【留學暨語言中心CLC】G8-G9暑假作業Duolingo Test 說明 G8-G9 Summer Break Homework Duolingo Test

親愛的家長您好:

許多家長希望提早替學生安排留學考試之規劃,為幫助學生接軌海外學習需求,盡早適應國際性的標準化考試,提高備考意識,留學暨語言中心也希望學生於暑假時利用時間提升語言能力及強化備考,新學期開始將開始要求110學年留學班八年級和九年級於暑假結束後繳交Duolingo Test 之測驗成績。

推動Duolingo Test 之用意:

  1. 美國大學申請之語言能力證明:Duolingo的優勢在於直接網路報名並且線上進行測驗,無需受到場地及時間的限制且越來越多海外大學接受或參考Duolingo Test 的成績。
  2. 提前準備:對於G8-G9的學生來說直接考托福或雅思的難度較大,我們建議從低年段先開始準備Duolingo Test ,加強字彙和文法,至高年級可開始準備托福雅思考試。
  3. 定期追蹤英語程度:每個學生現階段起點程度不同,按過往輔導經驗每個學生達到目標分數所需要的時間也因努力以及配合程度而有所差異,因此留學暨語言中心建議每個年段安排1-2次英語檢定考試,定期追蹤當前的英語程度。因此,之前有考過的同學,還是會建議去再去考試。以此安排的情況,英語檢定考試的費用是無可避免。Duolingo Test 的考試費用也是相對對剛入門國際英語檢定考試的學生是可負擔的。

Duolingo Test 線上說明(簡報:將說明什麼是Duolingo Test? 如何準備?以及考試注意事項,避免無法出分的情況。

目前暫時無目標分數之要求,但將於開學後公佈各班或各年級之平均成績,期望一年比一年進步。

報考費用、時間、地點

  1. 費用:USD$49,付款後30天內參加考試。
  2. 時間:約60分鐘,包含15分鐘的資料填寫和45分鐘的實際考試時間
  3. 地點:可以選擇任何安靜、有穩定無線網路的空間
  4. 成績:因疫情緣故,目前約5個工作天
  5. 效期:兩年

在家考試的嚴禁事項

Dear Students and parents, 

To help students prepare for language proficiency tests, the College Counseling Center encourages students to use their summer break wisely and enhance their language ability. We would ask Grade 8 and Grade 9 students to submit a Duolingo Test after returning to school. 

The purpose of promoting Duolingo Test:

1. Language Proficiency Test of U.S University Application: The advantage of Duolingo is online registration and testing without being restricted by space and time. Therefore, more and more overseas universities accept or refer to the results of the Duolingo Test.

2. Prepare it in advance: It is quite difficult for G8-G9 students to take the TOEFL or IELTS directly. We recommend that junior students start to prepare for the Duolingo Test, strengthen vocabulary and grammar, and prepare for the TOEFL IELTS test in the upper grades.

3. Regularly track English proficiency: each student has a different starting point at this stage. According to our previous counseling experience, the time required for each student to reach the target score also varies due to hard work and cooperation. Therefore, Counseling and Language Center recommends each segment arranges 1-2 English proficiency tests, and regularly tracks the current English proficiency. Although some students have taken the test before, CLC will still recommend taking the test again. With this arrangement, the cost of the English proficiency test is unavoidable. The cost of the Duolingo Test is relatively affordable for students who are just getting started with the International English Test.
