12. 得点別のコメント&学習アドバイス

96-100点

英語講師・教師レベル! センター英語2Aの勉強は全く不要。後は志望校の問題を見て、文法があまり出ないようだったあら、他の勉強に力をいれよう。

90-95点

ここまでできたら英語は得意なはず。2Aで9問できていれば十分。満点を取ろうなんて余計なこと思わなくてよいよ。(たかだか2点だし)

80-90点

十分。Good enough. ただ気になるようだったら英文法の問題集をもう一度やっても良いかも。(既に一周はしてるはず)

60-79点

まず間違えたところや解説を見ながら丁寧にチェック。解説を読めば分かる場合が多いんじゃないかな?

センター英語全体で120点いかないなら文法よりも先にシステム英単語をやろう。

www.center-tokutoku.com 単語力で解ける2Aの問題もたくさんあるよ。

 センター英語全体で安定して120点以上だけど150点未満なら、文法よりも他の設問(第3問以降の長文)対策をした方が得かも。ある程度できるようになって最後に余力があったら文法やるのもあり。(文法は配点低いからね)

40-60点

 この層が数としては1番多いのかな?原因も1番人によって全然違いそう。せっかく100問解いたんだから自分で分析してみない?

 自分なりの弱点を見つけて、そこからやるのが良いと思うよ。学校や塾の先生にアドバイスをもらってもいいね。

39点以下

 英語苦手だよね。文法が気になるなら問題集もいいけど、Evergreen (Forestの新しい本)などの英文法の基本から説明した本をじっくり読んだ方が良いね。


総合英語Evergreen

 この記事を読んでいるのがいつであっても焦っちゃダメ。基礎力をつけなきゃ英語力なんて付かないんだから、今日からやれば良いだけ。思い立ったが吉日!

 読み込むにはちょっと時間がかかるけど、急がば回れだよ。

 具体的な質問があったらコメント欄からお気軽にどうぞ。
