Aptis Writing: Prueba 3

Aquí practicamos otra vez el Writing de Aptis con ejemplos de buenas respuestas. 

A estas alturas ya sabes que el Writing de Aptis consta de cuatro partes, siempre basadas en el mismo tema.  Para obtener información más detallada sobre lo que tienes que hacer en cada parte, dirígete al Writing: Resumen y Consejos o mira uno de los exámenes anteriores.

En la Prueba 1 utilizamos el tema de unirse a un club de cine y en la Prueba 2 a un club de comida. En esta ocasión el tema es unirse a un gimnasio.

Como siempre, te recomendamos que hagas el test tú mismo antes de mirar el test de escritura con respuestas modelo. Así podrás comparar tus respuestas con las del modelo y ver qué aspectos debes mejorar.  Y cuanto más practiques, mejor lo harás. Así que primero te vamos a dar la hoja de examen en blanco. 

Intenta hacer la prueba dentro del tiempo de examen de 50 minutos.  Puedes tomarte el tiempo que necesites para cada parte, pero te hemos hecho sugerencias para ayudarte a no perder de vista el reloj. Recuerda que debes dejar unos minutos libres al final del examen para poder revisar tu trabajo.

Dear Members

We are writing to inform you that from next week the gym will be closed at weekends for two months. This is due to that fact that we need to renovate the changing rooms and showers. We have decided that Saturdays and Sundays will be the best days to carry out this work, as attendance is much lower then. We apologise for the inconvenience, and hope you will understand that it is for the benefit of everyone.

The Management

Task 1

(Tiempo sugerido 10 minutos.)

Write an email to your friend who is also a member of the gym. Write about your feelings and what you think about the situation. Write 40–50 words.

Task 2

(Tiempo sugerido 20 minutos.)

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

 

Como siempre, cuando hayas terminado de escribir, revisa tu trabajo. Busca:

  • errores ortográficos y de puntuación
  • los errores gramaticales (por ejemplo, los tiempos verbales, las terminaciones de la tercera persona, las preposiciones incorrectas)
  • uso correcto de los párrafos
  • el recuento correcto de palabras

I’m only free at weekends, preferably mornings. I’m interested in losing weight, as I’ve put on 5kg during lockdown! So High-Intensity Interval Training would be ideal.

 

Part Three

Before you start at the gym, you have to opportunity to chat online to the other members. Talk to them using sentences. Use 30-40 words for each answer. (Suggested time 10 minutes.)

Ana: Is this the first time you’ve been to a gym?

Not really – I used to be a member of ‘Train that Body’, but that was when I was a student. I haven’t been to the gym since then, so I’m feeling a bit nervous, but excited too.

Belen: Why did you join?

I’ve recently moved to the area, and I don’t know many people yet. So I thought it could be a good way to make new friends while keeping fit and in shape at the same time.

Carlos: I love tennis – what’s your number one sport, and why?

I’m not sure whether you’d call it a sport, but I’ve been doing yoga for many years now, and I’m really into it. I find it good for mental as well as physical health.

 

Part Four

After being a member of the gym for a few weeks, you receive this email from the gym management.

The Management

Task 1

Write an email to your friend who is also a member of the gym. Write about your feelings and what you think about the situation. Write 40–50 words. (Suggested time 10 minutes.)

Hi Lola,

Have you seen that they want to close the gym at weekends? I’m really angry, as that’s the only time I can make it. I’d even told them I could only do weekend sessions! It’s out of order, don’t you think?

Cheers,

Chris

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 minutes.)

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing in response to your email about the weekend closure of the gym. While I appreciate that this work needs to be done, I know I am not the only member who will find this arrangement unacceptable.

I feel you could have informed me of these renovation plans before you accepted my application. I made it very clear when I joined the gym that I could only attend at weekends. Therefore I was surprised and also rather annoyed to receive your email.

I understand that it is never possible to please all the people all the time. However, I have a suggestion to make. Would it be possible to alternate the days you close? That way nobody would feel unjustly penalised, it would be fairer all round and the work could still be completed in the same time.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Guest
