Soruları aşağıdaki parçaya göre cevaplayınız.

English is the science language in the world. Nearly all important scientific journals publish studies in English, but there is also research from different countries in various languages. Almost a third of new scientific reports are published in languages other than English. One can bear in mind that the international community can miss important science, and language prevents new findings reach practitioners in the field. If science is published only in one language, the transfer of knowledge across the world will be more difficult. Researchers ask scientific journals to publish basic summaries of a study’s findings in various languages, and universities to translate them in their own languages. We recognize the importance of a common language, and the contribution of English to science; however, the scientific community should not think that all valuable information is published in English.

18. According to the text, using one single  language for sciences  —-.

A) may prevent the spread of knowledge across the world

B) has made knowledge more accessible for everyone

C) has made it possible for people to understand science easily

D) has made English an international language for researchers

E) prevents most scientists from working in empirical studies

19. Most of the scientific studies  —-.

A) are published in a language other than English

B) should be translated into English for a scientific value

C) are not referred to because they are not in English

D) are available in English for scientists across the world

E) are not published in English due to lack of scientific interest

20. According to the scientists, —-.

A) some languages are significant if we want local perspectives to become widespread

B) science cannot develop up to a desired level as there is not a common language for it

C) English is not proper as a science language, so a common language is needed

D) many people can reach science since the only language used in science is English

E)  higher education institutions should translate studies into their native languages

  1. Selim,

    And once again the ‘examocracy’ inflicts another fatal wound to the effective assessment of EL skills – multiple choice and translation – don’t thunk I have ever had a conversation in which both parties used only single letters to communicate!

    When will we learn, acaba?


  2. Hi Tony hocam, thanks for your comment

    In the Question and Answer part of yokdil website it says,

    10) Dil yeterliliği konusunda yaptığınız bu girişimlerin devamı gelecek mi?
    Evet. Bu çalışmamızın devamında %100 yabancı dille eğitim yapan programlarımızdaki öğretim elemanları içinde yeni bir sınav planlıyoruz. Halen bu programlarda ders verebilmek için YDS sınavından 80 almak yeterli oluyor. Ancak YDS sınavı adayın sadece okuma odaklı açısından dil yeterliliğini değerlendirebiliyor. Halbuki yabancı dilde ders anlatacak akademisyenin dil yeterliliğinin konuşma ve dinlemede de olması gerekiyor. Bu kapsamda da çalışmamızı başlattık. Yakın zamanda kamuoyu ile paylaşacağız.
    Bu şekilde misyon ve kalite odaklı olarak çalışmalarımızı tüm alanlarda sürdürüyor ve Türk yükseköğretim sistemimizi küresel ölçekte daha nitelikli hale getiriyor olacağız.

    When I was at high school there were some rumours that YDS would be like TOEFL. I became a teacher but they still say we are working on that 🙂 . They know the problem, prepare a new exam but in the same format. Also it’s weird that YDS and TOEFL have equivalence table as if their assessments are similar ( http://www.osym.gov.tr/Eklenti/101,yabanci-dil-esdegerlikleri-250713pdf.pdf?0 ) . Besides, we do not accept IELTS anymore, since it’s not as good as YDS.
