Aptis for Teachers: Speaking Practice Test 4
Thanks to everybody who took part in our recent YouTube poll. Aptis for Teachers Speaking Tests received the most votes, so here’s our new Speaking Practice Test for teachers.
This is the mock-exam version, and the version with B2 answers will be out very soon too.
Before we give you the questions, let’s have another quick look at what you have to do in the test and how long you have to speak for.
In Part One you have to answer three questions and give personal information. You have 30 seconds per answer.
Part Two is a picture description. You have to describe what you see, then answer two more questions on the subject. You have 45 seconds per answer.
In Part Three you have to compare two pictures, then answer two more questions on the subject. You also have 45 seconds per answer in this part.
Part Four is the longest part. You have to discuss personal experience and give opinions. They ask you three questions and give you one minute to plan your answers and take notes. Then you have two minutes in total to cover all three questions.
Remember to try to use all the time available and answer as fully as possible throughout. In Part Four make sure you address each of the three aspects. Task fulfilment is important, as in all exams.
Here are the questions for this Aptis for Teachers Speaking Test.
