Testy_jak sie ucze i czy warto?

2_18/365 days (NP17)

Postanowiłam napisać kilka słów o tym jak wygląda u mnie nauka z zakupionych testów gramatyczno-leksykalnych(B1-B2) z wyd. Edgard. Jestem poza połówką przerobionej książki, więc czas na opinię.

Czy zakup okazał się warty wydanych pieniążków? – TAK i bardzo polecam!

WSTĘP
Mam tu 54 testy. Podzieliłam materiał na miesiąc czasu nauki, czyli średnio wychodzi po 2,5 testu na 1 dzień. Jeśli mamy wstępny podział już zrobiony – zaczynam od początku. Postanowiłam że w materiale testowym w kółko będę zaznaczać sobie rzeczy z którymi mam trudność, a przy każdym teście będę pisać adnotację czy test poszedł szybko, średnio czy był trudny.

  1. Każde zdanie z testu – jeśli nie rozumiesz dlaczego masz taką a nie inną poprawną odpowiedź – musisz zajrzeć do gramatyki. Nie ma innej opcji!
  2. Warto przepisać do zeszytu zdania w których zrobiło się błąd. Nawet najmniejszy.
  3. Jeśli czegoś w ogóle się nie uczyłam z języka angielskiego – u mnie np. phrasal verbs, kolokacje i word phrasens – koniecznie musisz nadrobić zaległości. Uwaga! Tu nie wymyślasz na siłę czym uzupełnić puste luki, bo skoro masz styczność z danym materiałem pierwszy raz to nie będziesz wiedzieć jak go uzupełnić poprawnie i błędnie nauczysz się materiału. Korzystam z odpowiedzi – które po wpisaniu powtarzam w miarę możliwości cały dzień. Tym samym mam po jednym dniu szukania w internecie praktycznie całą bazę frazali 🙂 w formie własnych fiszek. Idiomy niestety ciężej znaleźć i postanowiłam nie marnować czasu na szukanie a zakupić sobie fiszki.
  4. To co zrobiłam bez błędnie w testach – zapisuję również na kartce! Jestem z tego bardzo dumna.
  5. Gramatyka w zdaniach. Po uzupełnieniu i sprawdzeniu poprawności testu – muszę koniecznie przeczytać dany test ponownie! Dlaczego? otóż wtedy w miarę możliwości porównuje zdania, staram się zrobić ich analizę i wtedy zaczynam rozumieć czemu w danym zdaniu (luce) jest tak a nie inaczej.
  6. Niektóre testy zajmują mniej a niektóre więcej czasu. Prawda. Ale staram się nie robić więcej niż założyłam. W innym przypadku polegnę na powtórkach i się zniechęcę.
  7. Najtrudniejsze jest dobrnięcie do połowy książki – wtedy ma się ochotę zrobić do końca jak najwięcej i jak najszybciej. To kolejna nasza ukryta pułapka. Pamiętaj – nie PRZYSPIESZAJ NAUKI! Małymi krokami osiąga się więcej i na dłużej zostanie ci to w pamięci.
  8. Rób powtórki z tego co przerobiłaś/łeś.
  9. Pamiętaj o powtarzaniu nowych słówek z testów!
  10. Nie złość się jak większość uzupełniasz niepoprawnie. Masz do tego prawo. Postaraj się zapamiętać jak najwięcej poprawnych odpowiedzi. Ucz się na błędach. Nie staraj się zapamiętać tego, że „nic nie uzupełniłeś poprawnie” – staraj się zapamiętać dlaczego tak jest (sens zdania z poprawną odpowiedzią). 

CO DAŁO MI UZUPEŁNIENIE TESTÓW?
Przede wszystkim zrozumiałam w czym mam braki. A jeśli już to odkryłam, to trzeba zakupić materiały do ćwiczeń z materiałem który jest w kiepskiej formie i do dzieła, trzeba ćwiczyć. Myślałam że będzie to gramatyka (zmora upiorna wpajana przez większość osób) . Niestety okazało się że braki są gdzie indziej, czyli tam, gdzie ich się najmniej spodziewałam.

Testy sprawdzajace

Tym razem zrobiłam test z strony Getting English, do której link zamieszczam TUTAJ. Takich przykładowych testów językowych jest on-line dużo, zresztą oferuje je prawie każda szkoła językowa a zrobienie takiego testu nawet nie wymaga wychodzenia z domu. Ja dziś po długiej przerwie zrobiłam sobie właśnie jeden z takich testów.

test sprawdzajacy EN

Nie wiem na ile ten test jest wiarygodny i czy faktycznie potwierdza nasze umiejętności. Na pewno zawsze daje jakiś obraz.

Z testu wynika że mój poziom to
B1 (intermediate)

Ja nadal marzę o pełnym B2.
Do tego poziomu jest mi bardzo bardzo daleko.

Reading
English Matters magazine: ‚Poland in Numbers’

If you know my new English challenge it’s no to easy to implement. I think that I will think about it  as a new great challenge, it will be better, but it’s not working. I have more and more items on my brain and lately I have a little problem to focus on learning English. Every day I fight which myself and I’m hoping that I don’t give up! I don’t have more time to study, because I expecting baby and the whole devote time for preparing to be a mother. Reading English articles and books develop my vocabulary and learn me proper lexis. I’m trying to read always when I have time. Free time.

Today’s text was about foreign languages and numbers. It’s very sad when I read about our  grasp of languages. I need to write – Poland isn’t aces at a foregin languages. By and large, in Europe pupils are adged beetwen six and nine years old when begin learning a foregin language in state schools. In Poland – unfortunately the most of pupils doesn’t know any languages except their own. The English matters wrote that ‚the one obligatory foregin language is introduced as early as in the first grade of primary school, namely English, and the second – on secondary school. I would like to introduce of my opinion. I think that every think is depends where and what you to go nursery school, school and etc. I know some Polish institution where the second languages either English  or German is teaching for six years old. However the parents must to buy for the lesson by ourselves.
Of course many people in Poland declared how good knows the foreign language. But more of them only claim that they knows. The one things is certain – the Polen pupils wasn’t to learn foregin languages in primary or secondary school. I think that the only 15% pupils want to improve your foregin language skills. Therefore I don’t agree which English Matters survey.

Fountain pens

2_4/356 days (NP17)

Today’s day I have been spending on internet. I don’t know why I didn’t write about them. I’m sure that it will be a short story about my pen’s adventure. Let’s go to write…

When I was a little girl I went to school. Then – I needed to learn write. My parents gave me my first notebook ink and fountain pen. Of course it was a popular pen, but my parents told me that when you started learning to write do it propertly! If you factor in those days the foundation pens it not a cheaper. It was a 1987 years.

My first fountain pens was HERO. But I don’t remember what kind of model it was. The pen was very old and (unfortunately) was broken. I need to throw away and I’m very upset of them. It was a dark green and have a gold cap.

When I grow up I bought another pens, but it was a HERB 330. It wasn’t the same. The pen was more fragile. It was a cherry-red colour, and then I bought another one – black. I was about five pens brand HERB.
When I was adult I bought another new HERB 330 and I still have it. I think that I found a good copy. The pen does not crack or pouring. The most expensive pen what I have is SHEAFFER 9317. I bought it as award for my motivation to study English. Another one – Cerruti 1881 I gave from my boyfriend as a gadget. But this ink pen is too heavy  hard for me.

I haven’t written on my blog, because I was very busy yesterday. I you know, still I’m looking for a new job. I need to a great portfolio so fast. At least I found a solution of my problem. I create a new website on WordPress and I have my own portfolio. I would like to have my company, but I never have had enough money to can do it. My own site is very simple, but I need to create a modern project. Why? Because my old projects aren’t modern and the employer is looking at a new technology and style. If you are a graphic designer you need to be up to date with thegraphics. Otherwise I need to make few leaflet, posters and digipack on my new website. And it take some times. And soon as possible I need to create a new business card for me. When I have married and changed my last name the previous business cards are out of date.
What else?
I’m waiting for my cake… I’m hoping that will be delicious! For 30 minutes I need to remove the apple cake from the oven.

Have a good day!

The thremendous problem of young people

THE THREMENDOUS PROBLEM OF YOUNG PEOPLE
I’m looking for a new job…

294/365 days to B2

Yesterday I have informed about my job contract and I received negative answer. My old contract was die out and I hopping that I still will work at this place. unfortunately the last day of my contract is 12. September and my boss have been telling me  about it the day od the day before  deadline contract. In Poland is normal when your boss told you the end of the day (read: the last hour of work). Nobody informed you and told you for one month earlier. I don’t understand this. It was my 8 job in my career and I have a fairly! I have been working since 2006 year. Still I heard – you have a great achievement, great personality skills and I can work the client very well… thus… I’m very expensive employee. I’m 35 years old and I would like to start family and have children. But HOW ? not working? How to have kids when ever I’m afraid of tomorrow and I do not know whether I will have for them to raise? Work refunded is governed by other laws. The end of the funding-new employee. And Yes you can for free hire employees without end.
I don’t know what can I do and thinking about working in my country, but is very hardly have  had a good work in today’s world. The one of good news is that I still have been learning English!  And I’m not going to give up!

In my opinion to SuperMemo UX

249/365 days to B2

I would like to share my opinion which you about SuperMemo UX. I have been writing on this topic since last year, but I didn’t remember where there posts are. I have learn English since 20 April 2016 on SM UX, but the first lesson I had bought in October 2015. It was SuperMemo no problem 2.
The application is very useful and I’m very happy to use them. Of course when I bought the extendetion version of the SM I had a problem. The synchronization was not working and I couldn’t study properly. Of course the problem was gone and I can enjoy of two calls between  PC to Android and Android PC. What kind of platform is it? Super Memo is a platform where you can teach a lot of words and phrases in very friend’s way. The main of method relay to many review simply phrases and words which you couldn’t remember. However I need to write on website forum and I have to use to help, because on my PC this synchronization didn’t works very well.

If does method is effective? I think that it is, but is only suggestion. You need to learn everyday. It is possible? Yes, because the SM not requires for you many hours to study. The most important is may to do it regularly!
