http://theonlineenglishclub.com In this lesson I will answer a question asked by one of my students and give you some IELTS reading tips. "I understand most of a reading test but I can't find answers to the questions. How can I read a text and find the answers to the questions?" If you have a similar problem to this student then you should be happy. This is a good problem to have and by following a few IELTS reading tips you can solve this problem. If you read and understand most of what you read, you are doing really well. Congratulations. In the IELTS reading test you not only have to understand the text but you have to show you understand by answering specific questions and finding specific details. Some questions and question types are easier than others. All of the questions in the IELTS test require similar skills. One skill that all IELTS candidates should be good at is skimming and scanning. These skills are usually thought of as one skill but they are a little different. Skimming means looking over a text to identify key words, important points and repeated information. This would include titles, subtitles, first and last paragraphs. Scanning refers to looking for specific information such as names, numbers, places or dates. If you know that the answer to a question is a number you don't need to read the whole text, just scan the text and look for all the numbers, which number refers to the answer of your question.
