9 out of 10 students find reading test the toughest of all modules.Plenty of My students as well as the students from other institutions frequently ask for reading tips.
So, I have come up with the first article.
This article is the introduction of the series of the article which would be uploaded on this website. In this series of the article we would learn the practical aspects of improving your reading in general and your score in IELTS reading in particular.
I am deeply concerned for all the students who longed for improving IELTS reading. But, I would like to tell you very much in advanced that there is no magic stick (like the one which harry potter had) to improve your score in reading like most of the famous websites claim.
The tips discussed over here are not for those people who want to improve their reading score overnight and easily. Improving your reading score requires hard work, consistency and patience.
However, I would like to assure you on one thing. If you consistently work on the tips discussed here. If you are ready to put sincere efforts, I can take all the responsibility to improve your score.
So, in the very first step, you have to understand the difference between the people who is getting only 5.5 to 6.0 band score with those who got 7 or higher.
The main difference is the amount of books they have read in English.
Ask yourself one question.
How many books have I read so far in English? Or
How many hours a day do I spend on serious, advanced reading?
You will definitely get the answer of your poor reading score if you have answered above questions honestly.
Students complain frequently that they run out of time in reading test because the reading was lengthy. But in reality, reading was standard. Your reading speed is too slow to cope up with the standard of IELTS.
Sometime, students do not comprehend the questions or paragraph. What is the reason? Their comprehension is too low or not up to the level.
The solution of above problems is reading. Serious, advanced, vigorous reading.
If you want to get higher band score in reading test, the first, basic and vital step is reading. Students do everything for improvement except reading. So they get the result of poor band score again and again.
From now on keep in mind that it is next to impossible for you to get higher band score if you don’t read. If you keep on reading for 2 hours a day for three months consecutively it is my guarantee that you would improve minimum 2 band score from your present level.
Reading, more reading, still more reading is the key to get higher band score.
