went out at last - covered in mud, but pleased and excited by what'd done.

The more words you encounter and understand, the broader your day-to-day vocabulary will become. So, our B1 Word searches are an excellent way to help to reinforce spellings.
