A New Online Resource to Address Student Difficulties with English Exit Exam

Published November 18, 2016  |  English (Language and Literature)

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

A new resource has been added to the Learning Centre of the CCDMD, which focuses on English-language improvement. This additional tool aims at preparing students for the English Exit Exam (EEE). It is practical and interactive, addressing notions that cause difficulty for students, which are Techniques and Devices. Considering the importance of the exam, a certain degree of preparation is required to ensure success. The Learning Centre of CCDMD offers several different resources, including a tool for Writing Thesis Statements, which was the subject of a Profweb article. Paulette Cake, Project Manager for the CCDMD, directed me to the CCDMD Learning Centre to learn more about the exam and the resources that are available.
