Bank of exam questions for dialogue completion and situation response practice

From the desk of Demet Hoca. (Benim eskiden öğretim ortağı çok teşekkür ederim. ;) )

To follow up on the comic strip creation site workshop, and coming up with suitable dialogues and situations, I'd like to share the link to the OSYM website where you can download three types of exams which include English tests consisting of questions about dialogues and situations: http://www.osym.gov.tr/belge/1-12673/gecmis-yillara-ait-sinav-soru-ve-cevaplari.html
  1. The first exam type is "Öğrenci Seçme ve Yerleştirme Sınavı (ÖSYS)". 
  2. The second type is "Kamu Personeli Yabancı Dil Bilgisi Seviye Tespit Sınavı ( KPDS )". 
  3. The last type is "Üniversitelerarası Kurul Yabancı Dil Sınavı ( ÜDS )". 
The first type is the easiest; however, the others are worth looking at as they may also include some questions relevant to our students as they approach the proficiency level. 
  • The exams are arranged according to the years in a descending order. so the ones at the top have the most current questions. 
  • Although some of them may sound meaningless, the majority is good, and we can make use of them as they are prepared by a committee and most probably piloted.
When you click on each exam, you will see a list of the exam components. Look for "İngilizce Testi" and/or "İngilizce Testi Cevap Anahtarı". When you click on it and you will download a PDF and find the questions (and in the case of the second type, the answer key.)

If you do make comics based on dialogue completion or response to a situation, please share your images by uploading them to our blog and TAG them with 'EPE DIALOGUE' or 'EPE SITUATION'.  Thanks!
