If you would like to know more about the section A of the written expression test of the TEF and how to prepare for it, then this article is for you!
In the section A, the objective is to convey information.
You have to write the continuation of a text in a coherent and relevant way. Don’t forget to provide details, explanations and new information that does not appear in the statement.
Therefore, we advise you to read the topic carefully, and then use the title to get inspired to imagine what will happen next.
In order for you to practice, you can consult the tutorial and the preparation workshop dedicated to the written expression test (in French).
During section A of the written expression test, you will be evaluated based on :
• the relevance of the information you transmit (are they in line with the subject?) ;
• the quality of the information (examples, details, illustrations) ;
• the overall coherence of the text, the quality of the sentences and the vocabulary you use (variety, precision) ;
• the syntax and punctuation.
