IELTS Energy 210: How to Improve Your Reading Score If You’ve Hit a Wall in 3 Simple Steps

ielts reading challengeIs it impossible for you to increase your IELTS reading score?

Today get the 3 things you must do to get that score higher.

Reading is frustrating.

A lot of students tell us that they can’t improve their score because they are bad readers or because they don’t like to read.

What does it mean to say that you don’t like reading?

You don’t have to read mainstream novels that you don’t find interesting.

If you find a type of reading that you enjoy you can build a culture of thinking.

You will also have great ideas for the IELTS Writing test and IELTS Speaking.

Reading genres like science fiction help us build our ability to come up with spontaneous and creative ideas.

Non-fiction can help you generate ideas and opinions on business, language, and globalization.

 

  • Step 1: Get into reading. Choose a type of material that you enjoy. You don’t have to read what everyone else is reading. Choose what you like and stick with it.

 

  • Step 2: Focus on test strategies. You cannot do this without strategies. You don’t have enough time to read every word and take your time finding the answer on the reading test. We offer this in our course. We show you how to tackle every question type in reading and then you get two practice tests to make sure you can implement what you learn. If you are in a class and your teacher gives you 5 steps or more then that teacher doesn’t know the test. You need a simpler system. Look for testimonials before you purchase a course.

 

  • Step 3: Practice, Practice, Practice. You can’t just watch a video lecture, do practice exercises and move on. You need to do the practice tests, take the strategies and use them over and over again. Practice tests should not be free. If a school is giving away practice tests then you should be suspicious of that school because the quality of the practice tests might not be high.
