Seperti tahun-tahun sebelumnya bahwa Ujian Nasional Bahasa Inggris Terdiri dari: Listening, Reading, dan Language Focus/Tata Bahasa.
Materi listening diperkirakan masih 20 soal yang gampang-gampang susah. Dikatakan gampang bila mengerti apa yang dibicarakan, tetapi bisa susah untuk menentukan pilihan jawaban yang benar karena di dalam Listening sebenarnya ada 2 unsur; yaitu meaning( makna) dan tata bahasa. Anda harus ada balancing kemampuan antara meaning dan tatabahasa. Anda bisa mengerti apa maksud soal tapi justru dalam soal itu yang diujikan bukan dituntut maksudnya saja tapi unsur tata bahasa atau ungkapan apa yang digunakan. Untuk mengatasi hal tersebut perbanyaklah berlatih listening yang mengarah ke Achievement Academic, dan saya sudah membuat prediksi atau gambaran soal latihannya, memang agak sulit tingkatannya, dengan maksud; Lebih baik anda susah di waktu latihan daripada mendapat kesusahan di ujian sebenarnya. Kalau anda bisa benar 10 saja diprediksi ini, itu di UNas nanti anda akan salah maksimal 5 soal saja.
Mengerjakan Reading tidak sesulit Listening karena materi Reading secara fisik anda bisa melihatnya. Yang penting anda tahu bahwa soal Reading sebenarnya hanya ada 5 jenis pertanyaan, yaitu ; 1. Menanyakan Main Idea, 2. Menanyakan Jenis Reading, 3. Menanyakan untuk menentukan mana yang benar/salah, 4. Menanyakan Refering, dan 5. Vocabulary. Ada cara/strategi khusus mengatasi ke lima jenis pertanyaan ini dan tidak mungkin saya jelaskan satu persatu. Tapi jika anda berminat silahkan kontak saya melalui email.
Kedengarannya agak aneh Tata bahasa; Dalam UNas Bahasa Inggris mencakup 2 pengertian; yaitu Ilmu tata bahasa itu sendiri atau Grammar dan Ungkapan. Singkatnya; bahwa grammar/structure yang pasti keluar adalah seputar penggunaan kaidah tata bahasa yang dimasukkan dalam unsur dialogue. Atau dalam dialogue tersebut anda diuji untuk bisa menentukan ungkapan apa yang digunakan. Daftar ungkapan dan grammar yang sering keluar di tiap UNas juga ada di Prediksi ini.
Soal – soal vocabulary atau kosa kata secara otomatis ada pada setiap Reading, selama ini Reading pada UNas Rata-rata 4 sampai 5 bacaan, berarti ada 5 soal vocabulary yang berhubungan dengan Reading teks. Soal lainnya bisa diluar Teks tersebut. Tetapi semua itu pasti masih dalam koridor di kurikulum anda. Intinya mengerjakan Vocab anda harus bisa membedakan; verb, adjective, adverb, noun, past, dan participle.
Jadi Jumlah soal adalah 20 untuk Listening, 5 untuk vocab yang berhubungan dengan reading teks, 4 soal x 5 jenis teks = 20 soal, 10 soal untuk Language Focus/Tata Bahasa dan 5 soal vocab lepas. Total 60 Soal.
Saya yakin anda pasti sukses untuk UNas B.Inggris karena sudah tahu gambarannya, anda tinggal bertanya pada diri sendiri di bagian mana anda lemah? silahkan ditutupi dari sekarang kelemahan anda tersebut.
In early societies money was unknown and man relied on a simple system of exchange. Perhaps a good hunter had more animal skins than he could use. His neighbor, a good fisherman might have too many fish, but needed furs to protect his children from the cold. Both soon realized that to solve their problems they could exchange their surplus.
