Looking for Real Books

A Word on Libraries at AACI

There are two libraries at AACI to help you with your FCE needs.

The general library is called British Cultural Library
1st floor
Open Monday to Fridays from 11 am to 12.30 pm and from 1 pm to 7 pm

You can consult books as well as newspapers and magazines. Books are available in simplified forms too.

The specialised library is called National Resources Centre (NRC)
5th floor
Open Monday to Thursdays from 10 am to 1 pm and from 1.30 pm to 5 pm
Fridays from 10 am to 1 pm

Here you can find other FCE course books, practice tests books with answers. Books for phonetics practice, vocabulary, phrasal verbs and idioms.

The dictionary collection is quite complete. Let me recommend a look at the Oxford Collocations Dictionary. It may prove very useful when you are looking for differences among near synonyms. Or when solving the Use of English multiple choice exercise. Try it.

Learning Land
1st basement. Room 22
Open most of the day -with a break for lunch- until 7.15 pm.
This is not a library, although you might borrow simplified readers. This is the place to get extra practice for most parts of your test. There is a wide collection of listening papers other than the ones we are using in class. And a big plus: there is a teacher to guide you through the maze of practice available. You can't miss it!
