Effectively Build Up Your
English language skills are not built overnight but come with years of interest and
practice. That said everyone is not inclined to learn languages equally. OPUS
works with you to support your efforts to pick up English skills as you aspire to
clear the entrance to these professional courses. Vocabulary areas largely include
questions like filling in the appropriate word or close test, spelling checks,
synonyms, antonyms, foreign language words and analogies. There are a few
time-tested ways of building English language vocabulary skills, which any one
can follow easily.
The stepping stone to building English language skills ahead of the
competitive examinations is reading. If you are not someone who is
naturally inclined to reading, start with reading newspapers every day.
read the newspaper’s editorial page for sure. The editorial pages provide
opinion pieces and are usually written in impeccable English, thus helping
you with sharpening your vocabulary. Reading these pieces will help you
get a broader perspective while improving your language skills. Devote a
focused 30 to 45 minutes every day to reading. Include books, journals,
and periodicals as well to your daily reading list. More importantly, read
what you like. That will ensure your vocabulary naturally stays with you
because whatever you learn with interest will be yours for keeping.
While it is important to improve
reading skills to pick up vocabulary,
work on understanding the passages
and context of the sentences. Pay a
keen attention to grammar. While
Wren and Martin grammar books are
considered to be Bible by many, you
can also combine it with solving
previous years’ question papers.
For the competitive exams, especially
for CLAT, the English section is usually
• Reading comprehensions
• Cloze test
• Sentence rearrangement
• Fill in the blanks
• Error spotting
• Phrase replacement
• Passage summary
• Spellings test
• Foreign language words
• English vocabulary for questions on
synonyms, antonyms, idioms, etc.
