This lesson comes from a request by Aditya from Maharashtra, India. Aditya says he is preparing for a competitive exam and he has to do reading comprehension exercises as part of the exam, and he wants to know the best way to do these. Before we start, if you want to request a lesson, just leave a comment. In your comment, tell me your name, and I will mention you in the video. OK, in this lesson I will give you some important tips and strategies for reading comprehension exercises. I will give you a reading plan that you can follow, and there are exercises in this lesson for you to practice. Alright, now my teaching experience is mostly with exams like the IELTS and TOEFL, but the tips that I give you in this lesson will help you in any exam situation. So the first thing is: when it comes to reading in an exam, budget your time. That means: you should know how many reading passages there are in the exam, how many exercises there are and how much time you have. In the IELTS exam, for example, there are three reading passages and you have one hour to do all of them. So then divide your time amongst those passages – for IELTS, you might spend roughly 20 minutes per passage. In some exams, one passage might be shorter or easier, and another passage might be longer or more difficult. In that case, obviously, you should plan to spend less time on the short passage, and more time on the long passage. And you should time yourself – if you are allowed to wear a watch in your exam, look at your watch and keep track of the time. If you plan for 20 minutes per passage, stick to that plan. Now, if you’re not allowed to wear a watch, then use the clock in the room or hall, or ask the invigilators how much time you have left. Alright, that’s the first thing: budgeting your time. So now the exam starts – and you have the first reading passage in front of you – what do you do? Well, I’ll tell you what you should NOT do – don’t start at the beginning and read slowly to the finish. Many students do this – and the problem is that when you get to the end, you will have forgotten a lot of the details in the middle, and when you read the questions, you have to go back and read the passage again to find the answers. Instead, here’s the plan that you should follow: your first step in reading should be to skim the passage. What does that mean? Well, skimming is actually something that we do with milk. It’s when you heat or boil milk, and the fat rises to the top in the form of cream. Removing that layer of fat is called skimming. When it comes to reading, skimming means to read the surface of the text quickly to understand the overall message. So if there’s a heading or title to the passage, and if there are subheadings, read all of these first. They will tell you the subject of the text. Then read the first sentence of each paragraph – they will give you a good idea of the overall message. Let’s practice this. You see two paragraphs on the screen, but only the first sentence in each paragraph is visible. Stop the video, read the sentences and try to understand the main topic in each paragraph. Alright, so what do you think the topic of the whole passage might be? It could be the negative effects of social media on children. What about the first paragraph? What is it about? Well it says that using social media can affect a child’s writing skills. And the second paragraph? It says that some people don’t agree with this – that is, the first paragraph – for two reasons: scientific reasons and practical reasons (pragmatic).

IELTS – 3 Reading Strategies

Is the IELTS Reading section very challenging for you? Can't finish all the readings and questions before the time is up? In this lesson, you will learn three approaches to the IELTS Reading section and their pros and cons. The goal of this lesson is to help you finish the test on time without compromising your understanding of the readings. Learn how to read less while answering more questions correctly. After watching, make sure to do the quiz to test your understanding. Good luck on your test! https://www.engvid.com/ielts-3-reading-strategies/ https://www.GoodLuckIELTS.com/ https://www.writetotop.com/ WATCH NEXT IELTS Writing: The 3 Essay Types https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ-Vyqxn1To TRANSCRIPT Hi again. Welcome back to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. Today's lesson is about IELTS. As usual, with IELTS lessons, I will be speaking a little bit faster than normal. It's good for your listening practice. But if you're not taking the IELTS, you can still listen and try to follow us as we go through this section. So, let's begin. Today, I'm going to look at the IELTS reading section. I'm going to look at three different approaches to tackling the IELTS reading section. Students always ask me: "What should I do with the reading? How do I do it? How can I finish on time? How can I answer more questions?" Right? So I'm going to give you three approaches, three different ways to try to do the IELTS. Okay? We're going to look at three different ways. They're completely different from each other. The most important thing I want to tell you before we start: you have to know what works for you. Okay? One of these approaches will work for you; the others may not. Practice all three. If you're comfortable with one and it seems to work for you, and your score seems to be getting better, stick with that one and practice that one. Don't try to do all three each time. Figure out which one works, and just practice that one the most. Okay? The most obvious one and the first one we're going to talk about: read the entire passage, and then tackle the questions. Now, a few things to say, good and bad, about this approach. So, you have 20 minutes, let's say, that you're going to start from the first passage, you're going to do about 17 minutes; the second passage, you're going to spend 20 minutes; the last passage, you're going to spend 23, 24, 25 minutes. So, you have to do this very fast. So: can you read the entire passage and do the questions in that timeframe? Okay? That's the question you must ask yourself. Are you a fast reader? Can you comprehend everything you're reading? How is your vocabulary? Things like this. Some people, they must read everything, from beginning to end, and then go to the questions. But they can also keep; they can retain the information they've read, so when they go to the questions, they know where to go back and look for the answers. Now, the good part about this is that you have all the information in your head once you've read the entire passage. The bad part is that you're going to be reading the passage twice. Okay? Or not the whole passage, but you're going to read big chunks of the passage twice. You'll have read it the first time, you'll go to the questions, and then you'll be reading again to find the answers, because you're looking for specific words now. When you get to the questions, sometimes it's only one word difference from what you read in the passage. So, do I recommend this? Yes and no. If you're a fast reader and you can comprehend, then yes, do that. If you're not a fast reader, then no, don't do this. You'll be wasting too much time and reading more than you need to. What I'm going to do with these two approaches is show you how to read less. So you don't need to read the entire passage; you just need to read the areas that contain the answers to the questions. So, the second approach: go straight to the questions. You look at the question. First of all, understand the type of the question. Is it a multiple choice? Is it a fill-in-the-blank, like a summary? Are you looking for like headings for each paragraph? Are you looking for the title? Etc. Figure out what you're looking for, read the question carefully, pick out the keywords in the question or the key idea in the question, and then scan the passage. Don't read the passage. Just quickly look everywhere for where that information ought to be.
Have You Thought About Reading Comprehension Strategies?
 
08:14
Have you ever thought about reading comprehension strategies and teaching your kid to think about the book before reading it? Reading books in general is important from an early age and giving the kids the chance to expect the story of the book and the things they will experience in it. Reading comprehension strategies is all about summarizing, sequencing, inferencing, comparing and contrasting, building some conclusions, problem solving, self-questioning, relating the story to the background knowledge, knowing the difference between the fact and the opinion and eventually finding the main idea, the important facts related to it and supporting the whole story with some details. These are the different elements that every parent should think about and teach to his/her kids when it comes to homeschooling them and while they are giving them the chance to know how to read books, not just in learning to read and spell the words correctly, but in the way they are supposed to think about that book in general. Kids love to hear some stories before they go to bed but at some point they should also love the idea of reading these stories to themselves at some point. To make the whole thing of reading a book interesting, the kid should think about it in a whole different way and that is what reading comprehension strategies are all about. In this video, Michelle was teaching Aaron how to think about reading the story in a more thoughtful way; thinking about the name of the story and expecting the events from it, thinking about the main character and expecting its behavior through the whole story, asking himself whether the story will turn out to be interesting or not, etc. There are different things that the person could get about a story just from the cover it carries and this is one of the different things needed when it comes to a story and reading comprehension strategies. When the kid connects between the facts that he/she already knows and those found in the story, it becomes easier for them to focus on the details and try to understand the story as it goes. When the kid is asked questions about the story even before starting to read it, he/she will also want to look for the clues and thus will want to read the story to find these clues. Inferencing is linking what the kid might already know with the things he/she is reading in the story without being stated in a straightforward way. A lot of people think that teaching the kids to read books is teaching them how to spell the letters and the words correctly and making the right sounds they should give (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UGSFKYDRyc). Reading is also about knowing the alphabet because this is the base of reading the letters and knowing how to connect them with one another (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=339D5-WijRk). There are lots of interesting techniques used in teaching the kids to write letters, such as those used with play doh (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7GsJrDdCVU) and this of course comes in addition to the ordinary techniques in writing the letters (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=339D5-WijRk). If you are searching for the different ways that you could teach your kids the alphabet through, this could happen through some of the different songs that are taught in schools or even through teaching them the names of the animals (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UeKeWYAN7M). It is believed that kids find anything interesting when it is delivered to them in the form of songs, pictures and stories or else in the form of games and toys, these are the things that usually attract their attention and make them ready to learn something new. Reading comprehension strategies are important and that is what teaching the kids to read books is all about; it is not just about the story but it is also about the strategies that the kids will consider before and while reading the books.
