It had been a long time in the making: in the fall of 2019 students Nicole Wisniewska, Fabian Beckmann, Niklas Bischof and Vicky Weber (all Q2) set out to prepare for their Cambrige examination. They spent afternoons honing their reading, their listening and their essay-writing skills, disambiguating and construing.
