Scoring high come exam day requires more than linguistic and cultural competency. Students must also have a deep understanding of what to expect. Each Section and Part of this program opens with detailed strategies for test taking success.
The worktext provides explicit skill-building and test-taking strategies for each activity type on the exam.
Section I, Part A. Interpretive Communication: Print Texts. Part A contains authentic text selections, representing different genres, followed by a multiple-choice sequence for each selection, which mimics the Exam.
Section I, Part B. Interpretive Communication: Print and Audio Texts (combined). Section 1B will always have one print source and one audio source for each activity. The multiple-choice sequence for each selection combination mimics what students will encounter on the Exam.
Section I, Part C. Interpretive Communication: Audio Texts. A simplified version of Part B, this section contains a variety of audio selections, followed by multiple-choice sequence.
Section II, Part A. Interpersonal Writing: E-mail Reply. This section focuses on e-mail texts, all of which require the student to respond using the formal register. The readings address a variety of topics representing the themes and recommended contexts.
Section II, Part B. Presentational Writing: Argumentative Essay. In this section, students have to read an article, interpret a graph, and listen to an audio text. They then synthesize the information, take a position on a topic, and write an argumentative essay that addresses all three sources.
