Aptis Advanced Writing Task 1: Social Network Chat Video script

Preparar el examen Aptis Advanced - Writing

During the second part of the Aptis Advanced speaking test, you will be asked about a personal experience of your own. You will be asked to answer to 3 different questions, but in the form of a mini-presentation. You will be given 1 minute to prepare your answer. During that time, you should quickly write down any specific expressions or vocabulary that you would like to use in your response.

You should attempt to think of some high-level expression and vocabulary items that you know to use in this task. You need to speak for 2 full minutes to successfully complete this part of the test. It is recommended that you talk for approximately 1 minute about the first question and for 30 seconds about the second and third questions each.

In order to fill the 2 minutes of speaking time required from you in this task, it is important that you structure your response into the form of a small presentation. Your reply should consist of a beginning, middle and end part, which you link together with connecting words and sentences. You should practice this task multiple times ahead of the exam with a timer or a stopwatch to make sure you will be able to speak for the required time.

You should also make sure you are able to prepare your answer well, even under time pressure, as you will be given only 1 minute for the preparation process. Before you begin to answer, make sure you understand the questions fully and correctly, and watch out for any key words in the questions that will help you to formulate an appropriate response.

Remember to keep your notes simple and short. Rather than writing down full sentences or even attempting to write down your entire response, focus on noting down keywords and points that you want to mention in your answer or some specific expressions and vocabulary that you want to include in your response. Don’t try to memorize an answer beforehand, as your response will then most likely end up being off topic and inappropriate to the question, and your speaking will seem unnatural.

Down below, you will find an example task and you can see that each paragraph of the response replies to one of the questions from the task. You can see that the reply was structured like a small presentation in order to make it logical and clear. In order to give a good response, you should begin by giving a simple answer to the question asked, and then move on to develop your answer by bringing in your own opinions, examples and reasons that support and relate to your answer.

This task will be graded with regards to the following areas:

1. Task fulfilment


2. Topic relevance3. Grammatical range and accuracy
4. Vocabulary range and accuracy5. Pronunciation6. Fluency and Cohesion
