How The International ESOL Exam Changed My Life

This year I have done a lot of exciting things for the first time. In winter I took my ESOL exam, and in summer I went to the United States of America, had tons of fun, and met a great number of extraordinary people. I was lucky to spend three months in Ogunquit, Maine; a beautiful place by the sea, famous for its marvelous scenery, amazing playhouse, and numerous small art galleries and museums. Sometimes, sitting on the bench in the Marginal Way, a picturesque path along the rocks, and listening to the murmur of the ocean, I remembered how I took my first international exam which made the trip possible and opened the whole new world of the English language for me.

It was a cold early morning at the end of November when I got up and realized that day was probably one of the most important ones in my life, it was the day when I was to prove to myself, my friends, relatives, and teachers that I hadn’t spent all those years studying English in vain. Of course, I took great pains to get ready for the examination, but it proved to be a test of not only my language skills, but also of my patience, will power, and ability to keep my emotions under control. Being the only student who decided to take the C2 Level, I had to wish good luck to my friends and go with the examiners to the room where I was to take my chance. Feeling nervous, I had some difficulties with filling in my papers, but when the listening part began, I managed to pull myself together and answer all the questions. During the exam, I realized how true the saying “Time flies” was. Fortunately, I had finished writing my composition before the examiner told me that I would have ten more minutes to check my work.

Having handed in the papers, I went out to discuss my complicated impressions about the test with other students. Frankly speaking, I was relieved that everything was over and I did my best, but on the other hand, I was very grateful to all those people who took great pains to organize this amazing exam and to make taking it as easy and pleasant as possible. I must say special thanks to my wonderful examiners whose professionalism, kind words, and support helped me pull myself together and concentrate on writing the essays. Three months later I got the City and Guilds Level 3 Certificate in ESOL International (reading, writing, and listening) that I put on display together with my school certificates and golden medal in my room.

To tell the truth, the ESOL exam played a significant role in my life. It gave me a perfect opportunity not only to prove that I hadn’t studied English in vain, but also tofind a well-paid summer job in America. Getting ready for it, I brushed up a lot of things and improved my knowledge of English; I learnt a lot about Great Britain, its culture, politics, and economy. Moreover, I clearly realized what I wanted to do in the future and how I could become a skilful teacher. The ESOL exam made me stronger, more sociable and confident in myself. That’s why the process of taking it is one of the most precious and unforgettable experiences for me along with the amazing work in Maine, the exciting excursion to the top of the Empire State Building, the glorious boat trip to the Statue of Liberty, and memorable visit to Washington, D.C.
