This compilation of our mini-tests and memory games will give you 5-minute Aptis Core Test (grammar & vocab) practice when you have a few moments free. Have a go!
“What vocabulary and topics do I need for my Aptis test?” is a good question. The British Council gives no definitive list, but we can help you prepare.
‘What’s the best way to learn new vocabulary?’ is a question we’re often asked. These tips and techniques are useful for any language learner. Get yourself into good habits!
There are no definite rules about using adjectives plus prepositions. You just need to read and practise. It’s another example of collocation, as tested in the Aptis Core Test.
Should I use ‘make’ or’ ‘do’? These verbs are often the same in many European languages, which doesn’t help. Do I make my homework, or do my homework? Find out here!
We make many adjectives from verbs in English. But when do we use the adjective endings ‘ed’ and ‘ing’? Let’s look at common adjectives and how to decide which ending to use.
We’ve decided to introduce a new section: Get Ready for B1. This will cover lower-level language points and vocabulary areas that students usually study pre-B1.
A compliation of our Aptis Core Test practice for Aptis General, Aptis for Teachers and Aptis Advanced. Test your vocabulary and grammar and check out the differences in language use.
There are three main types of phrasal verbs. We look at the grammar behind using phrasal verbs successfully, and what you need to remember.
We use ‘I wish’ and ‘If only’ to make wishes about the present and the future, to express regrets about the past and to express annoyance about present behaviour or situations.
Spoken Grammar: Agreeing & Disagreeing. Part of the Aptis Core Test deals with the use of grammar when speaking, so practise and test this here.
“I’ve got some exercises for you on reported speech.” She told me she had some exercises for me on reported speech. Practise this important B2-level grammar point here.
Some more exercises for you to do when you have a few free minutes. This time we’re focusing on a tricky area: using prepositions of time. In, at, on, or no preposition at all?
When you have time, we’re sure you’ll want to practise these conditional structures that refer to the present and/or the future: zero, 1st & 2nd conditionals.
The 3rd conditional is the only one that refers to the past. We use it to talk about past situations that can no longer be changed; hypothetical situations. Practise using it here.
