Hello. I'm Margot Politis. Welcome to Study English, IELTS preparation.

0:19

Today on Study English, you'll have the chance to practice your reading comprehension skills.

0:24

These are important skills, not just for the IELTS reading test, but for general academic

0:30

studies as well.

0:32

Today, we'll focus on the skills you need to answer the range of question types in the

0:37

IELTS reading test.

0:39

Let's begin by taking a look at the text.

0:42

So there's our comprehension piece.

0:57

It seems quite long. But let's start at the beginning.

1:02

Read the title.

1:04

We know that the passage is about naturopathic medicine.

1:08

Do you know anything about the subject?

1:12

You know the word medicine, but maybe not naturopathic.

1:17

It's OK if you don't. You don't need to understand every word. We can probably figure out the

1:22

meaning by paying attention to the context the word is used in, or by looking closely

1:28

at the parts of the word.

1:31

We know that naturopathic is an adjective, because it qualifies medicine.

1:37

Now, let's break naturopathic down.

1:41

The first part naturo- sounds like nature.

1:46

The ending is the suffix -ic. Do you know other words that end in -ic?

1:53

How about photographic or historic?

1:57

The suffix -ic means relating to or of.

2:02

So we could guess that naturopathic means something like relating to nature.

2:07

Then we can guess that the meaning of naturopathic medicine is something like medicine that heals

2:16

in a natural way.

2:18

Can you think of any words you know that might belong to this subject?

2:23

How about:

2:24

herbs

2:25

plants

2:26

health

2:28

healing or

2:30

disease
