Believe me or not: Jun 20, 2002

One of my former students(a native Chinese girl) in China achieved a full mark(677) on the TOEFL test before I came to Canada.



TOEFL questions are as easy as the one you have asked here.

I got zero Jun 20, 2002

To tell you the truth, my English isn\'t the greatest having grown up in a remote farming community where on average only three sentences where (verbally) exchanged every day before moving as a teenager to a country of one billion where I talked for eight hours a day about things I knew absolutely nothing about and am only just starting to appreciate. Scores are for the birds. At least I hope them red craned herons are scoring in their migratory habitats. Anyhow, I was always against the TOEFL test in that, in my mind anyway, it summons up the ideas of a dirty loofah (something to do with toes) and smacked of force-fed apple pie. IELTS seems to be rivalling its elder sibling in Mainland China. Actually, Chinese love these things but it of course it matters little outside of academia. What people want to know is whether you have a blind clue about what they have said (and if not, nodding and smiling works, belive me) I once knew a chap that spoke no English at all but managed to fool a group of around 20 people(university faculty) over a period of 2 years by just repeating affirmative phrases whenever questioned. The end result was he was sacked but not for linguistic ineptitude but for sleeping with the daughter of th HOD. Before anyone attacks me saying that TOEFL is a test of a foreign language, please check to see what my native language actually is (this infomation will be available via Henry\'s native speaker accrediatation system!!!)

If bare of emotions I\'d rather suspend any judgement on the point as a bit beyond my reach yet. Thank You BBW,linguist and David Rockell.

What about the Cambridge CPE (certificate of proficiency in English)? Is it worthy sitting for a beginning linguist\'s self- and external esteem.

CPE? Jun 21, 2002

I used to drink a large POT of strong green tea before venturing to suggest a humble answer to one of those seemingly illusive questions. Yes, indeed, British prescriptive grammarians are highly respectable even if they don\'t have any KudoZ points.

My experience Jun 22, 2002

7 years ago (when I was young and innocent ), I got 620. However, I fell asleep during the listening part. The reason I took TOEFL is that I was planning to study in the States. But then I sat in IELT and got a very good mark. I ended up going to London for my postgrad course. I never thought of using my TOEFL achievement (if you can call it that) as a proof of my English proficiency because it\'s too long ago.

Hi, Miss Yen.

You took a nap and then got 620 right out of the other two parts of the test? incroyable!

您好,Laurie! Jun 23, 2002

Laurie,您好! 趁着您還在網上漫游﹐趕緊向您請教兩個問題﹕1)倫敦作為一個老城﹐為何至今看上去仍然煥然一新? 倫敦人口音那麼重﹐你是怎樣排除萬難拿碩士學位的? 2)我昨天斗膽回答了一個中文問題﹐好象是跟台灣的“A 錢”有關﹐我想, 作為繁體漢語高手﹐你對這個問題應該最有發言權了﹐這個“A”跟英語有無聯係﹖謝謝。

Betty
