QW 010212 “My writing was rated so low!”

It was nice talking to you on New Years’ Day for the first time in, say, two years and the half, my dear brother? I have no idea of how hard the life in Deli, India can be, but I always care for you and your loved ones. I hope you’d like my recent favorite Seven-Eleven’s Shimi-Choco that I gave you. That kind of snack available at any convenience store in Japan is absolutely unavailable in India, isn’t it?

I know full well that it was unreasonable or even shocking for you to accept the fact that your writing on the B**** test had been rated as the second or third from “the bottom” whereas your speaking had been rated as the second “best”. It sounded even funny to me that the HR keeps asking you to take a writing class to achieve more than the score the company requires its employees to obtain, and you really hate doing it.

As an English teacher and learner, my reaction to your grumble is “Just get over with it ASAP”. It might be a waste of time for you to take a writing class simply to prepare for the test despite the fact that you have no problem in doing business with tough, vocal, and demanding clients and customers all over the world in written English. You kept saying that the test doesn’t measure anything and you deserved much more than what it rated your writing skills. Well, it could be true, but who knows?

Here’s what your dear sister has to say: any test has its own limitations, and doesn’t measure test-takers overall skills. If you can infer where the rating came from, like the way you wrote pieces of important information as bullet-points (I agree it’s a very common practice in real world) was negatively graded, you should adapt yourself to what the test stipulates as “good”, get over with it as quickly as possible, and forget about it. If your English proficiency is a real thing, isn’t it just a piece of cake for you, my dear brother? Your adorable, likable, and lovable sister believes you can nail it. Good luck.
