Melons™ L1 – The L1 Method – “Animal Testing”

Today we will look at another Melons™ Method. This is known as L1 Method.

We love Reading texts that have simple, familiar, medical terms. However, some reading texts, listening audios, speaking and writing use heavy, unfamiliar words.

Although we know most medical terms, there are many that are not yet clear to us. Besides, new terms are being “invented” each day with new pandemics and new treatment developments. Apart from these, some of the English words are also adding to this difficulty.

What is L1?

  • L1 stands for “Lexicon” (vocabulary, synonyms)
  • Unlike the other Melons, L1 takes at least 100 continuous hours to master.

We have 3 ways to improve your L1 skills:

  1. Start learning these words from now. Medical Vocabulary | Extra Reading
  2. Root Learning. Root Leaning.
  3. Guess the meaning from the context.

First, look at this question:

Safety is imperative before new medicines are given to patients—which is why drugs are tested on millions of animals worldwide each year to detect possible risks and side effects. But research shows computer simulations of the heart have the potential to improve drug development for patients and reduce the need for animal testing. Animal testing has, to date, been the most accurate and reliable strategy for checking new drugs, but it is expensive, time consuming and—for some—highly controversial. There is also the potential for some side effects to be missed due to the differences between animals and humans. Drug trials are particularly problematic for this reason and it’s clear that new testing methods are needed to enable the development of better and safer medicines.

1. According to this paragraph:

  1. Existing testing methods are fully reliable
  2. Existing testing methods are not reliable
  3. Existing testing methods are partially reliable

Before you proceed, how do you feel when the Reading / Listening tasks have so many tough words?

This is a crucial situation that everyone faces during the OET examination. These words are:

  1. New medical terms (10%)
  2. Semi medical words (25%)
  3. Non medical words (50%)
  4. Others (15%)
