Beginning English Conversation

Hablar inglés con confianza

¿Cómo puedes construir tu confianza?

Escucha: cuanto más inglés escuches, más fácil será copiar lo que escuchas.

Práctica: cuanto más hable, más cómodo se sentirá al hablar. Comience con cosas fáciles. Haz preguntas en una tienda. Pregunte dónde puede encontrar algo, incluso si ya lo sabe. Saluda al conductor del autobús. Solo abre la boca y habla cuando puedas.

Deja de preocuparte por cometer errores: todos cometemos errores. Tu mensaje es lo más importante. Si la otra persona lo comprende, no importa cuántos errores cometa.

Practicar y mejorar tus habilidades de inglés. Te dará el coraje y la confianza que necesitas cuando hablas inglés con otras personas.

Para hablar con confianza necesita conocimiento del vocabulario, la estructura de las oraciones, la pronunciación y finalmente la comprensión auditiva para comprender a la otra persona y poder responder. 

Beginning English Grammar

English grammar provides the practice with all important grammar principles. A brief explanation is given of the grammar rule. Then follows a series of simple exercises covering this rule. Oral drills provide supplements to the grammar exercises because it is important that the student obtain knowledge and practice into everyday speech.

Initially, the demand for test seats was higher than availability, and candidates had to wait for months. It is now possible to take the test within one to four weeks in most countries.[9] The four-hour test consists of four sections, each measuring one of the basic language skills (while some tasks require integrating multiple skills), and all tasks focus on language used in an academic, higher-education environment. Note-taking is allowed during the TOEFL iBT test. The test cannot be taken more than once every 12 days.[10]

  1. Reading
    The Reading section consists of questions on 3-4 passages, each approximately 700 words in length. The passages are on academic topics; they are the kind of material that might be found in an undergraduate university textbook. Passages require understanding of rhetorical functions such as cause-effect, compare-contrast and argumentation. Students answer questions about main ideas, details, inferences, essential information, sentence insertion, vocabulary, rhetorical purpose and overall ideas. New types of questions in the TOEFL iBT test require filling out tables or completing summaries. Prior knowledge of the subject under discussion is not necessary to come to the correct answer.
  2. Listening
    The Listening section consists of questions on 6-9 passages, each 3–5 minutes in length. These passages include two student conversations and four academic lectures or discussions. The conversations involve a student and either a professor or a campus service provider. The lectures are a self-contained portion of an academic lecture, which may involve student participation and does not assume specialized background knowledge in the subject area. Each conversation and lecture passage is heard only once. Test-takers may take notes while they listen and they may refer to their notes when they answer the questions. Each conversation is associated with five questions and each lecture with six. The questions are meant to measure the ability to understand main ideas, important details, implications, relationships between ideas, organization of information, speaker purpose and speaker attitude.
  3. Speaking
    The Speaking section consists of six tasks: two independent and four integrated. In the two independent tasks, test-takers answer opinion questions on familiar topics. They are evaluated on their ability to speak spontaneously and convey their ideas clearly and coherently. In two of the integrated tasks, test-takers read a short passage, listen to an academic course lecture or a conversation about campus life and answer a question by combining appropriate information from the text and the talk. In the two remaining integrated tasks, test-takers listen to an academic course lecture or a conversation about campus life and then respond to a question about what they heard. In the integrated tasks, test-takers are evaluated on their ability to appropriately synthesize and effectively convey information from the reading and listening material. Test-takers may take notes as they read and listen and may use their notes to help prepare their responses. Test-takers are given a short preparation time before they have to begin speaking. The responses are digitally recorded, sent to ETS's Online Scoring Network (OSN), and evaluated by three to six raters.
  4. Writing
    The Writing section measures a test taker's ability to write in an academic setting and consists of two tasks: one integrated and one independent. In the integrated task, test-takers read a passage on an academic topic and then listen to a speaker discuss it. The test-taker then writes a summary about the important points in the listening passage and explains how these relate to the key points of the reading passage. In the independent task, the test-taker must write an essay that states their opinion or choice, and then explain it, rather than simply listing personal preferences or choices. Responses are sent to the ETS OSN and evaluated by at least 3 different raters.[11]
