Tips  / Strategi Mengerjakan Soal Descriptive Text


  1. Ketika melihat soal bentuk teks descriptive atau teks lainnya, langsung menuju soal untuk di baca dan di pahami.
  2. Pahami jenis soal yang muncul.
  3. Perbanyak perbendaharaan kata (bisa dilakukan dengan banyak menterjemahkan teks)
  4. Tenang mengerjakannya (positive thinking dan yakin akan jawaban)





TIPS-1; Ketahui jenis-jenis pertanyaan 

  1. Menentukan tujuan komunikasi.
  2. Menentukan gambaran umum.
  3. Menentukan ide utama paragraf tertentu.

Jenis 1; Menentukan tujuan komunikasi. 

Bentuk soal
  • What is the purpose/function of the text?

Tips menjawabnya : Tujuan komunikatif atau fungsi descriptive text adalah menggambarkan (to describe . . .  Diikuti dengan sesuatu yang dideskripsikan dalam text), jadi jawabannya ada kata yang ada didalam kurung.

Contoh
When I just hang out in a mall one day, I saw a very beautiful bag. I love this bag at first sight.

This was the first time I've spent much money on a bag and I don't regret it. 

The bag is wonderful. It is made of thin but strong leather. The weight is light and the size keeps it from getting stuffed with junk. It has a long shoulder strap that I like because it keeps the bag hands-free. Its neutral color is fun and sporty. The design is simple and well-made. 

The bag is very functional. It is the perfect size to carry a cell phone, a pocket-sized wallet, a small book, a pack of gum, and pens. It also fits well into my laptop backpack for bike commuting to school. This bag also has more pockets inside so my small items don't all fall to the bottom. Overall I really satisfied with the bag.
