Dictation is very important, because the quality of listening almost determines the scores of the last three parts.（Listening、Speaking、Writing）
Today, I deliberately simulated the TOEFL test and listened to the last lecture. Because of an unknown word "glacier", I could hardly understand the whole lecture, then the answers I chose were all wrong, and my mood broke down.
I memorized the word "glacier", but I couldn't respond after hearing it. I thought it was another word.
Because I was not in a good mood in the previous listening part, so I did not do the speaking test very well...
But I found a problem. The difficulty of making sentences on the spot is too great. One is nervous, and the other is that there is no material. I mean, where do you find your examples?
Therefore, it is really necessary to memorize sentences.
The template is no longer enough. The template can only provide an established framework. The key is to make sentences by yourself. Anyway, your speaking speed can't keep up with the exam at all.
