IELTS reading

The reading section of IELTS is not easy either. Texts can often be very long and on topics ranging from complex scientific issues to articles on psychology and the environment. The IELTS exam is trying to test the skills you will need in the real world and trying to assess your ability to extract specific information from written texts, as well as understanding their general meaning.

Our online English lessons cover all these topics and more!

The best way to prepare for IELTS is to do a great deal of reading practice and keep working to identify key words in the questions or statements. You should also focus on looking for synonyms, opposites or words with similar meanings in the reading passage when answering the True, False, Not Given questions.

Remember, reading not only helps your vocabulary increase, but will also help with your writing. Practise as much as you can!
