Facilitate - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!

“Facilitate” — (/fuh-SIH-lih-tay[t]/ – /fə(ʌ).ˈsɪ.lə(ɪ).te[t]/) — [Verb]…

To Make Easier — To Help — To Assist

“The creation of The GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! TOEFL Vocabulary Database was created to facilitate the test-taker in learning Vocabulary which is actually necessary — and will not waste the test-takers preparation time (like so many other ‘TOEFL Vocabulary‘ books available on-line).”

[su_dropcap style=”flat”]I[/su_dropcap]t is possible that the word “Facilitate” will be on the exam, or in one of the questions — but if it does appear in the exam, and is not one of the vocabulary questions — then it will be assumed that the test-taker will already know this word (and its transformations).

[su_dropcap style=”flat”]I[/su_dropcap]f, however — it DOES appear as one of the vocabulary questions, it will be presented in a way that one should be able to determine its meaning through the context in-which it is presented.  (But — since you are reading this post now — you will not have to worry, because you will already know all about this word, and its different transformations.) 😎

“Facilitator” — (/fuh-SIH-lih-tay-d’r/ – /fə(ʌ).ˈsɪ.lə(ɪ).te.ɾɚ/) — [Concrete Noun]…

A Helper — A Person Who Assists Others — Someone Who Presides Over Some Action

“Each TOEFL testing center will have a facilitator who is there to answer questions you may have about taking the exam — and can help you if you experience any technical difficulties.”

Facility - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!

“Facility” — (/fə-SIH-lə-dee/ – /fə.ˈsɪ.lə.ɾiː/) — [Abstract & Concrete Noun]…

The Ability To Do Something — The Tools To Do Something — The Place Where Something Is Done

Referring To The Place:

“The TOEFL iBT testing facility in your area can be found on the GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! – TOEFL Portal.”

Referring To Ability:

[su_dropcap style=”flat”]T[/su_dropcap]hough not as commonly used in this form — The word:  “facility” is an Abstract Noun referring to:
“the ability and ease of being able to do something”.

“Learning the TOEFL Vocabulary List on GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! gave me the facility to achieve Excellence on The TOEFL iBT Exam.”

Referring To Some “Tool”:

[su_dropcap style=”flat”]A[/su_dropcap]nother common usage — however — is in the Concrete Noun form, to refer to either the physical tools (computers / headphones / microphones / etc.) that one needs to do something, or the place in-which something is done.

“Each TOEFL testing center should be equipped with all of the necessary facilities to ensure that your testing-experience is worth the vast sum of money that you will have to pay for the exam.” — (here, referring to the tools needed)

“Because the TOEFL iBT Exam is so expensive – if you have more than one option for a place to take the exam — it is a good idea to visit the testing facility before you register there.  In this way, you can choose the best one.” — (here, referring to the place)

3.  “The Facilities

The Facilities - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!

The “Facilities” — (/fə-SIH-lə-deez/ – /fə.ˈsɪ.lə.ɾiːz/) — [Concrete Noun / Slang Term]… 

The Bathroom — WC — Toilet — Restroom — The “John” — The “Shitter” The Place Where One “*Does Their Business” 😀

“Since there is only a ten-minute break in the middle of the exam, there might not be enough time to use ‘the facilities if everyone is trying to go at the same time.  This is why it is very important that one ‘does their business’ before-hand.  Furthermore — for the same reason — it is not a good idea to drink a lot of water during the exam.”

*”Doing (One’s) Business” is a humorous colloquial idiom use to refer to what a person does IN “the facilities” 😀

[su_dropcap style=”flat”]B[/su_dropcap]esides being the plural version of the word “Facility” it is also very common (at least in American English) that this word is used as a more “formal” way of referring to…
