Question:

I am still struggling with the reading comprehension portion? How can I continue to practice outside of our sessions?

Answer:

Of course! Reading comprehension can be a really difficult section of the test. One great way to practice is finding short articles in English to read and when you're finished, try to summarize the article to a friend.

Subject: Writing

Question:

Sometimes I wonder how my writing sounds to someone else who is reading it. What can I do to see if my writing sounds like it does in my head?

Answer:

That's a very common worry! It can be hard to know how our writing will sound to a reader. A first great step is to try reading your paragraph out loud. Reading a few paragraphs out loud will give you a better feeling of your voice, but will also help you catch any places where you need more spacing, have too long of sentences etc.

Subject: English as a Second Language

Question:

I have difficulty knowing how to engage in small talk at the beginning of conversations. I feel like I understand the grammar and mechanics, but as I get more nervous it gets difficult to think about what to say when I am speaking in English. What are some things I can do or say to begin a conversation?

Answer:

That's a fantastic question! It can be really difficult to feel comfortable when beginning a conversation or presentation so it makes sense that you are worried. The first thing we can do is begin to think about our audience. Who are we speaking to? Is it a co-worker, a friend, a teacher, a neighbor? There are different ways we can open those conversations. Thinking about who we are communicating with is the first step to thinking about relevant topics we can use to comfortably begin a conversation. Once we reflect on our audience, then we can start thinking about open-ended topics that will give another person a prompt for response.
