- The benchmark for testing the proficiency of English of a candidate is really set at a high level. So when a candidate thinks about taking the test, he should first assess his depth of knowledge in the English language.
- If you want to learn fast, then work harder. Learn in a scientific and systematic way. Be patient you can’t learn overnight.
- When you are learning ‘Spoken English,’ right from the word go start speaking and thinking in English.
Thinking in English? Sounds strange? But its’ a must for learner. Basically, learners from Non-English speaking countries think in their mother tongue and then translate into English. Its’ a completely wrong way, you must think in English.
Try your best to overcome your ‘Mother Tongue Bias.’ Its’ one of the biggest problems in case of the ‘Non-Native English Speakers.’ Read something loudly, record it using any device, then listen the recorded version to spot the difference and try to rectify it by repeating the process.
When you are learning ‘Spoken English,’ right from the word go start speaking and thinking in English.
Try to take up more mock tests and sample tests for more clarity and confidence.
