IELTS Reading Tips
- What are global reading skills and how important are they for IELTS?
IELTS Academic Reading passages are long and reflect the type of reading you have to do on a course of academic study. You need to form a global idea of each passage: a mental summary of the content and overall structure.
- How are these skills tested?
Global multiple choice questions test how well you understand the purpose/theme of the whole passage. Paragraph headings test your understanding of the main themes of each paragraph.
