6 Requirement 8 and 9 In

6 Requirement 8 and 9 In task 2 can find requirement 8, knowledge of country & society and 9, implementing all skills. These two requirements may seem a little vague. But they are quite simple. Your understanding of English (written or spoken) will be better if you know the context of the countries and societies they come from. For example, if you have a text about health care in the USA in your exam, you already know a few things about this as chapter 3 covers this topic. Therefore, you will probably read the text more easily and up your chances of answering the question correctly. Same goes for implementing all skills. This requirement is mainly about being able to put together everything you have learned so far and use it. Think of it as a toolbox. You have gathered reading strategies, knowledge of English speaking countries, society and its issues; when you are at the exam you have to use all that in an efficient and effective way. 7 Tools for the exam For your English exam you can have a few things to help you. For all of your exams you can use writing materials (lined paper, pen) and a dictionary Dutch-Dutch. For English you are allowed to use several dictionaries: a dictionary English – Dutch and Dutch – English.

For example: if your native tongue is Berber and you do not have access to a Berber- English dictionary you can also use an Arabic-English dictionary. A digital dictionary is not allowed. If you really want to you can apply for an English-English dictionary at school. The school authorities will have to give special permission if you would want this, so make sure you apply in time.
