Simulado de Inglês Avançado / Advanced English Simulation

No nível avançado, a pessoa é capaz de compreender um vasto número de textos longos em Inglês, reconhecendo os seus significados implícitos, alem de conseguir se expressar de forma fluente e espontânea sem precisar procurar muito as palavras. Para você se aprofundar ainda mais no idioma, preparamos esse simulado.

Questão 1

"I have as much muscle as any man, and can do as much work as any man."

If you were to report what Sojourner said instead of direct quoting her, you would say that:

Questão 2

“May I say a few words?”

We may keep the sentence grammatically correct by substituting “words” for:

Questão 3

"Well, if a woman upset the world, do give her a chance to set it right side up again."

The use of “well” in the beginning of the sentence is a very common feature of cohesion in spoken discourse and is usually used for:

I softening and correcting.
II gaining time.
III referring to your own expectations.
IV indicating you don’t need any help.

The only correct ways to finish the assertion are:

Questão 4

"I have plowed and reaped and husked and chopped and mowed, and can any man do more than that?"

When Sojourner chooses to use “can” in “and can any man do more than that?”, she does it because:

Questão 5

"I have plowed and reaped and husked and chopped and mowed, and can any man do more than that?"

We may say that the verbs Sojourner uses are:

Questão 6

On the other hand, one may wonder what role English for Specific Purposes (ESP) plays in Brazil? The answer is: ESP has also its place in the Brazilian educational c ontext. It is now a well-established area field of language teaching and learning in the country. As already attested elsewhere (Ramos, 2005) ESP is a part of innumerable new textbooks that were put on the market in the last 10 years. It is part of the content indicated for the tertiary level entrance exams (maned Vestibular) in the country. It is the name of many courses that are offered in Brazilian universities. (RAMOS, R. C. G. ESP in Brazil: history, new trends and challenges. In: KRZANOWSKI, M. (Ed.). ESP and EAP in Developing and in Least Developing Countries. IATEFL, 2008. p. 68-83.)

Which of the following are characteristics of English for Specific Purposes?

1. Meets specific needs of learners.
2. Makes use of underlying methodology and activities of the discipline it serves.
3. Is centered on the language appropriate to these activities in terms of grammar, lexis, syntax, study skills, discourse and genre.
4. Is designed for business purposes only.
5. Follows a specific methodology.

Questão 7

In practical terms, focusing on a grammar topic may be a challenge for the teacher and the student. Using the Passive Voice as mere example, LarsenFreeman (2003, p. 47) states that “the ultimate challenge of the passive voice is not form” because “although it is a grammatical form, it is not the form that presents the learning challenge”. In her example, focusing on form, teachers may mistakenly choose to introduce the passive as a transformed version of the active, implying they are interchangeable or that all passive sentences include the agent, which is definitely not the case. A good alternative to teaching through form could be to:

Questão 8

One of the most commonly mispronounced sounds in American English is the “th” sound. This is likely do to the fact that the “th” phonemes are rare sounds, not found in most European and Asian languages. When we do not have a sound in our own language, the natural tendency to substitute a similar sound, such as “z,” “d” or “t.” Unfortunately, this has a big impact on accent, because the “th” sound is found in 20% of the 25 words we say the most in English. The most commonly used word, “the,” begins with this sound. So, when we mispronounce “th,” it is very noticeable in everyday speech.


Choose the words in which the ‘th’ sound is voiced

Questão 9

“May I say a few words?”

We may keep the sentence grammatically correct by substituting “May” for:

Questão 10

The Screen Actors Guild Awards were a couple of nights ago—they’re more commonly called the SAG Awards—and they had a doozy of an error on Judi Dench’s name card. She was nominated for an award called Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for her work in the movie “Victoria & Abdul,” but instead of spelling it R-O-L-E for “role,” they spelled it R-O-L-L, like the bread.

Choose the answer that justify the spelling mistake:
