屠鸭之路——simon阅读

说在前面

经过国内英语考试的熏陶,对于阅读,应该是国内人的强项才对。然而在上一次雅思考试中,血淋淋地经历了时间不够没答完的悲惨现实。雅思的阅读量比较大,文章长度也比较长,因此学会一些技巧,在雅思考试中可以起到事半功倍的效果。

阅读技巧有很多种,国内的老师在这方面讲得也是不错的。听了一下simon的,有一些地方也是很值得借鉴,因此也在这里做一下笔记。

⭐️ 该笔记配合上simon的阅读课程食用更佳!(附含attached sheet)

1️⃣Introduction

lesson 1文稿

Tips

  • 1 hour
  • 40 questions
  • Read the passages and answer questions about the information

Reading comprehension

  • Ielts reading is testing your understanding of written English
  • A vocabulary test

My aim will be to give you what i think are the most effective techniques to help you do those questions and answer them quickly without wasting time. The aim in this course is to make you feel a bit more confident with every lesson and a bit better prepared. So by the end of the course, you should be ready to go and know exactly what you need to do in the exam.

2️⃣ Basic exam techniques

lesson 2文稿:

Basic Tips

  • Don’t read the passage first

  • Just read the title

  • Then go to the first question

    • If you read the whole passage first and time is a big problem in the aisle reading test.
  • ⭐️Underline keywords’ in the question (key)

    • Any word that you think is important in the question that you want to search for underlying it
  • ⭐️Then search for those words in the passage (key)

  • Underline them

    • it’s important to always underlying things that you find, because if your turning the paper over and you forget what you found, or you lose what you found, you’re going to waste time, so underlining things means that you won’t forget or lose them, also it helps you to focus on the important words that get you the answers, what I call the keywords.
  • Read that part of the passage carefully

  • Try to get the answer

 

  1. Read at normal speed
  2. Only skim/scan for names or numbers
  3. Miss any difficult questions, get to the end

Question types

  1. Gap-fill
  2. True / false / not given
  3. Yes / no / not given
  4. Multiple choice
  5. Matching paragraph headings
  6. Matching paragraph information
  7. Matching sentence endings
  8. Matching other features. E.g. names
  9. Short answer questions

Gap-fill

Types of ‘gap-fill question

  1. Fill the gaps with words from the passage
  2. Fill the gaps to label a diagram
  3. Fill the gaps with words from a list/box
  4. Fill the gaps in a table

⭐️ You can normally find the answers IN ORDER in the passage

Keyword table

Finally, I tell my students that when they finished a reading exercise at home, not in the example of course, when you’re practicing at home, make a keyword table. so in this column, you have keywords in the questions. And then in the next column, you have similar words in the passage.

Those are the key words, or some of them that I would put in my table from today’s lesson. And even if they’re easy, keywords is always a good idea to make note of them like this, because the more you get used to finding keywords, the better you’ll get ielts reading.

3️⃣True/yes, False/no, Not given

lesson 3文稿:

Is there a difference between the following?

  • True, False, Not given

    • when the passage is about facts(Are the statements true according to the information in the passage?)
  • Yes, No, Not given

    • when the passage is about the writer’s views(Do the statements agree with the views expressed by the writer?)

Tip:

These differences are not important! We can approach both question types in the same way. Just think: correct, incorrect, not given

For example:

1602755323418

1602755356179

1602755367487

1602755380280

1602755394450

Remember

True/ Yes

  • the correct information is given

False / No

  • different information is given, contradicting the statement

Not given

  • we don ‘ t know the answer there isn’t enough information

⭐️ Find the keywords and then compare the question and passage carefully.

⭐️ Answers are always in the correct order in the passage
