For the first time in my life, I have to proof my English sufficiency. I had to do French once but that was before I went to France. The test results made me believe that I was actually prepared for the experience of studying in another language. Reality turned out to be slightly different.
Having worked in English in the past four years, I expected taking the Toefl test would be rather easy. What I did not expect though was to be bored to death! While the texts vary between mildly interesting and challenging – bio-chemical vocabulary anybody? – the listening exercises seem to be from another universe the 1980’s. Now, while I do not ask to cancel Toefl tests for non natives across the board; I think that native English should have to suffer the something equally tedious.
Ca serait la moindre des choses.
