Exam Preview

Exam Preview

Instructor: Mr. Michael Krigline, MA   ♦   www.EFLsuccess.com

Are you coming up to one of my quizzes or tests? This preview page will show you what to expect.

Because all of the instructions for my tests and quizzes are in English (unlike Chinese exams, where the information is in Chinese), it is important that my students read and understand the format of the test before they arrive to take it. Every test/quiz may not have all of these types of questions, but there will be a nice variety. If you have questions, ask in a class BEFORE the test!

Here is my “Test Preview” for content courses, like “Business English,” “Movie Appreciation” or “Pop Culture.” [You can ignore the “question type” that asks about “context clues.” I won’t use that kind of question in the summer of 2014.]

Click “refresh” (刷新) in your browser to upload the most recent version of this page; I often change things before quiz/exam time. (I updated this “preview” July 20, 2014)
 

BUSINESS ENGLISH class: Here is a pdf file to help you study:

MOVIE APPRECIATION class: Your final exam will be just like the midterm quiz, but will cover all four movies instead of just two. Most of the questions on the quiz will ALSO be on the final exam. If you missed the quiz, it is up to you to borrow a classmate’s quiz so you know what to expect on the final exam.

ALL THREE SUMMER 2014 classes: As it says in your syllabus, the final exam is worth 75% of your grade.

Monthly English Corner & Weekly Quote

  • August English Corner

    This month we will look at two practical ways to improve your English. First, pick a video (i.e., movie) with a lot of action and call a friend who also wants to improve listening and speaking skills. Have one person face the TV and the other face away. Show a portion of the video but turn off the volume. The person facing the TV describes the scene to the person facing away. Then the person facing away describes what he heard. Finally, watch the video together with the sound to see how accurate you were. Than trade places, and do it again for other clips. Secondly, build up your vocabulary schema by making labels for the various objects, appliances, furniture, etc., around your home or apartment–each month, label many things you don’t know how to say in English. Every time you walk around your home you will see these labels and it will help to reinforce the vocabulary. It is also helpful to be able to associate the real object with the name in your memory. Visit again next month!  © Mark Peter, M.A. Used with permission.

    The world seldom notices who the teachers are, but civilization depends on what they do and what they say.
