Dear Dr. Tanabe,
I took a STEP exam today. As a whole, the exam was not just tough but challenging for me.
The reading section, especially Part1, made me realize the importance of learning words and phrases more. Some of the questions were really hard to answer. I also thought writing skills were also essential to me. I had difficulty with choosing appropriate words and how to construct my paragraph logically.
As for the listening section, what I needed most was to practice more with that type of test. But I gave it my best shot to the section.
Taking the Eiken was so significant. This experience made me make up my mind to make further efforts to improve my English skills. (Six-dan)
