Hello, and welcome to Study English, IELTS Preparation. I'm Margot Politis.

0:18

There are two IELTS Tests - the Academic Test and the General Training Test.

0:24

Today we're going to look at the Reading Module of the General Training Test.

0:30

The main difference between the General Test and the Academic Test is that the texts you

0:35

have to read are more practical and related to everyday life.

0:40

The General Reading Test is divided into 3 sections:

0:48

Section 1 has up to 3 short texts that you are likely to come across, such as entertainment

0:55

brochures, bus timetables, accommodation lists and instructions.

1:04

Section 2 has 2 passages that are work-related, for example job descriptions, and instructions

1:12

for using facilities at work.

1:14

Section 3 has one longer passage on a general topic, often a magazine article.

1:21

Let's have a closer look at a typical short text that you would be asked about in Section

1:30

1.

1:31

The questions you may be asked about a page like this only need short answers.

1:37

For example: 'On what page is the article about childhood obesity?'

1:43

You scan the page to find a title that mentions childhood obesity or means the same and find

1:50

the answer: 'Are children getting fatter?' - page 12.

1:57

It helps to be familiar with the way these texts are laid out. You need to practise scanning

2:03

these types of texts to find the information that relates to the question. Scanning means

2:09

looking for key words.

2:12

In the next section, Section 2, you will be asked about a work-related text that is a

2:18

bit more complex, such as this job advertisement.

2:23

It is important to know that information in job ads is presented in a particular way.

2:30

Being aware of the lay out will help you locate answers more quickly.

2:34

Because the texts in section 2 are longer, it is useful to preview them.

2:39

Let's reduce the ad to its headings.

2:42

We have: City of Greenfield; Position Description; Responsibilities; Key Selection Criteria

2:51

and Qualifications.

2:53

Under 'City of Greenfield' which is the name of the employer, we have some information

2:59

about the employer:

"Vibrant, modern and en
