For students who speak English every day, the English test may appear to be a breeze.  But the truth is that English is one of the most difficult languages in the world.  With so many rules, exceptions, and phrases, it’s not surprising that this section of the test tends to trip up most students.

Before your next ACT test, take the time to prep for the English section.  Don’t skip over it because you think it will be easy!  Spend time reading books and newspapers and reviewing grammar, punctuation, and vocabulary.  Take a few practice tests.  You’ll be glad you did!
