English Listening Practice Tests for UAN - SMA / SMK

These are English listening National Exam (UAN-Ujian AKhir Nasional) simulation softwares created by InVirCom (Indonesian Virtual Company). For years, I have been using these English listening software in my 3rd-year classes both in SMA and SMK in Probolinggo. The obvious result of using the English UAN listening exercise in my classes is increasing students' motivation in learning English. Compared to classical presentation which uses tape recorder, these English listening tests/exercises have never failed in catching the least-motivated students' attention in doing English listening tests/exercises.

I believe these resources can serve as a self-study material which help high-school students prepare themselves for the English National Examination (UAN). Although it is originally intended for SMA students, SMK students may also find it useful since the English Listening sections for both schools are basically similar. English teachers who teach 3rd-year students in SMA or SMK should include these interactive listening exercises in their teaching process in order to provide their students with a wide variety learning material. This will give students new learning experience which in turn will raise their motivation in learning English. It's not too early to prepare at this stage. The earlier we prepare our students, the better the result we get.
