Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's video, we are going to talk about the reading module

0:07

of the IELTS. I'm going to tell you some of my top IELTS reading tips. So let's get started.

0:16

During the reading module of the IELTS, there will be three passages that you read, and

0:22

for each passage, there are a bunch of questions you have to answer. The first tip I have for

0:27

you is: don't spend too much time reading the passages. What happens to a lot of students

0:35

is they read word-for-word everything. They see a word they don't know, they keep trying

0:39

to understand the meaning. You don't have to understand everything to understand the

0:45

passage. If you don't know a word, that's fine.

0:48

The better thing to do than to slowly read is to use skills such as skimming which means

0:55

you quickly read for the main idea or scanning, meaning you look for key words or you look

1:05

for specific detail. A lot of students, what they do for the IELTS is they will actually

1:11

read the questions first, and then they will read the passage. And that way, they... They

1:17

know what they're looking for. You don't have to do this; it's one technique. Some students

1:23

find this a lot easier, other students like to read the passage first and then answer

1:28

the questions. I recommend trying both out. First do the reading, then the questions,

1:35

then try to read the questions first and read the passage and see what you like better,

1:40

what you're more comfortable doing.

1:42

So the key thing here is: don't read slowly. It's a timed test, you have three parts you

1:50

have to get through, 40 questions; it's very important that you read quickly. You can start

1:56

practicing reading quickly also. There are a number of resources out there where you

2:01

can actually start practicing. And time yourself when you practice, make sure you're not going

2:07

over time.

2:09

Number two, similar to number one, my tip is: don't spend too long on each question.

2:19

Some of the questions are difficult-they're possible, you can do well on them-but some

2:25

of them, you might be reading and you might think: "Oh, I don't know what the answer is,"

2:29

and you might look at it, and think, and try, and try, and try. Well, the problem is if

2:35

you spend too much time on a question, there are 40 questions and the one hour limit for

2:41

the test, it goes by very quickly. So you can spend too much time on each question.

2:47

So what I recommend is read a question, try to figure out the answer. If you don't know

2:54

it, you can put a star beside it and come back after. Don't spend too long on any question.

3:04

You can also take a guess, move on, and come back later.

3:09

My third tip: spend less time on earlier questions. For the reading module, the... Like I said,

3:18

there are three passages. The first passage is the easiest, then the second passage, and

3:24

then the third question. If you spend all your time on the first passage, you're not

3:29

going to have time to do the second and the third. And, like I said, the first one is

3:33

easier. So a good idea is to spend less time on the first passage, maybe about 17 minutes,

3:42

then the second passage maybe spend about 20 m
