Help with IELTS reading

by / Friday, 22 August 2014

Do you need some help with IELTS reading and ideas for writing task 2? Do you find the news difficult to follow?


Why not start with news aimed at children? The vocabulary will be easier to understand.


Try the following websites:


First read an article and write down what you think it’s about.  If there is any vocabulary you don’t know, try to guess the meaning from the context. Then check the meaning in an ENGLISH-ENGLISH dictionary to see how much you got right.


After that, practise the spelling of any new words, use the cover and check method.


You could also get your classmates to read the same article and compare your ideas.


Here’s a link to the British Council’s website for more help with IELTS.


Good luck!
