To examine how extent my improvement in English is, I went to London, though this would be the last time, to take TOEFL exam.
I departed from campus a bit earlier than usual attendance to the lecture, then got London around 10am. My test will start around 12.30pm so I first headed to 'Fortnum & Mason', which is famous for the taste and flavour of tea. As I've written before, this tea is loved by many people, such as Royal family…
Well, the truth is….I was just wondered what can be good suvenior to the people I owe to. The tea would be nothing special, just standard one, but many would be glad. So decided to buy.
After looking around for a while I chose some to bring them back.
Well, there's some time to start testing, I killed my time in Starbucks…...then started around 12am.
After about 3 hours, I've got appoximate score of whole, I was a bit relieved that I've had some improvement in Listening sections. On the other hand, due to insufficient practice of grammar and writing, there's no apparent difference compared with the one I took before, say, one year ago.
Anyway, some people said there's a special way to get good score on TOEFL. Even good English speaker can't get good result.
Anyway, it's fine…..I just also wanted to leave something which can prove that I have lived in English emvironment, kept myself among English. Indeed, this is just a indicater to know where my English is, so that I can more focus on my weaknesses.
