The HiSET® exam is a test (similar to GED) that you can take to show that you have the skills and knowledge equivalent to someone who has graduated high school in the United States.
The HiSET Math Test is 90 minutes long and includes 50 multiple-choice questions. The content of the HiSET Math test includes the following:
• Number Operations and Number Sense
• Measurement and Geometry
• Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability
• Algebraic concepts
Practice tests below cover each of those areas. When you take a test:
Always thoroughly read the directions so that you know exactly what to do.
Read each question carefully so that you fully understand what is asking.
Read all answers choices.
Narrow your answer options by eliminating some answers and work throughout to find the best answer. Only one answer is correct.

There are some good, regular dictionaries for English language learners – including the Learner’s Dictionary, which explains 100,000 words and phrases in simple language, with sentence examples, and pronunciation.
However, there are many times when some pictures will help you understand a word better, and more quickly. Perhaps the easiest way to see a word in pictures is with Google Images. Here are some examples of words that are easier to understand with a picture, or a set of pictures…
In addition to giving you information on formal classes and conversation groups in MetroWest, and suggestions for places to go, there have been 100 articles posted on this blog – Learning English in MetroWest. Each posting is intended to be a little lesson – about a way to help you improve your English. You can go back to review them in many ways including:
- Archives, by month (April, March, February, January, December, November, October, September)
- Categories – such as Beginner, Intermediate, Apps, Websites, Listening, Vocabulary, Local Information, and “Say This Not That“
We hope you have found these postings helpful. If you have any suggestions for what kind of information you want to see more of, let us know.
You can use Pinterest to see pictures and information about almost anything that interests you – such as chocolate desserts, or expensive cars, or origami.
You can also use Pinterest to help you learn English. Just search Pinterest for what you would like to study. Include “ESL” in your search for results that are better for people learning English as a second language. For example:
or this one: ESL prepositions
… or read to your grandkids, nieces, nephews, little cousins, dog, – or yourself.
Children’s books are shorter and easier to understand. They’re really good practice for someone learning English. Reading to a child can help you with:
- Vocabulary – learn new words
- Comprehension – better understanding when you read
And – you will learn faster when you use English for something you enjoy. (It’s really good for your child too!)
March 2nd was the birthday of the famous children’s author Theodor Geisel – “Dr. Seuss“.
Practicing English even just a little every day (15 minutes, 30 minutes, or more) will really help you improve.
The key is to practice English every day.
When you watch a video in English (TV show, movie, YouTube, etc), you can often choose to display the English words at the bottom of your screen – as they are being spoken. This is called closed captioning. Many times you will see “CC” to show where you need to turn it on.
This is different from subtitles which are also used to show the spoken words, but in your own native language. When you are beginning to learn English, using subtitles in your native language can be helpful. It lets you listen to the spoken English pronunciation while you read the translation. This can be especially good for learning English slang and idiom expressions.
But as your English improves, closed captioning – reading the English words while you listen to those words being spoken – can help you more, in many ways including:
- Better understanding and remembering of what you read (reading comprehension)
- Better understanding and remembering of what you hear (listening comprehension)
- Improved vocabulary
Many times, you can stop the video, to listen to something again – a great way to practice.
For example, one new TV show, called Planet Earth, is on the cable station BBC America. They talk slowly and clearly so you really have time to listen and read the closed captions.
A website with many, short, interesting videos is TED.com. For many of the videos, you can display the words in either your own language, or English. Here’s one of their most popular videos. It’s on body language, and how just changing the way you stand can give you more confidence…
