World's smallest girl from India

A teenager from India who stands at a tiny 1ft 11in (58cm) tall is the smallest girl in the world.

Jyoti Amge, 14, is shorter than the average two-year-old child and only weighs 11lb (5kg).

She has a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia and won't grow any taller than her current height.

Due to her size, Jyoti has to have clothes and jewellery made for her. She sleeps in a tiny bed and uses special plates and cutlery to eat, as normal-sized utensils are too big.

Despite this, she goes to a regular school in Nagpur, central India, where she has her own small desk and chair, and her classmates treat her like any other student.
Jyoti also shares common interests with other teenagers, with a love for DVDs and fashionable dresses.

She said: 'I am proud of being small. I love all the attention I get. I'm not scared of being small and I don't regret it.

'I'm just the same as other people. I eat like you, dream like you. I don't feel any different.'

Jyoti is treated like a mini-celebrity in her home town, where people flock to meet her and some even treat her like a goddess.

She will even be releasing an album with her favourite Indian pop star, the bhangra/rap star Mika Singh.

Her mum, Ranjana Amge, 45, said: 'When Jyoti was born, she seemed quite normal. We came to know about her disorder when she was five.

'We consulted a specialist and he said she will be this size all of her life. Jyoti is small, yet cute, and we love her very much.'

Jyoti is ambitious and hopes to work as a Bollywood actress one day.

She said: 'I would love to work in a big city like Mumbai, act in films and travel to London and America.

'I'm proud of being small. I love all the attention I get because of it.'

Her dad, Kishanji Amge, 52, said: 'I can't separate myself from her even for a single day. I love her very much.

'She makes me proud. Lots of gurus come to see and bless her. They pray for her happiness and long life.'

How to Pass the TOEFL Test

The TOEFL iBT has four sections: reading, listening, speaking, and writing. If you follow simple tips and tricks to help you improve in each. Here are a few:

READING
The most difficult part about the reading section is being able to understand the main points. To do this, there are two important things you have to look for:

Topic sentences
If the reading has four or more paragraphs, then the main points are often found in the first sentence of each paragraph. This sentence is called the topic sentence, andit tells the reader what the paragraph is going to be about. It most cases, this topic sentence will contain the one main point or idea.

Transitional phrases
If the reading passage has only one or two big paragraphs, then you are usually be able to find the main points by looking for transitional phrases. Look for phrases like first, second, third, next, another thing is, finally, etc. These phrases often signal a main point or a key idea.

LISTENING
As for getting the main points from the listening, wellthis is much more difficult than reading, especially if the professor is speaking quickly. Even so, there are some strategies that may help:

Listen for a thesis statement
Many times (not always!) the professor will express a thesis statement near the beginning of the lecture. This sentence is one of the first few lines in the lecture, and it gives you information about the topic of the lecture.

Listen for transitional phrases
Listen for key words and phrases. This is similar to looking for transitional phrases transitional words in the reading-words like first, second, next, etc. These words often signal that the speaker will mention a main point or supporting idea.

Don't take too many notes
You should listen for main ideas, not details. Thus, don't write down everything you hear. If you begin writing down too many things, you won't be able to concentrate on the lecture and you will fall behind.

SPEAKING
This is the most difficult skill to improve. Here are some tips:

Speak with emotion
Stress, rhythm, and intonation are all very important qualities. Pretend that you are a Hollywood actor or actress, answering the questions as if you were auditioning for a new movie or TV program. This often makes your speech more natural-sounding.

Speak with phrases
Do not use individual words to make sentences-use phrases. If you translate individual words from your own language into English, yourspeakingwillsoundveryunnatural. Try to memorize common phrases that you can use in many situations.

Speak clearly
If you don't speak clearly, the assessor won't understand you. Even if you already speak English well, it is still important that your speaking is clear and easy to understand. You may have to slow down in order to speak clearly. However, this is always better than speaking quickly but

WRITING
Most important is essay organization. Your grammar and spelling may be perfect, but if your essay is not well-organized, it will not be very good. Here's how to organize your essays:

Independent Writing Essay
PARAGRAPH 1: Introduction (3 - 4 sentences)

PARAGRAPH 2: Topic sentence and supporting details

PARAGRAPH 3: Topic sentence and supporting details

PARAGRAPH 4: Topic sentence and supporting details

PARAGRAPH 5: Conclusion (3 4 sentences)


Integrated Writing Essay
PARAGRAPH 1: Introduction (2-3 sentences)

PARAGRAPH 2: Main points from the reading

PARAGRAPH 3: Main points from the lecture

PARAGRAPH 4: Conclusion (2-3 sentences)

At the end of the day, there is absolutely no substitute for hard work and study, but a few tips and tricks certainly won't hurt either!
