5-Minute Aptis: Mini-Tests & Memory Games
We’ve all got busy lives, so here’s a compilation of all our mini-tests and memory games. Everyone can find the time for 5-minute Aptis ESOL practice! It’s a memorable and fun way to practise the grammar and the vocabulary you need for the Aptis Core Test. We always tell our students that it’s better to do a little practice every day than too much at once. And the more you practise, the better!
Our grammar and vocabulary exercises are designed to practise language at levels B1 and B2. We’ve chosen areas that our students often find problematic, and we’ll be adding to these all the time. Doing these ‘bite-sized’ tests when you’ve got five minutes to spare can really help. They’re useful for students doing Aptis ESOL General and Aptis ESOL for Teachers. At the end of each mini-test you’ll find links to the relevant posts. We’ll be adding to these every week, so remember to check back in.
The memory games give you a lighter way to practise for the vocabulary component of the Core Test. These will be useful for everyone, whatever Aptis test you’re doing. We’ll soon be adding more tests to cover each of the four question-types. So let’s warm up with those!
Adjective Synonym Pairs
Verb and Noun Collocation Pairs
You’ll find the rules in the B1, B2 & C1 Grammar Reference and more practice in “I wish” y “If only”.
You’ll find the rules in the B1, B2 & C1 Grammar Reference and more practice in Grammar: Prepositions of Time.
Again, you’ll find the rules in the B1, B2 & C1 Grammar Reference and another practice exercise in Grammar: Reported Speech.
There’s a brief review in Grammar: Zero, 1st & 2nd Conditionals and more details and examples in the B1, B2 & C1 Grammar Reference.
Try doing the picture story in Grammar: The 3rd Conditional, and the rules are in the B1, B2 & C1 Grammar Reference.
Again, you’ll find the rules in the B1, B2 & C1 Grammar Reference.
Hope you found this useful – we’ll be adding more tests all the time!

As an English teacher, I can easily say it is really enjoyable to do tests. I hope that I will be given a chance to do new tests soon.
Thanks, Naima. we’ll be posting more mini-tests soon – watch this space!
New test on ‘I wish’ and ‘If only’ available now!
I loved these mini-test, could you please add some more? Thanks!
That’s great to hear – thanks! We’ll be adding more very soon now we’re back from our holidays 😃🌞
I like to answer the mini-test. It helps me to improve my language skills in a fun way 😊
Hi Siti – we always say to our students to study ‘little and often’ is the best way to learn and you retain more information too. Good luck with your studies and thanks for taking the time to reply. All the best John and Chris 😊
Really helpful. Thanks. I could see some gaps in my grammar knowledge, unfortunately. Also got convinced in my current abilities. Thanks again for trying to help!
Hi Nilufar, Good to hear our tests have both given you confifdence in what you know and also pointed you towards what you need to revise! It’s an ongoing process, isn’t it – I still see gaps in my Spanish grammar too! 😜😘
These mini-test are really helpful. I’ve been studying English for many years and with different teachers and I’ve never found before both excellence in the explanation and the specific Spanish speakers confusing items. Thanks a lot! And don’t stop adding the mini-test, please.
Thanks for your appreciation & enthusiasm, Tania! it’s people like you who make us want to keep going! Have you tried our latest mini-test on False Friends? https://www.aptistutor.com/vocabulary-false-friends-confusing-words/ Good luck with your studies! 😀👍🏻😀
It’s really helpful. To improve our grammer skill point.Good luck
Good luck to you too Arif. All the best John and Chris
I enjoyed doing them. Thank you! Tests are easy for advanced learners? I think. But It is kind of warming up!
Hi Ziynatdin – yes, these mini-tests are aimed more at B2 learners (this is the level that most of our users take) When we have some time, we’ll get around to making some mini-tests for advanced learners. Good luck with your studies. All the best John and Chris
