Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's video, we are going to be looking at the IELTS, that

0:09

scary test a lot of you have to do. We're going to look at, specifically, one type of

0:17

reading question for the academic reading. So this isn't for the general; it's for the

0:22

academic reading. We're going to talk about the question that has to do with "true, false,

0:29

or not given". So this is a specific question. It may or may not be on your test, but I think,

0:39

personally, this is one of the most difficult questions on the reading section of the IELTS.

0:45

So I'm going to give you some tips and strategies on how to do well on this section. Okay, so

0:53

let's get started. In this section, what you are going to find

0:57

is a reading passage. So you will have a long passage on maybe cybercrime, maybe food security,

1:08

on the history of the Internet -- it can be on anything. After the passage, there will

1:14

be some statements, some facts, okay? What you need to do is you need to say if the fact

1:24

matches -- if it's true based on the reading, if it's false based on the reading, or if

1:32

the information is not given in the reading. So I will explain "true", "false", "not given"

1:40

in detail in just a minute. Okay. What else to know about the "true, false, or not given"?

1:48

Another important thing about this question is we're not talking about the question that

1:54

has to do with the writer's opinion. There's a very similar question on the IELTS that

2:00

asks about the writer's opinion. That's the "yes, no, not given". This is only on "true,

2:08

false, not given", not "yes, no, not given". Just -- hopefully, that will clear up any

2:13

confusion. Okay. So let's get started. What do they mean by "true" in these questions?

2:22

When would you write "true"? I will show you. You can write "true" or "T". "T" is shorter.

2:31

If there is a fact and it is clearly written, you write "T". If the fact is clearly written

2:40

in the reading, you would write "T". You'll often see synonyms, and, again, write "T"

2:51

only if you actually see this fact written. If you know the fact is true, but it's not

2:59

written, don't write "true". Only write "true" if, with your eyes, you read it, and you see

3:06

it in the fact. You see it in the reading; write "true". So I'll give you an example

3:11

of this type of question. Here is just a part of a passage. The reading

3:18

is a lot longer, but here is a short version that you might find on the IELTS. "This increase

3:25

in cybercrime has alarmed many experts." So it would be a long passage. You might see

3:33

something like that. And then, at the end of the reading, one of the statements you

3:38

might see might say, "Cyber crime is on the rise." You need to say if this is "true",

3:45

"false", or "not given". So how do you know if it's "true", "false", or "not given"?

3:52

My advice to you is first, read the statement: "Cyber crime is on the rise"; underline any

4:00

key words. "Cyber crime" -- this is a keyword. "is on the 'rise'" -- that's a keyword, okay?

4:12

Then you go back to the reading passage, and you quickly scan for these words or synonyms.

4:23

What are "synonyms"? "Synonyms" are words that mean the same thing but are different

4:29

words. So what is a synonym of "rise"? "Increase", "go up", okay? So let's see if we can find

4:38

"cyber crime" or "rise". So I would scan the passage -- oh, the word "increase", "cybercrime".
