After some easy review for about 2 months, I surprisingly enjoyed the toeic test taken yesterday, although the good mood soon disappeared after I watched the b-ball game on the world championship tournament between china and Greece at night.
I had once taken a toeic test 4 years ago, when I was studying in Belgium, at the time, I felt that it was so many questions that more than 20 of them were left unsolved when the time ended. But I still get a decent result about 700. As 4 years past, I took the same test again, for one reason, to prove my English capability, and for another, as an approach to keep myself studying English. As the last time’s impression, I dare not look down upon the test, so I forced myself to keep the speed when solving problems, it was about 10 minutes left when I had all of them solved, then I was feeling good at the moment, because I finished them all with the accuracy under control. So I am optimistic on the result, it is going to be better than last time, 4 years ago. I wonder this result is due to the decline of difficulty of the test, or it is due to my own improvement, although I kept learning English for the past 4 years, I was living in a English spoken environment at 4years ago after all, that should had keep my reading and listening ability in a good status. So It is hard to determined.
As for the review, I spent about 2 months, with a relatively low intensity. I began with memorizing new words, I bought a dictionary that divide by topics at the price of about 20
, after each topic there were also some practices. I recited the new words for the first round, then try to write them out with only the Chinese explanation uncovered. This lasted for one month, with going over iterations. Then followed the second round. And the last time I only went over those difficult ones right before the test was about to take place. During these days, I had interesting time with my girl friend, we helped each other to recite stuffs, She tested my words while I tested her herbal prescription. I also bought a reading practice book at the second month after I started the review, but this seemed useless, those practices were so easy that I only took about 10 days to finished the book which I spent 20
on. any way, it kept my minds active. And later the fact proved that the new words reciting part helped a lot, many of those new words appeared during the test, that brought smiles on my face at the very moment.
So, it comes to me to wait for the result that will be confirmed 2 weeks later, hopefully I will get a score more than 800. while saying farewell to Toeic, I shall consider the next certification test, I am not going to make a move before the end of this year, as the day of seeking a job is approaching day by day, I am going to put most of my attention on the learning of software relevant knowledge, after the job hunt, I am going for the next certification!
