7 Tricks for Students to Improve their IELTS Reading Ability

The IELTS Reading test is a language exam that measures your ability to understand written English. The most challenge part of the IELTS examination is that you have to read and answer questions about what you have just read without rereading or going back over anything. This blog post will give you 7 tricks for students to improve their IELTS reading ability for preparing for the reading section of their IELTS exam.

– Read the passage at least twice before answering any questions or attempting to answer them. The first time you read, please read it slowly and try to understand what is being written about – this will help with vocabulary recognition in later parts of the reading test because many words are repeated. If you cannot remember an important word when reading for a second time, highlight it or write it in a separate notebook, so you do not forget.

If you cannot remember an important word when rereading a section that you have already read, highlight it or write it down, so you do not forget.
–  Keep a dictionary handy for vocabulary that you do not know how to pronounce or spell. You can use the IELTS Reading Listening Vocabulary list as a reference to look up words and then check if they are in your language – this will help you learn more words.

– If you come across a word or sentence that you do not know, reread it and try to figure out what the meaning might be – this is also helpful for vocabulary recognition.

– Mark any words in bold letters or underline them so that you can come back to these words later on when answering questions about the passage. You may think you understand a word but forget what it means when writing your answer to a question.
