Aptis Advanced Grammar test

Aptis Advanced: Grammar Practice Test 1

Aptis Advanced: a C1-level grammar test. 25 questions in a three-option multiple-choice format, adhering to official exam timing. This time we’re concentrating on written grammar.

Mixed Conditionals

Advanced Grammar: Mixed Conditionals

Advanced Grammar: Mixed Conditionals Let’s begin with what we know: the zero conditional is used to talk about universal truths, the first for likely present

Advanced Grammar: complex passives

Advanced Grammar: Complex Passives

At C1 level you need to know more than the basic passive in all the tenses, so it’s time to look at some more complex passive forms. Recognising and being able to use these forms will help you do well in your Advanced Aptis test, particularly in the writing tasks.

Gerund or Infinitive

Grammar: Gerund or Infinitive?

There are no hard and fast rules to tell us which verbs take the gerund (-ing form), which are followed by to + infinitive, and which can take both forms; you just have to learn them.

The grammar of phrasal verbs

Grammar: Phrasal Verbs

There are three main types of phrasal verbs. We look at the grammar behind using phrasal verbs successfully, and what you need to remember.

Grammar mini-test – I wish & if only

Grammar: ‘I wish’ and ‘If only’

We use ‘I wish’ and ‘If only’ to make wishes about the present and the future, to express regrets about the past and to express annoyance about present behaviour or situations.

The language of agreeing & disagreeing

Grammar: Agreeing & Disagreeing

Spoken Grammar: Agreeing & Disagreeing. Part of the Aptis Core Test deals with the use of grammar when speaking, so practise and test this here.
