Already a graduate student from Xi’an Jiaotong University, Huang Weiming, 24, a finance major, feels like he is preparing for another college entrance exam this summer vacation. 
24岁的黄伟明毕业于西安交通大学金融学专业,但这个暑假,他却像是在准备另一次高考。

Learning English vocabulary, attending lectures and doing endless tests has become a daily routine.
背单词、听讲座、做无尽的练习已经成了每天的必修课。

Huang is hoping to improve his English by taking a GRE training class.
黄伟明希望通过参加GRE培训班来提高他的英语能力。

Like Huang, for many, taking English training courses to pass the GRE, TOEFL and IELTS exams is the first step to fulfilling their dream of studying abroad. 
跟黄伟明一样,许多人选择参加培训课程来通过GRE、托福和雅思等考试,因为这是实现他们出国留学理想的第一步。

There were 43 TOEFL exam sessions in 2013, a new record, and the number of Chinese TOEFL exam takers reached 300,000, according to the New Oriental training institution.
根据新东方的数据,2013年全国举办托福考试43次,已打破历史记录,而参加考试的人数已突破30万。 

So demand for English training courses is increasing. 
所以,对英语培训课程的需求持续攀升。


But such courses focus on teaching participants test-taking skills. How effective they are in improving students’ grades still depends on their overall language level.

但这类课程主要给学员传授的是应试技巧,能多大程度提高成绩还是取决于学生的综合语言能力。

Therefore, the key for test-takers to pass the exams is to improve their comprehensive English ability.
因此,对应试者来说,通过考试的关键是提高他们的综合英语能力。

Even so, learning new test-taking skills can be helpful for some. 
即便如此,学习新的应试技巧对一些人来说还是有帮助的。

For example, time management used to be a challenge for Huang. But on the course he learned the golden rule that each gap-filling task should be finished within one minute in order to complete the test.
比如,对黄伟明来说,把握考试时间常常是一个难题。但在课上他学到一个黄金法则,即为了完成全部试题,每个填空不得超过1分钟。
