Yet another week has gone by! I was able to take the tests in a quiet setting this week. I may try to take it in a noisy setting next week just to challenge myself to work harder in a more realistic environment even if it’ll mean that my scores will drop dramatically.
Beginner Closed-Set Test Results
Week #8 Test: 73%
I got a 74% on last week’s test and have been consistently in the 70% range for the past few weeks. Time to push that range up to the 80% range when I’m doing this in a quiet setting.
Intermediate Closed-Set Test Results
Last week I took the intermediate test just for fun and got a 60%. I was bored this week so I decided to take it again, I got a 75% (how did I manage to do better on this than on the beginner test??).
Advanced Closed-Set Test Results
What can I say? I was bored and had some free time on my hands….might as well as be somewhat productive. Last week I got a 51% and this week I got a 56%.
I never did get around to finding out what the spoken sentences are on the intermediate and advanced tests. Basically, I have no clue what the sentences are or where/when I should start listening for a different word other than the fact that I know it’s the last word in the intermediate level and somewhere in the middle in the advanced level which means I can’t really follow along. It’s good practice though. There have been a few times when I actually somehow know the word being said without even looking at the list of 4 possible choices or having to think about it….of course….this only happens about once every 15 words but it’s fun when it happens.
