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.
We look at the main uses of the present perfect tense: recent past with present result, experiences, and actions that started in the past and are still continuing now.
There are four main steps to consider when you want to use passive forms. Let’s revise the basics for changing active to passive & vice-versa.
‘Have something done’ (the causative ‘have’) is another passive form. We use it when we arrange (and usually pay) for someone else to do something for us.
We look at the language you need to know at levels B1, B2 & C1, both in terms of functions (what you do with the language) and grammar (which structures you need to use).
We explain more about the Aptis Tests & the Speaking Test format and give you more details about the CEFR, especially levels B1 & B2. Plus useful links to relevant official sites.
