Aptis for Teachers Writing: Prueba 3

En este Writing con modelo respuestas B2 repasamos el examen de los profesores y explicamos cómo elevar tus respuestas a un buen nivel B2. Recuerda leer Aptis for Teachers Writing: Prueba 1 y el Resumen del Writing si necesitas más detalles sobre el examen.

En cada una de las cuatro partes del examen se te da un recuento de palabras, y debes ceñirte a él. Como profesores, estamos seguros de que estáis familiarizados con el concepto de cumplimiento de la tarea. Si no cumples con la tarea, no recibirás las mejores calificaciones, por muy bueno que sea tu inglés. ¡Así que asegúrate de seguir las instrucciones! En el examen real, debes editar tus respuestas antes de hacer clic en la siguiente pregunta.

El tema de este examen de práctica es unirse a una organización llamada ‘Educación para todos’. Su objetivo es mejorar la educación en los países en desarrollo de todo el mundo. De nuevo, te vamos a dar primero la hoja de examen en blanco, porque queremos que la pruebes tú mismo antes de ver el writing con respuestas modelo B2. Te recomendamos que hagas el test en condiciones de examen, así que pon un cronómetro. Tienes 50 minutos en total, y te damos un tiempo sugerido para cada pregunta. Hacer estas pruebas por ti mismo te ayudará mucho a preparar el día del examen.

Nuestros consejos:

  • antes de empezar a escribir, asegúrate de que entiendes perfectamente las preguntas
  • responde a las preguntas sin salirte del tema
  • respeta el recuento de palabras, no lo sobrepases
  • utiliza la gramática y el vocabulario adecuados al nivel
  • revisa la ortografía y la puntuación
  • utiliza una variedad de estructuras oracionales
  • utliza párrafos en las partes tres y cuatro

Dear Member

We are writing to inform you that we have decided to cancel the charity brunch you have been involved in organising. As you know, the event was planned to take place in two weeks, but unfortunately there are still only thirty people signed up.

Please understand that as we had expected at least 100 attendees, we would definitely make a loss if we held the event as planned. So, very regrettably, we have no choice but to cancel it due to lack of support.

We apologise to those members who have already done so much to organise the brunch, and we want you to know how much we appreciate all the work you’ve done.

Johnny Jessop

Part Two

Before you go on the exchange visit, you have a form to complete. Use 20–30 words.

Suggested time: 7 mins.

How much time can you dedicate to the organisation, and when’s the best time to meet?

I work full-time, so I don’t have a lot of spare time. After 5pm and at weekends are ideal, though this will change in the school holidays.

Lenguaje destacado: expresiones con ‘time’

You can work part-time or full-time. You may also be able to work flexitime, which means having flexible hours rather than a fixed timetable.

Many of us don’t have much spare time or free time these days, so it’s important to use your time well. Try to spend time doing things you enjoy, as well as working! Find some ideal times for hobbies within your routine.

 

Part Three

Before you attend your first meeting, you have the opportunity to chat online to the other members. Talk to them using sentences. Use 30-40 words for each answer.

Suggested time 10 mins.

Benji: I’m one of the founding members, and I’d like to know why you decided to join.

Well, Im about to retire and my children have all grown up and left home. I wanted to do something useful with my time, so I thought I could offer my experience to the teaching community.

Akbar: What type of volunteer work would you like to do?

I’m not really sure yet. As I’ve spent my entire professional career teaching maths, I could teach numeracy skills – or something more advanced, like bookkeeping or accounting. But I’m wondering about trying something different.

Nur: We’ve just heard that we’re going to get funding from the government. How do you think the money should be spent?

To be honest, right now I haven’t got a clue! But I’m sure that once I’ve been to a few meetings and done some research, I’ll have a better idea of the areas we should concentrate on.

Lenguaje destacado:

Etapas de la vida: children grow up, leave home (stop living at home with parents), work, retire

Expresiones de incertidumbre: I’m not really sure / I’m wondering about

Decir que no sabes: I haven’t got a clue! / I’ve got no idea

You can also have/get a good idea or a better idea of something.

Task 1: Write an email to your friend who is also a member. Write about your feelings and what you think about the situation. Write 40-50 words.

Suggested time 10 mins.

Hi Sophia,

Have you seen the secretary’s message? I’m really fed up, as I’ve already spent so much time working out all the details. Why are they giving up so quickly? I’m sure that if they advertised it better, more people would come to the brunch.

Best,

Chris

Lenguaje destacado:

fed up: sinónimo coloquial de «molesto»

work out, give up: phrasal verbs para «calcular/organizar» y «dejar de intentar hacer algo» (recuerde que los phrasal verbs suelen ser más informales, por lo que son muy adecuados para este correo electrónico)

 

Task 2: Write an email to the management. Write about your feelings and what you think about the situation. Write 120-150 words.

Suggested time 20 mins.

Dear Mr. Jessop

I am writing in response to your email about the cancellation of the brunch. Although I appreciate that the organisation would lose money if only thirty people attended, I feel that you are abandoning the event too swiftly.

Perhaps it would be possible to save the brunch by organising some promotional activities? For example, you could place advertisements on popular websites, or hand out flyers to distribute in the area.

I also think it would be a good idea if you, or the president of ‘Education for Everybody’, did an interview with the local TV station. We need to emphasise the importance of raising money to improve education in developing countries.

As you mention in your email, many of us have spent time and effort organising the charity brunch, so I encourage you to make more of an attempt to save this event.

Yours sincerely,

Chris Guest

Lenguaje destacado:

Fíjate en el uso del segundo condicional en general, y de los verbos modales «could» y «would» para hacer sugerencias. Esto suaviza el tono del correo electrónico y lo hace más formal. El uso de «perhaps» o «maybe» tiene el mismo efecto.
