My ninth tip is a warning: be careful.
Be careful of what? A lot of the times, students will see in both the reading and the questions the same word.
So a question will be looking for some sort of word, you know, it's in the reading.
And so they'll think that because they see the word in the question and in the reading that that's the word they need or that's the heading they need.
It's not always the case, it's very important to not use this logic.
It's important to know that this is not always a correct method, you know, sometimes, you will need specific detail, and you might write the wrong thing.
So if you see the word in the question and the reading passage, it's not necessarily the correct answer.
No. 10...okay, this is something we're going to practice together, now.
It's good to practice skimming and scanning in general for the reading test.
"Scanning" is where you use keywords, and you just quickly look through the passage looking for a specific word or a specific piece of information, okay?
So one way to get good at skimming...not skimming, scanning...is to scan backwards.
Now, how would I do this? Okay, I'm going to ask a question.
How many passages are on the IELTS?
Now, before you read, I want you to look for a number, and look this way. Okay?
So you can start scanning, how many passages are on the IELTS?
You're just looking for the keyword,
if you read the sentence, like, "Students read three passages, they get progressively harder...", you're wasting too much time reading.
It's a lot better if you just look for the piece of information, in this case, a number,
so I could just go, "Three, there are three passages." Okay.
