UN TIPS SMA/HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL

Reading: @thegreatdika: untk soal wacana, jgn habiskan wakt bwt baca text ny. Fokus aj dulu ke soal. Baru cari jawbn ny d text. skimming aja

Listening: @aris29pratama: We must listen carefully because the speaker just speak twice times.so,focusing in the listening is recommended

Reading: @aris29pratama: Especially for longer text, we must read it first on the question before we move to skimming the text…

UN Comments SMA/HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL

@schordion:  It was quite difficult for the listening section.

Admin: Why so?

@schordion: it wasn’t actually difficult tho, but I just hate the way the speakers say it using English accent. Sometimes I don’t get it

Admin: You shouldn’t be hating the English accent. Usually listening is suiting the language’s accent. :)
