Your "Hook" if you have one: Not much</p>

<p>^ i knew the alphabet, so that helped a lot. And I took 3 hours of adult remedial english classes after school everyday, worked on english during summers, etc. </p>

<p>Most importantly, i challenged myself by taking honor/ib english classes after a year. Had I stayed in pathetic ESOL, I'd probably be reading at 5th-grade level by now. This is probably the main reason i learned english rapidly.</p>

<p>English is still my worst subject though (700 v, 720 writing, 4 ap lang) so i still have a lot of room for improvement.</p>

<p>yeah ESOL was pathetic, they keep making ppl stay though. Are u international? What country are you from?</p>

<p>"English is my worst subject though"
...um 700+ is like amazing for learning it for 3 years. Did you study alot for it?</p>

<p>^ now that's the tricky part...i had to waste the whole additional information part trying to explain that!</p>

<p>I was born in the US, but after a few months my parents (both iranians) moved to Iran. I was in Iran for the next 15 years and moved to US in 2001.</p>

<p>So, no i'm not international. I'm a US citizen.</p>

<p>And yes, I studied like hell for writing. Man i think i memorized the whole barron's book</p>

<p>wow though, worst subject is still WAYYY better than 99% of those whose first language IS english</p>

<p>thanks ranisparkle :) this is a neat thread. i haven't been on this board in a while. had to start another account cause i forgot my password and all that good stuff. go me.</p>

<p>omg the whole 3500 words?? omg I tried to do that since 9th grade...never was able to. Did that really help alot? lol</p>

<p>haha c is for cons, i was bored, and procrastinating calc hw.</p>

<p>leely, i was talkin about Barron's SAT II writing, not verbal.</p>

<p>i did try to memorize words (not barron's though) but it didn't help much. in fact the words i actually remembered in sat's were the ones i saw in books, internet, newspaper, etc.</p>

<p>SAT1+3SATII : 3800
