A cursory glance at GRE, GMAT, SAT, ACT, LSAT and exams that students need to surpass in their efforts to study abroad reveal that students who take up these exams need to figure out that the following are the expectations and requirements that they need to measure up to in their efforts to do well in these and similar exams, and in fact all exams that that are related to further studies and career related exams:

Expectations -

1. Good reading habits 

2. Ability to understand good quality language

3. A good, if not excellent, understanding of vocabulary

4. Ability to understand tone and tenor of passages

5. Ability to understand basic language structure and correctness or lack of correctness of presented text, particularly when the task involves figuring out errors or possible errors in language that need identification and correction

6. Ability to understand shifts, changes in direction, or parts of passages when a new sub-theme is taken up to support the main theme or explain the main idea

7. Information or data pertaining to the topic sentences of passages

Requirements - 

1. Understanding of simple language, structure, and elements of language

2. Understanding of how phrases and idioms play a role in descriptive language

3. The role of vocabulary

4. Contextual application of vocabulary

5. Understanding of how paragraphs are structured and how they are interconnected to form the whole passage

Regular reading habits, along with active learning while Reading and Learning, are crucial to do well in language tasks. Reading and Listening are Receptive Skills, and are key for building and enhancing Writing and Speaking Skills

Getting to the root

Anushka

One prominent trait that I have noticed in almost all students who are appearing for a competitive exam like CAT, CET, GMAT is the fear of fancy words i.e. Vocabulary.

One prominent trait that I have noticed in almost all students who are appearing for a competitive exam like CAT, CET, GMAT is the fear of fancy words i.e. Vocabulary.

MYTH: I need to memorise the meanings of as many words as possible.

TRUTH: Get to the ROOT!

The English Language, like most things, is not original. It has evolved over millions of years from the languages of all the tribes that settled in England and all the nations that England colonised. Thus, most English words can be grouped into families with one parent root. The word root usually lies in Greek or Latin. Knowing the meaning of the word root helps you guess the meanings of hundreds of thousands of English words. Cool, ain't it?

Come on, let me illustrate with a bunch of examples:

Latin Root Word: Cide

Meaning in Latin: cut/kill

Words in English and their meanings: 1) Homicide - murder ; 2) pesticide - chemical used to kill pests

Okay, let's make it a little tougher.

Latin Root Word: loqu

Meaning in Latin: speak

Words in English and their meanings: 1) Eloquent - speaking beautifully and forcefully ; 2) loquacious - very talkative ; elocution - art of public speaking

Alright, now check this English word out:

ORTHODONTIST

Let's break it up - ORTHO - DONT - IST

Greek Root Word: ortho

Meaning in Greek: straight

 

Greek Root Word: dont

Meaning in Greek: teeth

Greek Root Word: ist

Meaning in Greek: person who does a specified action

Thus, an orthodontist is a doctor who straightens teeth.

Unleash the magic of WORD ROOTS to nail any English Exam!!

With lots of luck from Anushka.
