There are many circumstances in which foreign students should talk about their intentions regarding higher education. Most obviously, the target definitions attached to university admission applications are the most obvious, but the same is true of recruiters, IELTS speech assignments, and interviews with all oral interactions in the universities of the participants.
Unfortunately, many foreign students say the thing that is least "English". As a result, these inevitable statements often suggest that the command in English is weak. Despite all the English speakers who regularly hear foreign students, these statements have long accustomed to hearing them if they are wrong, the error has always been registered at some level, albeit unconsciously.
University students and IELTS examiners, use the appropriate language to speak your diploma and scientific phrases.
The following are the most common mistakes:
"I'm Mastering a Master's Degree."
"I'm Mastering a Master's Degree".
"I plan to learn a master's degree."
Do not do these unnecessary but common mistakes. All you have to do is not to make sure you understand what the right words are and what they mean.
– "Master's degree" is a noun. In writing, there is always an apostrophe, that is, a "master's degree", not a "master's degree" or a worse "master's degree".
– Master's degree is not a field of study. We do not learn mastery, we study a field in which we are looking for (or talk more, "get") a magnetic field. So, in English, we say, "We want to get the master degree in marketing."
– The degree is what we get as a result of learning and not what we are learning. So when we talk about learning, we usually say, "I want to study economics" [or some other field]. It's not wrong to say "I want to learn marketing," but "I plan marketing marketing" is more normal, idiomatic English.
– A certificate confirming that we have successfully completed a Master's Degree (not necessarily a Master's degree) diploma. You can say, "I plan to graduate in marketing," or when you graduate, "I have a degree in economics." But if so, you will notice that a native English speaker will not necessarily understand what degree he or she is getting.
– Verbs best suited to Master's degree are "", "Search" or "Continue". So you have to say, "I plan to study a master's degree in communication," or "I plan to master my degree in marketing," or "I plan to master a master's degree."
This may seem like a small question in the language. However, remedying the most common mistakes can lead to a university or IELTS examiner to think less about your English language skills or the worst case for your intelligence. So you can practice these simple, but important sentences, right.
Wrong: I'm mastering a master's degree.
Good: I'm mastering a master's degree.
Incorrect: I'm studying Master's Degree.
Good: I'm looking for a master's degree in marketing.
Wrong: I'm learning master's degree in economics
Good: I You plan to master a master's degree in economics.
