The TEAS English portion will test the student on their understanding of the conventions of standard English. Being a test that is meant to measure the students' academic skill level, it will not only test their knowledge of language and vocabulary as it pertains to the nursing field but also general conventions of the language as well. A mastery of the English language is an essential skill for anyone in the medical field. The TEAS English portion examines the students' ability to be able to communicate with patients and hospital staff clearly and effectively and as such, will also test the student’s knowledge of spelling, punctuation, and grammar. 

While the English and Language usage section makes up the smallest portion of the TEAS, roughly 16%, you will need to communicate your knowledge effectively in the following areas: 

  • The ability to identify correct spelling and punctuation, as well as their correct usage 

  • Sentence structure 

  • The ability to delineate informal vs. formal writing 

  • Understanding complex vocabulary through context clues 

  • The ability to develop and produce clear and concise paragraphs 

Our TEAS Test Prep Course

Our TEAS Test Prep course is designed to build an understanding of the concepts through thoroughly designed practice questions. Our high yield and challenging set of questions for the English portion of the TEAS are designed to provoke thought and reinforce the material you are learning. These questions are written and vetted by our highly trained staff of standardized exam experts. They are designed to not only test your knowledge of the subject matter but also to transform the way you think about these questions. The TEAS English portion will include questions that are purposely misleading to measure students test-taking skills. The Adkins Academy TEAS Test Prep Course will prepare students for this by including questions that are often more challenging than the ones you will encounter on the exam, to reinforce the material being discussed in the virtual classroom. 


Prepare for the TEAS English Portion in our Virtual Classroom

Our live TEAS Test Prep course will take place in the Adkins Academy Virtual Classroom. Here, you will be able to go over the material and these questions in detail with a professional instructor. Your professor will help you to develop strategies on how to approach difficult questions on the TEAS English Exam. These courses are not prerecorded, they are in real-time allowing you to review and ask questions with a live instructor among other classmates. This allows you the unique privilege of collaborative space in the comfort of your own home, or anywhere with a stable internet connection! Having a small group atmosphere allows you to ask and answer questions, see your instructor and their whiteboard, and listen to their instruction and class dialogue all in real-time as you prepare for the English portion of your TEAS exam.  

To supplement your studies, you will also have a subscription to the Adkins Academy question bank granting you access to a variety of questions written or vetted by Dr. Adkins himself.
