About This Course
In this study guide, you will view video lessons on English language sentence components, structures, and meaning to help you review before taking the Accuplacer ESL Sentence Meaning exam. Because the Sentence Meaning exam may be part of your college or high school placement process, making sure you get a refresher on topics you have already learned can mean the difference between getting stuck in a class that doesn't meet your education needs and getting into one that appropriately matches your abilities and extends your knowledge. This course is divided into sections which don't exactly match up with the sections of the exam, but are ordered thusly to have generally equal course amounts and focus especially on the most challenging sentence parts: nouns and verbs. The topics covered in this course include:
- Particles and phrasal verbs
- Idioms and prepositions
- Adverbs and adjectives
- Connective words
- Nouns and verbs
About the Exam
Accuplacer exams are administered by colleges and high schools as placement tests in core subjects. The Accuplacer ESL series includes ESL Reading Skills, ESL Sentence Meaning (the focus of this course), ESL Language Use, and ESL Listening. The ESL Sentence Meaning exam has 20 questions which measure a student's understanding of English sentences. The test responds to the test-taker and is not timed, so it is important that you take your time with each question to make sure you get it correct and progress to increasingly difficult questions for a higher score and placement into more advanced courses.
Preparing & Registering for the Accuplacer ESL Sentence Meaning Exam
By completing the lessons in this course, you will brush off all of the cobwebs around those English language courses you took so you can demonstrate your readiness for higher-level courses. Each lesson will present you with an interesting video filled with entertaining graphics you'll be sure to remember on test day. The lessons are taught by an experienced English teacher and certain to help you remember key topics, and perhaps teach you a few new tricks to help on test day. Every lesson is followed by a quiz to test your comprehension of the material covered. At the end of the chapter, take the test to see if you need to go back to certain lessons for review.
Registration for the exam is done through your college or high school and completed via computer. Talk to your education center to figure out where and when you need to take the exam, particularly if you plan to attend a school somewhere else and need to take the exam as part of the admissions process.
