Quite a number of students have been asking about the new MUET format as well as the tips and advice on how to prepare for the exams. To be honest I cannot answer all of that in one email or two.
The best is to buy a book on MUET new format or attend a briefing or a workshop for it. You can refer here and here for the new format.
I am also considering, if the number is sizable, to organize a workshop. Let me know if you are interested by emailing me your name and your contact no.
The best is to have 8 to 12 students so we could have a good number for the Speaking Exam practice. I don't need a big class. Minimal number of students for this workshop to run is 8.
You could also suggest the best time to do this. Ideally it will be carried out in 4 classes, less than 2 hours each, depending on how much help you need. Fees will be minimal.
Mr M's MUET Workshop
Minimum no. of participant: 8
Maximum no. of participant: 16

This workshop will be carried out in four 2-hour sessions. Materials of the workshop will be provided to participants which contain all tips and tricks in answering all four newly-formatted papers: Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking. All participants will have a chance to not only grasp the theories but will also put what they have learned into practice in the workshop.
By the end of the workshop, students will . . .
Reading*: be aware of the new nature of reading questions and the best way to answer them
Writing*: be writing according to the MUET marking scheme
Listening*: be aware of the new nature of listening questions and the best way to answer them
