Aptis for Teachers Vocabulary Practice Test 3
Here’s another free Aptis for Teachers vocabulary test designed especially for teachers. It includes typical themes and scenarios that you may come across in your teaching life. Our tests closely follow official exam format, and we’ve set exam time-limits too.
Remember, the Aptis Core Test consists of the vocabulary and grammar components. You have to answer 50 questions in 25 minutes in total, equally divided between the two linguistic areas. So you have 25 questions to do in 12.5 minutes in the vocabulary component of the test. This means you can take up to 30 seconds per question. If you take too long doing the tests, they’ll automatically finish and you’ll have to start again.
There are four question-types: word pairs, word definitions, word usage and word combinations. Before each mini-test we’ll give you a clear description and an example of each question-type.
For a more detailed description go to Aptis for Teachers: Vocabulary Practice Test 1.
Remember to keep these points in mind while you’re doing the tests:
- Read all of the options carefully before choosing your answer. Some of them may be quite similar.
- Don’t spend too long on any of the questions. Remember, you can always come back and try it again later, both here and in the official exam.
- Always answer the question. Never leave it blank.
Aptis for Teachers: Vocabulary Test 3
Part 1: Word Pairs
You’ll see a target word in the following format: ‘sign up = ‘. You have to select the option that has the most similar meaning to that word; in this case, ‘enrol’.
Part 2: Word Definitions
You’re given a definition this time. You have to select a word to match to the definition. For example, ‘to practise for the school show is to …’ ‘rehearse’.
Part 3: Word Usage
Here you have to select a word to complete each sentence correctly. For example, ‘The college is offering [ presential / physical / face-to-face ] courses next term’. The correct answer here is ‘face-to-face‘.
Part 4: Word Combinations
You have to combine words that are often used together; this is called collocation. For example, we say ‘distance learning‘, ‘attend a lecture’ ‘poor grades’.
