Innehåll

The national test is divided up into three parts:

Speaking - team talks done during week 37, Sep 7-11th

The topic for this year's speaking-test is:

"We spend our whole lives learning things, sometimes without even noticing it - everything from walking and talking, to being able to use a computer, or speaking a new language. And, there are also many more, abstract skills that we need in life."

A test where you will sit with 1-2 classmates and discuss something specific. You will get 20 minutes to prepare for the test by reading the instructions in the test papers, taking some notes and thinking through what you could say about the topic. You will then have the discussion with your group and be recorded for 20 minutes in another room. 

What is it we are looking specifically at?

  • Your communication skills: how you interact with people (commenting on what they say, listen to them, agreeing or disagreeing, making the conversation "move forward")
  • Your language; grammar and vocabulary (ordförråd) and if you have a good flow in your language (pronounciation and fluency)
  • The contents - if you are able to discuss something thoroughly or just on the surface (ytligt eller på djupet). Try to explain what you mean and say more than just "This is what I think." 

Writing - DATE: September 18th (80 min) 

You will write an essay about something specific. Make sure you read the instructions carefully and make a bullet point list for yourself to organize/structure your writing. You can use the computer or write by hand.

What is it we are looking specifically at?

  • Your language; grammar and vocabulary (ordförråd) and if you have a good flow in your language (pronounciation and fluency)
  • The contents - if you are able to write about something in a thorough (utförligt) or just shallow (ytligt) way. Try to explain and give examples of what you mean and say more than just "This is what I think." 
  • The structure - if you can write pedagogically so that the reader becomes interested and can easily follow your train of thought (din tankekedja). If you have correct paragraphs and punctuation (kommatering, dvs punkt, komma osv. på rätt ställe)!

Reading comprehension (Läsförståelse) - DATE: Sep 25th (90 minutes) 

Listening comprehension (Hörförståelse) - DATE: Oct 2nd (50 minutes) 

The reading and listening tests are 80 minutes and 50 minutes long. You will get a 20 minute break in between. Here your reading and listening skills are tested and it is important that you try to write as clearly as possible. Spelling errors are not affecting your grades as much here.
