2. Listening


This is the one time you can feel less guilty about watching the TV and blasting your radio while trying to study. Listening is an important component that you’d need to master and many students fail to do well in the listening test. Watch TV without the subtitles so that you can learn to grasp what’s being said. If you can summarise the meaning and tell the gist of the story, then you know that you’re ready for the listening paper. Want more tips? Check out MUET listening test guide and tips here. 



3. Speaking


Many students find the speaking paper difficult. Although English is widely spoken in Malaysia, we’re all so used to Malaysian-English that not adding a ‘lah’ or a ‘loh’ in a sentence make it tricky to send the message across. To get yourself accustomed to speaking good, proper English, train yourself even when you’re having a normal conversation with friends and family. This will increase your confidence and ensure that you communicate smoothly. When you can do this without thinking too hard, you’ll have less things to worry about during the exam, even when you’re feeling a little nervous. Do you know that you are required to interact with three other students for this test? Don't worry we have MUET speaking test guide and tips for you!
