Learning Every Thing In The Domain Of Language
Hello dear friends,
This post is going to answer the above mentioned question briefly...
As you know, in communication (orally and written) every thing depends on the meaning of messages; so, what in here I'm going to say is that it's important to decide which words or phrases are needed to be chosen and used in order to reach the intended meaning.
Ok! Now let's get back to our question...
When are we supposed to use "purpose" , "goal" , "target"?
-Ex: The purpose of the research is to try and find out more about the causes of the disease.
* in sports:
- Ex1:Black kicked the ball towards the goal.
-Ex2: Only one goal was scored in the entire match.
* an aim or purpose:
- Ex:Our goal is for the country to be fully independent within two years.
* in sports:
-Ex: I had four shots but I didn't even hit the target.
* an aim: a level or situation which you intend to achieve:
- Ex:The government's target of 3.5% annual growth seems easily attainable.
* as a verb:to direct advertising, criticism or a product at someone:
- Ex:The paper is targeted specifically at young people.
The idea of this post belongs to my dear friend Mohammad...

Probably you may have asked yourself such question [What is the difference between 'test', 'exam' and 'quiz'?]...
or you may have the experience of using these words interchangeably...!
but the fact is:
an Exam or Examination is
" a written, spoken or particular test of what you know or can do:
- Final exam/ mid-term exam;
- entrance exam;
- oral exam;
- biology exam;
a quiz is "
1- a short spoken or written test that is often taken without preparation:
. pop quiz [A short test given to students without prior warning];
2- a set of questions about a particular subject that people try to answer as a game or competition".
a test is "
1- a set of questions or problems that are designed to measure a person's knowledge, skills, or abilities:
. history test;
. driving test;
. IQ test.
2- a careful study of a part of the body or of a substance taken from the body:
. pregnancy test".
Test vs. Exam
- 'Tests' are to check your knowledge on the subject;
- a 'test' sums up what you've just learned;
- a 'test' sounds shorter and less important
- an 'exam' summarizes everything you've learned that semester
"A test is usually on a certain topic while exams are focused on the entire semesters work. Also exams are, most of the time, worth a lot more in terms of contribution to the year's work as opposed to tests".

1. Writing is a Habit, Not an Obligation
Writing may be innate for some people, but anyone can actually write well through lots of practice. During your free time, unsheathe your pen and pick up your journal or notebook. Go to a conducive venue then let your pen fly. Remember, you are writing because of the fact that you love to write, not out of pressure.
Once you get accustomed to writing all three types, you can finally move to blogging. Knowing how to do the three writing styles will give you more options for presenting information, which is a plus in the world of blogging. The blog puts your work out in the open, so make sure that you edit your entries right after posting them.
