IELTS Energy 156: A VITAL Strategy For the Toughest Reading and Listening Questions

IELTS Listening and IELTS Reading prediction strategy

Do you know how to deal with the toughest Reading and Listening questions on the IELTS Exam?

Today you’ll get a strategy that will pull you through the toughest parts of the Reading and the Listening tests and help you come out with a 7.

The big idea here is that you have to be an active test taker on the Listening and Reading versus being a passive student who waits for the answers to come to them.

When things get tough toward the end of both sections you need strategies to help you.

You don’t have time to read everything on the Reading and understand it all.

In our course we outline the 3-step strategies you need for Listening and Reading and specific question types.

However, an essential part of every strategy for Listening and Reading is prediction.

Why is it essential?

It forces your mind to be active.

It lets you know what to expect on the Listening and what answers to look for on the Reading.

This strategy  cuts out so much time wasting.

We talked about this when we discussed our brain box strategy for Listening.

This helps us comprehend quickly.

It’s all about speed and timing on the IELTS.

The faster we can predict and activate our brain box, the faster we can get the answer and move on.

Listen to the episode for examples of how we predict what parts of speech to expect when we begin reading.
