It’s interesting how many students who are prepping for a language exam really don’t know what the point of such an exam is. It isn’t about just passing or getting a good grade as it so often is in school. When you take a language assessment, it’s to show how well you can use the given language, so a university or business or government can decide if they should accept you or not. There’s a real reason or outcome for you.
That’s what these blogs are about. We take a look at language assessment; the real world potential of them, and how we often block ourselves mentally from succeeding on a language exam.
We have had some friends sit down and write blogs for you on how to succeed in essay writing for another language, and we have a blog on how polyglots typically approach language learning and assessment. Sure, there are individual preferences, but the general approach is remarkably similar for successful language learners. We even have a blog on ways to overcome those mental blocks. Learn to overcome negative thoughts and to think positively.
Changing the way you think about an exam is a major step in doing well on that exam, so read on.
