The science of thinking in English | Canguro English

Have you ever wondered how to think in English and stop translating in your head? In this class I answer two very simple questions: is it possible to 'think' in English, and is it a bad thing to translate in your head? Instead of using personal opinions and anecdotes I use science to show you the truth about 'thinking' in English and how to stop translating in your head.

IELTS Academic exam introduction | Canguro English
 
04:24
Welcome to the introduction to the IELTS Academic exam training series. In this series you will learn everything you need to know to get the best possible score in the exam. See you in class! ***** Official Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/canguroenglish/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/canguroenglish/ ***** Become a patron and sponsor free English education here: https://www.patreon.com/canguroenglish ***** EXAM OVERVIEW IELTS is the world’s most popular test for higher education and migration. Last year, over 2 million candidates took the IELTS test. Interestingly more than 80% of those candidates took the “Academic” version of the exam, so today we’re going to talk about the Academic version. But before we do, let’s take a little look at the structure of the IETLS exam. It’s divided into four sections; Listening (30 minutes) Reading (60 minutes) Writing (60 minutes) Speaking (11-14 minutes) What is most interesting about IELTS is that there is no pass or fail, but a score between 1 and 9. 1 means that you can say a few words, like “hello” and “goodbye” and 9 means that you are fluent. Now, let’s have a look at the exam results from last year (2013). The overall average for women was 6.0 and the overall average for men was 5.8, which is the “competent user” category, which means that you have general command of the language, but with some inappropriate words and misunderstandings. Now let’s look at the percentage of candidates who received a 9. Guess what percentage of people received a 9 in the exam in 2013. 0%. That’s right. Nobody. Now guess how many people got an 8.5. 1.6%. And how many people scored an 8? 5.2%. Now, the most interesting thing. Some people who take the exam use English as their first language, so they are native English speakers. Now guess how many of them scored a 9. 1%. That’s right, even native speakers have problems scoring a 9. Only 3% of people whose country of origin is England scored a 9! So you can see that getting a high score is very very difficult. Why am I telling you this? Because one important thing before you do any exam is that you understand your capabilities and that you are realistic about what results you expect. You cannot “hack” or “trick” this exam. There are no secrets or shortcuts. Either you are ready and well-prepared or you are not. If you are watching this video because you want to get a 6 but your level is 2, then stop this video and go and study some more. You are not ready! If you are well-prepared, then let's start!

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.

Here is a translation for non-Strine speakers: Without you, without you, I can hardly live without you, And I dream about your kisses night and day. If only we could be alone, Just you and me and on our own, And we'd dream about the moon up in the sky. Without you, without you, How am I gonna live without you? While you're only in my dreams I'm always cryin'. And as true as heaven above You must know I need your love 'Cause without you in my arms it's no use tryin'.
