Thẩm Tâm Vy, December 24th, 2018 CORRECT USE OF ENGLISH VOCABULARY UNIT CORRECT USE OF ENGLISH VOCABULARY STUDY EXAM A. Before an exam, some students cram for it. Even if you’re genius 2, you’ll have to do some revision. If the exam happens every year, you can revise by looking at past papers 3. Some things can be memorised or learnt (off) by heart. But rote-learning is not suff icient for most subjects. It is also possible to use mnemonics 5. However, all things considered, the best idea is to bury yourself in your books and to study intensively until you know the subject inside out 8. 1. study in very concentrated way for short time 2. an exceptionally clever person 3. exam papers from previous years 4. learning purely by repetition 5. /niˈmɒnɪks/ tricks that help you remember something, for example: ‘i’ before ‘e’ except after ‘c’ is mnemonic for English spelling (e.g. friend, but receive) spend the maximum time studying 7. in very focused way 8. know it completel B. Academic writing composition could be just 50–100 words, of en used for school work essay longer than composition, more serious, hundreds or thousands of words assignment long essay, of en part of course, usually thousands of words project like an assignment, but emphasis on student’s own material and topic portfolio collection of individual pieces of work; may include drawings and other examples of creative work as well as writing dissertation long, research-based work, perhaps 10–15,000 words, for degree or diploma thesis very long, original, research-based work, perhaps 80–100,000 words, for higher degree (e.g. PhD) It’s good idea to start with mind map when preparing an essay. Always write first draft before writing up the final version. Your essay should be all your own work; plagiarism is very serious off ence in colleges and universities. It is an increasing problem because it is so easy to cut and paste from materials available on the internet, and students have to sign plagiarism form to say that the work they are handing in is all their own and that they acknowledge any sources they have used. There is usually deadline 5. Af er the essay is submitted 6, it will be assessed and usually you can get feedback 8. 1. diagram that lays out ideas for topic and how they are connected to one another 2. first, rough version 3. /’pleIÙərIzəm/ using other people’s work as if it was yours 4. give details of 5. date by which you must hand in the work 6. handed in; formal 7. evaluated and given grade 8. comments from the teacher/tutor C. Aspects of higher academic study less formal is do research magazines with academic articles (we do not use the word magazine to talk about this kind of academic publication) get hold of (it) on the internet system where libraries exchange books/journals with one another online materials that can be freely used by teachers and students anywhere leave the course before the end last exams before the end of college or university course with the right formal qualifications PRACTICE I. Correct the wrong usage of words to do with written work in these sentences. 1. His PhD assignment was 90,000 words long and was on the history of US place names. 2. Little Martha did her first dissertation in school today. It was called ‘My family’. 3. We have to hand in an essay at the end of the course. It can consist of up to five different pieces of work. 4. The teacher gave us the title of this week’s project today. We have to write 1,000 words on the topic of ‘If ruled the world’ and hand it in next Monday. 5. At the end of this course, you have to do 5,000-word thesis which will be assessed, and the grade will contribute to your final degree. 6. think I’ll do study of people’s personal banking habits for my MSc composition. It has to be about 12,000 words. 7. I’ve chosen to do the portfolio instead of the two exams, because like to do one single piece of work where can research something that interests me personally. II. Rewrite this text using words and phrases from above instead of the underlined words. When I’m studying in very focused way because I’m preparing hard for an exam, don’t see any point in looking up exam papers from previous years, nor is there any point in just learning things by memory. know some people develop very clever memory tricks to help them remember the material, but there’s no real substitute forThẩm Tâm Vy, December 24th, 2018 CORRECT USE OF ENGLISH VOCABULARY UNIT rereading and going over the term’s work.
