Aptis Writing: Prueba 2

Writing Test 2

Aptis Writing: Prueba 2

Aquí tienes otro examen de Aptis Writing con ejemplos de respuestas. Como ya hemos explicado, hemos redactado estas respuestas modelo en un nivel alto –B2.2– para ayudarte a mejorar.

Como ya sabes, el Writing de Aptis consta de cuatro partes, siempre basadas en el mismo tema (apuntarse a un club, hacer un curso, formar parte de un grupo de actividades, etc.). Estas cuatro partes se van complicando a medida que avanza la prueba. Recordemos lo que hay que hacer en cada parte.

  • Las respuestas de la primera parte son a nivel de palabras; tienes que escribir de una a cinco palabras en no más de tres minutos.
  • En la segunda parte hemos pasado a respuestas a nivel de frase; tienes que escribir de 20 a 30 palabras (dos o tres frases) en no más de siete minutos.
  • En la tercera parte tienes que escribir tres textos cortos de 30-40 palabras cada uno en no más de diez minutos.
  • Por último, en la cuarta parte debes escribir un correo electrónico informal de 40-50 palabras y un correo electrónico formal de 120-150 palabras. Deberás procurar hacer ambos en no más de treinta minutos.

 

Eso suma el total de 50 minutos. Sin embargo, siempre debes intentar dejar unos minutos libres al final de la prueba. Así podrás revisar tu trabajo en busca de errores evidentes. Por eso los tiempos que sugerimos no superan los X minutos. Lo ideal es que te propongas hasta un minuto menos en cada parte.

En Aptis Writing: Prueba 1 utilizamos el tema de unirse a un club de cine. En la Prueba 2, el tema es unirse a un club de comida.

Te recomendamos encarecidamente que realices la prueba por ti mismo antes de consultar el examen de Aptis writing con ejemplos de respuestas. Por esta razón, te vamos a dar primero el examen en blanco. Intenta hacerlo dentro de los tiempos sugeridos.

Regards

Aptis Writing con Ejemplos de Respuestas B2: Guión

Part One

You want to join ‘Food from around the World’ club, and you have 5 messages from a member of the club. Write short replies (1-5 words) to each message.

  1. How are you? I’m fine, thanks.
  2. Where are you from? I was born in Manchester.
  3. What’s your favourite season? I really like autumn.
  4. What’s your favourite animal? I love dolphins!
  5. How many people are in your family? There are five of us*.

 

Consejos: Intenta utilizar las cinco palabras, y utiliza expresiones conversacionales e informales. *Asegúrate de utilizar esta frase correctamente (no decimos ‘Somos cinco’).

 

Part Two

You are now a member of ‘Food from around the World’ club.  Please tell us why you are interested in food. Use 20–30 words.

My grandmother used to do the cooking, and I loved helping her in the kitchen. I also love travelling, and I’m really into trying food from different countries.

Consejo: Intenta evitar la repetición del lenguaje en la pregunta utilizando sinónimos. Por ejemplo: be into = be interested in.

 

Part Three

You are in the ‘Food from around the World’ club chat room. Answer the questions from other members. Use 30-40 words per answer.

Tim: Hi, and welcome to the club! What types of food do you like cooking?

I really enjoy trying to follow my grandmother’s recipes. She’s Nigerian and makes amazing dishes using yams and plantain. Recently I’ve also been experimenting with herbs and spices and different kinds of sauces.

AnitaWhat’s the best restaurant you’ve been to? What was it like?

I’d have to say The Black Swan, a curry house in Bradford. The décor makes you feel as if you’re really in India, and they specialise in South Indian dishes. The Goan fish curry is to die for!

Kofi: What’s the worst restaurant you’ve ever been to?

It was The Friendly Fish in Blackpool. The service was absolutely appalling. I had to wait 25 minutes for my meal. Then when it finally arrived, the chips were cold and greasy and the fish was frozen in the middle!

Consejo: Intenta utilizar vocabulario específico del tema, por ejemplo: recipes, dishes, herbs, spices, sauces, curry, service, meal, greasy, frozen

 

Part Four

As a member of ‘Food from around the World’ club, you receive this email:

Dear Member

Tarea 1: Write an email to your friend. Write about your feelings and what you think the ‘Food from around the World’ club should do about the situation. Write 40–50 words. You have 10 minutes. 

Hi Dave,

I’ve just read the email from Tyrone and I’m a bit annoyed. I’m not keen on putting off the meeting, as I won’t be around on the 26th. I think they should stick to the date, or look for a different chef. What do you reckon?

Cheers,

John

Tarea 2: Write an email to the president of the club. Write about your feelings and what you think ‘Food from around the World’ club should do about the situation. Write 120-150 words. You have 20 minutes.

Dear Mr. O’Neal,

I am writing to express my real disappointment at hearing the news that Jay Goffery will not be able to attend our annual meeting on the 19th. I am afraid I do not find your proposed solution acceptable, and I will explain why. If the meeting is postponed to the following week I will not be able to attend, as I will already have left for my holiday.

Therefore I would like to put forward an alternative suggestion. In my opinion, you should you write to Jay to ask him to cancel his other engagement and honour our original arrangement. If I remember correctly, he confirmed this date with us nearly a year ago. If he refuses, perhaps we should consider approaching another celebrity chef.

I look forward to hearing your reply.

Yours sincerely,

John Harrop

 

Consejos: Como hemos dicho antes, asegúrate de ceñirte al recuento de palabras y de responder a la pregunta en ambos casos. Es muy importante que demuestres que entiendes la diferencia entre un estilo informal y uno formal. Veamos algunos aspectos a tener en cuenta:

Informal: saludos (Hi, Hi there), utilizar contracciones (I’m, I’ll, etc), ser directo (I’m annoyed), los párrafos no son importantes, despedirse (Best, Cheers, See you, Bye)

Formal: saludos (Dear Mr/Ms X), utilizar formas completas, ser más tentativo (I am afraid …), los párrafos son muy importantes, despedirse (Kind regards, Best wishes, Yours sincerely)
