El Core Test de Aptis: Vocabulario y Gramática

Puedes practicar la gramática y el vocabulario que necesitas para el Core Test de Aptis con esta recopilación de nuestras pruebas de práctica para todos los exámenes Aptis.

¿Sabes lo que es el Core Test de Aptis? Es la parte que trata de la gramática y el vocabulario.  Tienes que hacer 50 preguntas en 25 minutos.  Las preguntas se dividen a partes iguales entre vocabulario y gramática. 

El componente gramatical de la prueba contiene 25 preguntas en un formato de elección múltiple de 3 opciones.  El componente de vocabulario de la prueba también contiene 25 preguntas, y hay cuatro tipos de preguntas.

Nuestros estudiantes siempre nos piden que les expliquemos la diferencia entre los tres exámenes principales de Aptis, y hemos pensado que la mejor manera de explicarlo es mostrándotelo. Así que en este post podrás comparar el contenido y el nivel de cada prueba. Por supuesto, esto será especialmente útil para los profesores que se preguntan qué test hacer. ¡Pero de todos modos, sea cual sea el examen que vayas a hacer, toda práctica es buena práctica!

Hay diferentes versiones de los minitest para Aptis General, Aptis for Teachers y Aptis Advanced. Todos nuestras pruebas de práctica reflejan el formato de Aptis muy de cerca.

El Core Test de Aptis: Pruebas de vocabulario

Hemos decidido hacer las preguntas de vocabulario en cuatro partes para poder centrarnos en los cuatro tipos de preguntas. Esto también te da tiempo para pensar. Sólo para recordarte, los cuatro tipos son: pares de palabras, definiciones de palabras, uso de palabras y combinaciones de palabras. Hay 25 preguntas en total, como en el examen oficial, y el tiempo es el mismo.

Aquí tienes los test de las cuatro partes del Test de Vocabulario de Aptis. Comenzaremos con Aptis General, para luego pasar a Aptis para Profesores y Aptis Advanced.

Tienes un máximo de 30 segundos por pregunta, como en el examen oficial. Si tardas demasiado, el cuestionario terminará automáticamente.

Al final de cada sección encontrarás enlaces a los posts correspondientes. Estos contienen información más detallada sobre las pruebas, además de consejos generales y sugerencias para el examen.

Part 1:  Word Pairs
