Hi! My name is Toya Santa-Cruz. I’ve been an EOI teacher for 15 years and I created EOI Por Libre to help you succeed at your EOI Exam.
How would you like to feel in your EOI Speaking Test? I bet you’d like to feel confident, to speak fluently, and at the same time use nice structures that you know are going to raise your score in the test.
Would you like that? Of course you would, right?
Here I’m going to show you how to prepare for your exam by talking about what not to do!
WHAT IS IT THAT I SHOULDN’T DO IN MY MEDIATION TEST?
Look, this is really, really simple.
NUMBER ONE: DON’T GIVE YOUR OPINION
Unless it is explicitly specified in the instructions.
You’ll see that in most mediation tasks there is no request for your opinion. None.
But I said most, and not all, 100% on purpose, because if we look at certain mediation tasks, like the ones in Castilla y León, in the instructions candidates are asked explicitly to give their opinion about the mediation topic.
And I have great news for you if you are a little lost in mediation, or if you like to have reliable information first hand…
WE ARE PUBLISHING ONE PER TYPE OF MEDIATION IN EACH AUTONOMOUS COMMUNITY, so make sure you subscribe to the channel so you’ll be first to know when the mediation video for your community is released.
NUMBER TWO: DON’T TRANSLATE LITERALLY
EVER!!! If you have to do an INTERLINGUISTIC MEDIATION, that is, transmitting the information of a Spanish text or infographic, in English, to a person who can’t understand Spanish but who can understand English.
NUMBER THREE: DON’T USE THE EXACT WORDS YOU HAVE IN THE SOURCE TEXT
This will be penalized, so make sure you use the TOP STRATEGY in mediation.
And remember, PERFECT PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT…and to help you with it here I share you an exclusive mobile APP where you can find videos, audios with their scripts about the EOI exam topics, speaking plans, readings, listenings and writing exam tasks to prepare for your EOI Exam.
And I’m sure you’re gonna love it!!
You can download it TOTALLY FREE just by clicking the link and start using the free resources to prepare effectively, to save time and find guides, strategies and high-quality resources that can’t be found anywhere else.
Keep up with the hard work and see you soon!
