“Reading for IELTS” is part of the “Improve your Skills” series: three preparation books which cover all aspects of the IELTS exam for students aiming for an IELTS band score of 6.0-7.5. This course aims to develop the key reading skills, and explains the language and exam techniques for the IELTS Reading paper.
The course can be used together with the other books in the series: “Writing for IELTS 6.0-7.5” and “Listening & Speaking for IELTS 6.0-7.5”.
The books in this series can be used either in a classroom or for self study. The course will guide you through the activities step by step, so you can use this book with or without a teacher.
If you are studying as part of a class, your teacher will direct you on how to use each activity. Some activities can be treated as discussions, and they can be used to share ideas and techniques with other learners.
The course is made up of 10 units, each aimed at developing a particular reading skill (e.g., scanning). Every unit is themed around a commonly occurring topic from the IELTS exam.
Each unit consists of:
• Skills development: explanation, examples and tasks to develop and practise relevant reading skills both for general use and the exam. Each skill is broken down into simple stages with references stating why each skill is important for IELTS.
• Vocabulary: useful vocabulary for the IELTS exam.
• Exam focus and practice: focus on how each skill relates to the exam, followed by authentic IELTS-style tasks for real exam practice.
There are also Skills tips boxes throughout the book containing useful information and ideas on how to approach the different exam reading skills.
How will Improving your Skills increase your chances of success in the exam?
The skills section contains a detailed syllabus of core reading skills which are useful both in the exam and in everyday life – reading for specific information and understanding attitude and opinion. People acquire these skills in their native language with much ease. But it requires some practice when English is not the first language. It is also noted that these important skills often get ignored.
Each unit includes useful vocabulary and phrases for the exam. In “Improve Your Skills: Reading for IELTS”, you will find a wide range of topic vocabulary and ideas to ensure that you are well prepared when you attempt the real exam.
In any exam, it is important to be prepared for the types of tasks you are likely to be given, and to have methods ready to answer any question. The Skills tip boxes give short, simple advice about different types of questions, as well as study skills and how to effectively use the skills you have learnt. The course covers every question type that you will face in the IELTS exam.
