(Deciding which are the key or most important words in a question can help you locate the appropriate section of the text more quickly.) • Think of the similar meaning of the key words or phrases in terms of meaning transformation keys to locate the answer in the text. • Read around the located information, and try to figure out the meaning. (Rephrase what it says in that section in your own words) Match your paraphrasing to the closest in meaning from the options
(If a question is difficult, don’t spend too much time on it—go to the next one. Once you find the next answer, you can go back in the text to find the answer to the previous question. This is because, in this type of task, the questions are in the same order as the information in the text. ) If you are struggling to get a higher band in IELTS reading, please call today at 780-437-5745.
