Our English Basics “test” is not actually a real standardized test. Union Test Prep created English Basics as a learning resource with several purposes. Perhaps you are preparing for a standardized test that contains reading and/or writing sections. Going through our English Basics study guides, practice questions, and flashcards will help you gain a stronger background in oral and written language so that your scores may be higher. It may also provide extra support and practice for the reading and English portions of our other test prep materials that you find difficult.
You may not be preparing for any test at all, but perhaps an employer or instructor has required or suggested improvement in spoken and/or written English as part of your job evaluation or coursework. Using all three parts (study guides, practice questions, and flashcards) of English Basics should easily satisfy that requirement. You can set aside regular practice times and improve many aspects of your communication skills.
Finally, maybe you are neither preparing for a test nor needing recommended English improvement. You may just have the feeling that you don’t know enough about how English should be spoken and written. Most friends will not point out your mistakes, but someone may have made a crack about your grammar, at some point. Why not see how much you do know and find out ways to improve?
There are all sorts of reasons for poor English usage and most of them have nothing to do with intelligence. Perhaps your English instruction in school was not sequential and there were gaps left, due to changing schools or ineffective instruction during particular years. Prior personal experiences also shape the way we do things, and perhaps correctly speaking the language was not a priority during your formative years. Maybe it’s hard to know what “sounds right” because you are not accustomed to hearing “good English.” English Basics can help you there, too. After all, you can’t do something “right” if you don’t know the correct way. You can use English Basics as a fun, self-improvement project.
