Some English related thing – GRE wordlist

http://ru.androlib.com/android.application.com-littleapps-grewords-zCzDj.aspx

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a standardized test that is an admission requirement for many graduate schools in the United States, in other English-speaking countries and for English-taught graduate and business programmes world-wide. Created and administered by Educational Testing Service (or ETS) in 1949, the exam aims to measure verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, analytical writing and critical thinking skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and that are not related to any specific field of study. The GRE General Test is offered as a computer-based, computer adaptive exam administered by selected qualified testing centers; however, paper-based exams are offered in areas of the world where computer-based testing is not available. (Wikipedia)

English part is the hardest in GRE. Even fluently English Speaking folks have a haaard time with the Verbal part. Huh.

I do the job in COrporate company. My English is weak. Please tell me how can i improve my english.?

This is how I would answered (and that’s how I did answer)

Unfortunately, there is no quick way to do this.

I would recommend you to ask a more specific question, because this type of question can only be answered vaguely.

Basically, I would recommend first identifying your weak points in English, as well as getting a REPUTABLE source of information. (good books, etc)

Having a good teacher helps a LOT.

There is no shortcut in learning a language, but I do know that there are teachers that, for example, can teach a foreigner (adults even) the basics of a language in THREE days.

Even if you do know the basics of a language (sentence structures, nouns, etc…) you will still need vocabulary.

Theory -> consistant practice in good amount -> feedback/adaptation -> Theory …

Those my English Speaking Tips heh.

Learning Efl by Bengali Speaking Learners

http://wbz4life.com/learning-efl-by-bengali-speaking-learners-major-linguisti…

Foreign language learning occurs in the formal situation of a classroom, and the learner has hardly any access to the target language beyond the classroom door (Brown 2001). And in this formal situation, he/she receives instruction and practises in the items entirely related to the basic skills of the target language– listening, speaking, reading and writing. That is, the items taught and learned are linguistically related to and considered at different levels– phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics. While learning the foreign language, the learner usually encounters varied linguistic problems that evidently handicap and hamper his/her learning and eventually negatively affect his/her general proficiency as well. This phenomenon is also found in the learning of English as a foreign language (EFL) by the Bengali speaking learner.

 

By the way, I’ve already completed my 2nd part of my article series that teaches you how to improve your American English Accent

Check it out this Spoken English Tutorial now. It is about pronouncing vowels and consonants and some linguistic nuances.

A good Accent fixing book

http://www.amazon.com/dp/0764173693/?tag=englspeatips-20

I do agree with the other reviewers that it is an excellent book written by a professional with extensive experience. It comes with 6 CD and almost 200-page book with detailed explanations of intonation patterns and sounds. Additionally, in the appendix Ann Cook discusses in detail what are the typical accents of native speakers of common languages, and what specifically the native speakers of these languages should work on.

The chief difficulty with working with a course like this is that the learner should not only repeat after the speaker, but should also be able to hear his/her own words to make the necessary corrections. If you keep on repeating the same mistake, but do not hear it and cannot correct yourself – what’s the point of practicing? My solution is to practice with a computer. I tried a simple sound recorder on a computer as well as a tape recorder, and it did not work – too complicated, invoves too much button pressing. You need a program which plays a phrase, then records you repeating it, then repeats the native speaker, then plays your recording, and does it all over again in a loop until you are satisfied. It turned out that it is not easy to find a program like this; after a long search, I found a shareware program called FollowMe, its trial version can be downloaded from tarsoft’s site or shareware servers (perhaps there are other programs like this which I did not come across, I am talking about the learning concept here). For me personally working with a computer and using a program like described above made a tremendous difference, I really feel that I am getting the most from this book. I can hear my mistakes and I feel that I am correcting them.

While with a course like this the price is much less important than the result and productivity of learning, this book (in my opinion) satisfies both, good quality and reasonable price. Recommended.

I will be starting a Spoken English Tutorial on how to reduce your accent.

English Speaking Tips

I learnt some days ago that there are softwares on how to Improve your English Speaking.

Just like the one on English Speaking Tips website.

The software is made by an MBA graduate , a Chinese immigrant. It has a lot of features, including videos of how a mouth moves and etc. A truly fascinating software. What is more amazing is that it offers a free trial, so people can try out the software before deciding.

Again, if you are looking for Spoken English Tutorial then wait one week before you get a new article.

Something very awesome is about to happen.

I have also been surfing Internet Forums a lot lately and there seem to be a lot of people really anxious about getting admitted to a US university. Yes, it is a pain indeed, when you send your documents and have to entirely depend on some another dude’s approval of you.

I personally don’t like it, although I already took the English exams like GRE and TOEFL. Actually, I’ve beat the English Speaking section on TOEFL for almost perfect score. 28/30, can you guys believe it? Yup!๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, my advice would you to not worry. It is all about the journey. You guys focus too much on results. It is all about the journey.

So what I advice you is that DO take the English exams like GRE and TOEFL and then apply to your dream university. Expect it to be hard, but if you really want to accomplish it – you will. God will help you๐Ÿ™‚.

Thanks๐Ÿ™‚.
