General English provided by all the English test websites are easy to create but they are problematic for the English learner. This is a problem because you can't learn something new by learning general information about that thing. That's why in school, we didn't learn one general class for English, Biology, Science, Math, and History, all together, all and in one class. That would be a disaster! No, we had to learn each class separately; one class for English, another class for Math, another class for Biology, etc. Then all that knowledge combined, gives us a GOOD GENERAL KNOWLEDGE.
Our small team of English test researchers and English test writers is led by British writer, award winning author, and English professor, David Alalade. His books have received positive critical reviews from 'The US Review of Books', Barnes and Noble, and Amazon. Our vision was to create a specific English testing and learning tool:
An English testing website with one specific purpose: to hold the world's largest database of specific English test topics. So that English learners and students can practice with precision, and learn English quickly and accurately whilst preparing for their important English tests.
We began building practiceenglishtests.com, and after a week of researching, writing, analyzing testing data, we quickly realized the reason why all the big English testing sites offer only one standard general test. It's because creating hundreds of specific and relevant tests that teach you and test you at the same time is VERY HARD!
It was incredibly difficult to build an interactive test program that would teach you and test you at the same time. We spent nine months researching all the popular test topics, all the relevant test topics, and all the accurate test topics used by the largest testing organizations in the world; the TOEIC, LINGUASKILL, IELTS, TOEFL, and The CAMBRIDGE EXAMS.
We then compiled all this data together and created a new database of specific and relevant Practice English Tests for our users and members. We create tests that focus on Business Vocabulary, Specific Industry Vocabulary, Work and Services Vocabulary, Daily Life Vocabulary, Word Association, and Grammar Comprehension and Correction.
This Unique method helps our users to focus and improve on SPECIFIC AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT. Therefore our users can improve strategically, test their English levels, and actually see how much improvement they are making. We don't offer 'general tests' because general tests do not help English learners focus on specific areas. Actually, we believe the best way to improve your general knowledge is to have knowledge of many specific topics. All that knowledge combined, gives you a high level of 'general knowledge'. General tests are not precise, and therefore, not accurate.
Our journey has been a real challenge. A journey of discovery, creative thinking, and facing new and difficult obstacles.
