READ AND SELECT THE RIGHT SENTENCE
LIRE ET SÉLECTIONNER LA BONNE PHRASE

ÉNONCÉ:

 

Cet exercice est une des 5 épreuves écrites de la partie reading du BULATS. Mais qui vous servira pour n'importe quel test de niveau même si vous ne la retrouvez pas telle quelle stricto sensu.
Car il vous faudra acquérir les mêmes réflexes et utiliser les mêmes connaissances pour les autres tests (TOEIC - TOEFL - IETLS etc.)!

 

ATTENTION: respectez bien les consignes ci-dessous et notamment jouez le jeu pour vous exercer en conditions réelles.

Vous avez une image avec un court texte à gauche. Ça peut être un schéma, une notification, un extrait d'email, un panneau, etc.
À droite vous avez 3 phrases, il faut sélectionner celle qui correspond LE MIEUX au texte à gauche.
Je vous recommande consacrer environ 3 à 5 minutes pour cet exercice.
Donc regardez l'heure ou utilisez la fonction chronomètre présente sur 99,5% des smartphones, tablettes!

 

CONSEILS: À mon humble avis, voici quelques conseils précieux :

  • Méfiez-vous du vocabulaire reprise dans les 3 phrases à côté du court texte.
    Car parfois les questions sont faites pour vous piéger... donc la clé ici, autant que vos compétences linguistiques, c'est la... concentration.
    Comme pour tout test en fin de compte.
    .
  • Lisez LES 3 PHRASES puis le texte à gauche et ensuite faites votre choix.

 

Now, let's start and test your comprehension skills!
