Academic Reading

The test
• This part is very difficult because you only hear one time and you
only have 60 minutes. The time is limited. so, you have to go
answering the question in the answer sheet while you go listening. If
you don’t do that you would have to answer very fast. So, nobody
won’t be able to read your answers.
Strategies
• Skimming—This means reading very
quickly to get the gist of the text:
Looking at the headings, subheadings,
the beginning of each paragraph, any
pictures and illustrations, noticing the
layout of the text and noticing the
words that are repeated throughout the
text.
• Scanning—This means looking only for
specific things in a text: Perhaps types
of words, words with capital letters,
numbers or specific words or phrases.
DO NOT READ THE READING PASSAGE
FIRST
It is a mistake to begin reading a passage without first read a basic
information. There are 3 parts to the Reading Test, and many candidates
begin each part in the same way - by reading the passage.
They might read it in detail, or scan it quickly to find out what the topic of the
passage is and to get a general idea of the contents.
READ THE TEST IN A LOGICAL ORDER
you need to look at the information in any of the 3 parts of the Reading Test:
Read each part of the test in the order:
1. The Title of the reading passage should give you a rough idea about the
main topic of the passage.
2. The Headings for each section of the passage refer to what is contained in
each section, and where information can be located.
3. Bold printed words indicate that those words are of some importance.
They can also help you to predict information contained in the passage.
4. It is said that a Picture is worth a thousand words. Always look at
illustrations, figures, tables, graphs and diagrams that accompany a
reading passage.
5. The Instructions contain important information that you must read. If you do
not read the instructions, you will almost certainly answer some of the questions in
the wrong manner.
6. The Example not only provides you with the correct way to answer the
questions, it tells you, in summarised form, more about the passage itself.
7. the Questions themselves provide valuable hints about the ideas contained in
the passage as well as specific information to look for on your first reading.

Academic reading

  • 1. Academic Reading Bryan Esteban Botia Rodriguez Francy Alvarez Pineda María Alejandra Hurtado
  • 2. The test • This part is very difficult because you only hear one time and you only have 60 minutes. The time is limited. so, you have to go answering the question in the answer sheet while you go listening. If you don’t do that you would have to answer very fast. So, nobody won’t be able to read your answers.
  • 3. Strategies • Skimming—This means reading very quickly to get the gist of the text: Looking at the headings, subheadings, the beginning of each paragraph, any pictures and illustrations, noticing the layout of the text and noticing the words that are repeated throughout the text. • Scanning—This means looking only for specific things in a text: Perhaps types of words, words with capital letters, numbers or specific words or phrases.
  • 4. DO NOT READ THE READING PASSAGE FIRST It is a mistake to begin reading a passage without first read a basic information. There are 3 parts to the Reading Test, and many candidates begin each part in the same way - by reading the passage. They might read it in detail, or scan it quickly to find out what the topic of the passage is and to get a general idea of the contents.
  • 5. READ THE TEST IN A LOGICAL ORDER you need to look at the information in any of the 3 parts of the Reading Test: Read each part of the test in the order: 1. The Title of the reading passage should give you a rough idea about the main topic of the passage. 2. The Headings for each section of the passage refer to what is contained in each section, and where information can be located. 3. Bold printed words indicate that those words are of some importance. They can also help you to predict information contained in the passage. 4. It is said that a Picture is worth a thousand words. Always look at illustrations, figures, tables, graphs and diagrams that accompany a reading passage.
  • 6. 5. The Instructions contain important information that you must read. If you do not read the instructions, you will almost certainly answer some of the questions in the wrong manner. 6. The Example not only provides you with the correct way to answer the questions, it tells you, in summarised form, more about the passage itself. 7. the Questions themselves provide valuable hints about the ideas contained in the passage as well as specific information to look for on your first reading.
  • 7. CONSIDER THE PASSAGE LAYOUT There are 8 basic types of IELTS reading question tasks: • matching tasks • multiple choice tasks • short-answer question tasks • true/false tasks • sentence completion tasks • classification tasks • gapfill tasks • table, chart or diagram completion tasks Each reading passage requires a certain strategy or approach in order to make the best use of your time. The strategy to use depends on the type of question tasks that accompany each passage. for example: it might be better to search the passage for the question topic keywords/phrases, and to look closely around those keywords for further matching keywords/phrases to obtain the answer you require.
  • 8. SCAN THE READING PASSAGE Scanning is the method to use when you need to search a page quickly for information that you require. You may be looking for the general idea of the information on the page (skim quickly through the information), or you may wish to scan for specific information. In either case, the method is to sweep your eyes across the page slowly and smoothly, starting at the top left, and working your way across and down the page in a wavelike motion as in the illustration below.
  • 9. 42 Read the topic sentences first When you are ready to search for the passage of the reading to obtain the information you must know which parts of the passage should read first, since you do not have time to read every word of the passage especially if your reading rate is of average type.
  • 10. 45. Matching tasks Matching tasks can be divided into 2 types: Type 1: Consists of a list of elements in which equal numbers are chosen to match to make. Type 2: This consists of a much longer list of items to choose the number of matches to make.
  • 11. 50 Read the Glossary The passage of reading comes with a glossary, which helps to know the meaning of the words that do not understand this helps to better understand the words used in that context.
  • 12. Remember maxium words requirement It’s very important to follow the rules, you have pay close attention what the questions are saying that you do. For example If the question says that the answer has three words you have to look for the answers that have only three words. I’t doesn’t mind that the answer be closer to what you are thinking.
  • 13. 55. check figures and diagrams Do not forget that the answers you are looking for may be given in a figure, diagram, illustration, graph, table or chart that accompanies the reading passage. Always check footnotes, too.
  • 14. 57. CONSIDER THE LOCATION OF THE ANSWER You must see the word after the key words and the distance between one and another keyword. Also the phrase between two keywords. The answer usually is at the paragraph of the keyword.
  • 15. 58. CHARTS AND TABLES IN QUESTION TASKS Keywords, keyphrases, and examples are also features of questions within charts and tables. Do not overlook the words already contained in a chart or table in your hurry to find the answer in the reading passage. These words can also be considered as 'examples'.
  • 16. Differences between academic reading and general reading. • The reading test is different for the academic and general training modules. The academic reading consists of three long reading passages with around thirteen or fourteen questions for each reading passage. There are forty questions in total and candidates have one hour to complete the test. The texts are more academically orientated than the general training texts. The general training reading test is also in three sections and it also lasts an hour. Section one has two or three texts and they will be on subjects that tests a candidates to operate in an English environment. Section two is on training or work topics and there are also two texts. Section three has one longer text. Like the academic reading, there are around thirteen or fourteen questions for each reading section and there are forty questions in total.
