IELTS READING: TRUE, FALSE, NOT GIVEN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNyLs7YWFL8 5. IELTS READING: TOP 10 TIPS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PDgVEhfKso TRANSCRIPT Oh, what a great book. Thank you, Jessica Whitehead. Are you doing an IELTS exam or will you be doing an IELTS exam in the future? Special shoutout to Pedro, thank you for helping me on this, and rock your exam. You're going to do it, boy. If you're studying IELTS, there's one section in the test that is difficult. They're all difficult, but it's the reading section. So, when you're doing your test, you have to read the passage quickly, you have to get all of the wonderful information, and then you have to answer the questions. So, what I want to help you do is something really cool called speed reading. When I was in grade 2, my teacher taught me something that was amazing. Usually when you read something, you take your little finger and you read along like this. So my teacher taught me at the young age of eight to get a bookmark, and instead of reading each word, you're going to read one whole sentence with an eyescape. So, instead of reading word by word with your little finger, you're going to put a bookmark on the sentence and you're going to focus on the sentence. This allows you to read something much faster. So, put your little finger away and grab a bookmark or a piece of paper. So, number six is: Use a bookmark. It helps you absorb the information faster. Another thing that you can do or not do is when you're reading: "The pizza was a wide pizza with ham and pineapple. It was the most exiting flavours, it was..." Don't read out loud. Two reasons: One, there're other people around you that you're probably disturbing, and there's probably been a scientific study that if you move your lips, you're doing extra work and you're kind of wasting time. Try and close your mouth. Don't: "Ra-ra-ra-ra" under your breath, don't move your lips. Just absorb it and read it. This helps you go through it faster and ultimately get that high score that you've all been looking for. Another tip is to pay attention to important key words. So, these are going to be things like dates and times, numbers, and proper nouns. So, please tell me you know what a proper noun is. A proper noun is a place or a person. It starts with a capital letter. So, one really, really good thing you can do is you can take your little highlighter and circle the important words. When you come back to the reading section or when you've read it, it sticks in your brain more. This is good for practicing, too. Some articles and some things have special punctuation. So, dashes. Dashes are a little line here and a little line at the end. There's a very, very good reason why they've used dashes, and that is they're telling you that this information is really important. It's giving you something extra or something that changes the idea about the sentence. So, the information between dashes or even between commas is put there for a reason, and it's probably got some wealth of information, maybe the answer to question number seven. Some readings that you have not necessarily on IELTS, but a newspaper if you're reading something for fun... Do people read for...? Yeah, they do read for fun, Ronnie. Okay. Is a special font. So, if the words are bold which means they're bigger; or if they're written in italics which means, like, handwriting; or if the words are underlined - this is going to give you some really strong information that it's important because they made it like this. When you first begin your IELTS test in the reading section, always read the questions first, then you'll know what information you're looking for. If you just read it willy-nilly without thinking about the questions, you've wasted a lot of time. So read the questions first, then go back and get the information that you need. And about paragraphs, this is a tricky thing that they do. I want you to read the first sentence, it's called the topic sentence. The topic sentence has... We'll say "the meat" or the importance of the paragraph. […]

How to improve your English by reading
How can reading improve your English? What reading strategies can you use to improve your vocabulary, pronunciation, fluency, and enunciation? In this instructional and motivational video, I tell you how picking up a book can not only help you to improve your vocabulary but your speaking confidence and presentation skills as well. Watch the lesson, and let me know some of your favourite books in the comments section! https://www.engvid.com/how-to-improve-your-english-by-reading/ TRANSCRIPT Hey, everyone. I'm Alex. Thanks for clicking, and welcome to this lesson on "How to Improve Your English By Reading". So, it might be very obvious how reading can help you improve, you know, your speaking in English, particularly your vocabulary, but there are a number of reasons and a number of things that reading regularly and reading in specific ways can actually help you to improve your English, and also not only like your reading English, but your ability to speak properly or to speak confidently. And again, this applies not only to English as a second language learners, but also to English speakers, period. So pick up a book, and here's how picking up a book can help you to improve your English. So, number one: You can improve your English by picking up any book, reading out loud, and exaggerating what you're reading. You might think: "This sounds ridiculous", but if you are a second language learner, this is a fantastic way to improve your enunciation, your pronunciation, and presentation skills. Even if you're not a second language learner... English as a second language learner. So, for example, it doesn't matter what type of genre you like, what type of books you like. Me, personally, I love science-fiction, I love fantasy. And I can turn to, you know, pages in any of these books and read out loud, exaggerate what I'm saying, and just the act of doing this, of speaking out loud what I'm reading makes me feel, again, more confident speaking in front of an audience, for example. So I'll just open to a random page here and... Okay, so in this book, just so you know, there's a horse, his name is Artaq. And it says: "Artaq did not hesitate. He veered toward the Silver River. The wolves came after, soundless, fluid, black terror. Will was sure that this time they would not escape. Allanon was no longer there to help them. They were all alone." Now, what you notice is I'm... I'm trying to exaggerate: "They were all alone." Even like my l's. And focus on every letter when you're reading, because this type of reading, reading out loud, exaggerating, if you are a professional, this is a great way to build that clarity in your speech when you're speaking in front of people, and pacing yourself, how fast you speak as well is important, obviously, when you're giving a presentation. This second part... Again, this one can apply to both native speakers of English, but it's more specifically geared towards English as a second language speakers, and that is: Paying attention to word endings. And especially "ed" and "s" endings. So, specifically past tense words, like "wanted", okay? Or plural words, like "hawks" instead of one hawk, because a lot of, again, English as a second language learners sometimes forget the "ed" ending when they're reading. I've taught classes where, you know, students have to read out loud, and they're so focused on reading and getting the words correct, but the pronunciation, they just drop the ends of words sometimes, especially "ed", especially "s". So let me see if I can quickly find an example. Okay, here's one: "When he stayed on his feet..." When he... Oh, why am I pointing? You can't see that. You can't see that. So: "When he stayed on his feet" this is one part of the sentence. Again, you have the verb "stayed", so some new learners of English will sometimes read that as: "When he stay", "When he stay", and they just drop the end. So please, please, please focus on those "ed" and "s" endings, and this will really help your fluency, the ability of others to understand you, as well as your enunciation. "Stayed", okay? Number three: Pay attention to punctuation. Now, punctuation refers to the use of commas, periods, question marks, exclamation marks when you're reading. By paying attention to these things, you can actually focus on improving your intonation and your fluency; two specific things. So, the intonation refers to the up and down movement of your voice when you are saying something or reading something. So, for example, you know, raise... In the second part I said: "Raise intonation for yes or no questions." So if you notice when you're reading that, you know, this person is asking a yes or no question, then your voice should be moving up at the end. And, you know in speaking, this also improves that. So, for example, in this book there is... Okay, here's a yes or no question, the question is: "Did you find her?"

Please do me a favour and subscribe to my YouTube channel here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=byJacksonJones Spreeder may be a free online browser application that can help you read at least three times quicker but it is totally free mainly because it runs in your browser. when you're using a speed reading piece of software that flashes up the words at a specific rate per minute, try not to read and say in your mind every word that flashes on the screen. what you want to do is allow the words to flow over you in a calm and natural way and allow the words to penetrate your mind. speed reading like this allows the information to bypass your short-term memory and go straight into your long-term memory which aides recall of the documents you are speed reading. one of the techniques you can use starts the speed reading software at a very high rate, and reduce the speed until you know and have read the document 6 or 7 times. you will find that even at 8000 words per minute you don't see much but you will read the whole document in short order and then as you reduce it you will notice that even at 1000 words or even 1500 words per minute you will see the words and read the book. Speed Reading like this will still only take you about an hour even if you read it with Spreeder 6 or 7 times. that is of course how big the. book is that you want to speed read. The other way you can speed read is to have multiple words on the screen like 2 or 3 and has the sentences come up you can read a book at about 9 hundred words per minute. Considering the reading speed of most Americans and Europeans is approximately 150 to 180 words per minute speed reading software like this can really help you reading through all the documents that you haven't got round to Reading yet. Hope you like the video Want to Speed Read Copy & Paste Easy?

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.

146. Speed Reading : A 7 Step System To Grasp Key Concepts Faster When Checking Emails Or Reading A
Listen to the full episode here: https://productiveinsights.com/146/ Speed Reading: A 7 Step System To Grasp Key Concepts Faster When Checking Emails Or Reading Articles Hello and welcome to episode 146 of the productive insights podcast. This is your host Ash Roy the founder of productiveinsights.com I’ve been MIA for the last couple of weeks because I’ve been agonising over whether or not to publish this episode. I face this challenge often because I’m always striving to deliver content that is interesting, actionable and useful to you as a listener. So eventually I asked my team and they said they’d definitely find it useful. I think they’re biased but I’m going to go with their advice and publish this episode anyway. So today we are going to be talking about speed reading while still being able to extract key concepts and ideas from a given body of text. We look at how to develop your skills in speed reading, when to use speed reading, (more importantly) when not to use it. Okay so let’s start by defining the term “speed reading” for the purposes of this podcast episode I define speed reading is the process of rapidly absorbing the key principles, ideas, and actionable strategies presented in a written form (typically in the form of an email, an article or book) In today’s information overloaded environment the amount of information we are required to process seems to be growing by the minute. We have a lot of emails coming in to our inbox, correspondence from various organizations arriving via snail mail, e-books that created an unprecedented access to information that has never existed in the history of humanity, and gazillions of online articles we tend to browse on the web as we educate ourselves in our business pursuits or chosen careers. So clearly, it would be very beneficial to be able to extract the key ideas from a body of text in a shorter space of time. And this is where speed-reading comes in. To me, being able to speed read is almost a superpower in today’s information overloaded environment. But to be an effective speed reader I believe it is important to be discerning about when to speed read and when not to speed read. So let’s talk about that first: In my experience, speed reading often means sacrificing access to detailed information that’s presented in a given body of text. The faster you read the less detail you tend to take in especially when it comes to remembering that detail. So if you’re reading up technical document such as terms and conditions of an important agreement that is signing your name against, then speed reading is not the answer in that situation. If you need to understand and absorb certain principles particularly when you’re learning them for the first time (for example when studying physics or learning calculus), speed-reading won’t work for you then either. In other words when you’re consuming information that is conceptually heavy and has a lot of detail and related concepts packed into a small amount of text, then speed reading is not going to work for you. Think professional texts with a lot of jargon such as medical text books, accounting principles, legal judgments etc. I used to read my legal judgements by reading facts of the case and then conclusion but don’t try this at home How to speed read (Hint: It’s about breaking old habits & changing your mindset towards speed reading) 1. Prime your brain for the content by asking yourself what you already know about this topic and making predictions around what you think the key ideas are likely to be 2. Eliminate or minimise subvocalisation 3. Avoid regression 4. introduce soft focus so you can read multiple words (phrases) and take them in at a time. (useful to use your breath as an anchor to create a diffused focus) 5. Read the article actively by consciously looking for themes and key ideas 6. (optional) make notes on a piece of paper (keep the notes brief – mainly triggers) 7. Practice Practice Practice 8. Optional step – go back and re-read the article at your normal pace to see if you’ve grasped the key concepts (don’t worry about having missed out on detail because that’s expected). This will give you a sense of re-assurance around effectively you’re speed reading in terms of comprehension. Use the feedback to speed up or slow down your reading and then look to gain speed again. Challenges Takes a lot of practice so you need to persistLearning when to use SR and when not to use it takes effort and practiceDon’t stop at the earliest sign of failureDon’t expect to speed read in a day. It takes practice and time to go from memory words to memory phrases (just like alphabet recognition to word recognition from memory took time when you started reading)Action Steps Start with a simple piece of text which isn’t conceptually heavySoften your focus (with breath as anchor)Try and read phrases rather than wordsDon’t subvocal

Speed Reading Tips And Techniques
Want to learn how to double your reading speed? Check Out: http://tinyurl.com/SpeedReadingTips Here are 5 tips that each takes less than 1 minute to learn. 1) Use a guide You can use a pencil or highlighter as a guide. I personally prefer to use a pencil as a guide for my reading. There are others who like to use a ruler or highlighter to read and highlight certain words when they are reading. 2) Read actively By using a pencil, you can place a mark near the paragraph that is important to you. You can also circle keywords from a passage to help you jog your memory. You can speed up your reading speed and concentration considerably by reading more actively. Good readers are active readers. They are able to read fast and comprehend the material read at high levels at the same time. 3) Do not sub-vocalise Do you notice that you tend to mouth words or read the words aloud silently in your head whenever you are reading? If you do, that means that you tend to sub-vocalise. Sub-vocalising can slow down your reading considerably. Try to reduce this as much as possible. For a start, you may want to only sub-vocalise the keywords that you want to remember and try to reduce the number of time you sub-vocalise. 4) Learn to skim and scan Skimming and scanning are very preliminary reading activities and this prepares your mind to be familiar with the material that is to be read later. By skimming, you can start to take note of the how the information is organized and where the key topics and discussions are normally introduced in the material. For some materials, you may just want to skim to the parts that contain the information you want. This is an important skill if you are reading just to search for the information for a research or looking for one fact, opinion to support your term paper. You can learn to scan parts of an article or reading material especially technical reading as there are certain areas that are relevant to you. Scanning works for materials that cover topics such as earth science, as these books normally have the phenomenal illustrated in accompanying pages and the words merely describe what is illustrated. 5) Learn to increase your peripheral vision By increasing the group of words you can 'capture' in one glance, you can increase your peripheral vision and increase your reading speed. If you are used to reading 5 words at one glance, imagine how much faster you can read if you can read 7-8 words at once. And the past tip is to practice until you are very familiar with all the techniques or until the habits become second-nature to you. Reading is an acquired skills and it took me almost 18 months to practice and master the speed reading techniques. After that, reading all the online articles have been a breeze. And if you can read fast, you can implement the strategies much faster than your competitors. And most people always say "time is money" so if you can read faster, you take action quicker and the time is equivalent to saving money as well. Article Source: EzineArticles.com/7178131

Read, Understand, and Remember! Improve your reading skills with the KWL Method
Is it difficult for you to understand or remember what you read? In this video, I will teach you an easy method that will help you become better at reading difficult material such as textbooks and journal articles. It is known as the "KWL" reading method. You will also remember more of what you read by using this method. If you plan to study at an English school, college, or university, this method will really help you. You can also use this method to help you in the IELTS and TOEFL exams. Try the KWL method yourself and tell me how it works for you in the comments! Take the quiz! https://www.engvid.com/kwl-reading-method/ TRANSCRIPT Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's video I am going to teach you how to be a better reader. So I want you to think about your life. Are there any things that are very difficult for you to read? Maybe you have to read something in English and you really don't understand what's happening in the story. Or maybe you're in university and you're taking a very hard course and you can't read the textbook because it's really difficult and you don't know what's happening. Well, if you're having difficulty reading or even if you just want to remember what you read more and be a better studier, this video is for you. So first let's look at some things students might be reading that might be causing difficulty. Some students in their universities they have to read textbooks. If you go to university or college, or also high school, you have to do a lot of reading and you have to do a lot of complicated reading, especially for sciences, maths, history. So, this is a very good method. I'm going to teach you how to read these books better. Newspapers. Sometimes you'll be reading the newspaper and it's difficult, especially in another language. So if you're reading a newspaper and, you know, you want to be better at reading it, this video is for you. Internet sources. There's a lot of great things on the internet to read, and so this will also help you if you look reading things from the internet. Magazines. Journals, for anyone who's a professional, whether you're a doctor, a nurse, a historian, or if you're in university or college, a lot of the times you have to read something called a journal, which is something for professionals to read about their field. So it's usually modern research. These things can be very difficult to read, so if you're reading these, this is a great technique for you. If you're doing the TOEFL or IELTS. Although I wouldn't recommend using this technique on the actual exam, I think it's great for your practice tests and I'll tell you why a bit later. So you can use this when you're practicing for the TOEFL and IELTS. And finally, if you're reading Shakespeare. When I read Shakespeare I had no idea what was going on. It was very confusing, all of the old English. I found it very difficult to read. There are also a lot of books that can be very, very hard to read. So these techniques will really work for you for any of these situations and many more. So before I teach you about the KWL technique, I just want you to think about reading for a second. Okay? A lot of people when they pick up a book, that's all they do. They open it up and they start reading right away, and then they close the book and then a lot of the times they don't really remember anything they read or they don't understand what they read. So it's a lot of wasted time. I like to think of reading how I think of jogging or running. So if we look here, I have the word "running" or "jogging". If you like exercise, any type of exercise kind of follows this format. So, reading is a lot like running. What a good reader does is they have a warm up period. So if you think about running, before you go running you usually stretch. Maybe you'll do a little bit of movement to get your heart pumped. So you don't just start running. You do a warm up. The same is true with reading. The best reading... The best readers usually do a warm up. For exercise, people then usually run or jog for a certain amount of time, and then afterwards they have what we call a cooldown period. So, "cooldown" is usually when somebody wants to slow their heartrate, so maybe they walk instead of run, maybe they do more stretches, but they don't just stop what they're doing. They slowly, you know, do slower activities before they stop jogging or running. So if you think about reading like exercise, you should also have a warm up, and then you read, and then the cooldown. This is the meat. This is the main idea of the KWL method, and I'm going to teach you exactly how we can do all of this when we read.

Speed Reading Tips
http://www.GoodGoodGuide.com/speed-reading -- How to Read Faster. If you are an average reader, you can increase your reading speed by using some scientific principles. You will improve your concentration and thus the ability to understand and remember better than you do now. Here is a technique in a nutshell: Forcing myself to read faster, although at first you lose some meaning. Read a group of words with a flash, rather than individual words. You can absorb the sentences, "see the tree" in one glance. Scheme when it was practical. Do not feel guilty spending the words are not important. Adjust your reading techniques for this type of book. If the light fiction, just as long as you get the wind through the plot. However, if a book of literary worth, you must read more slowly to get the full enjoyment and impact of the style and content. Do not be anxious and nervous, habit reduces your concentration power. Continue to build your vocabulary. More words that you understand completely and instantaneously, the faster you will read. To learn more, please visit: http://www.GoodGoodGuide.com/speed-reading

Exam skills: 6 tips to help you with reading exams
Time isn't always on your side! Reading English is often OK if you’ve got plenty of time to do it, but in a reading exam, it can seem as if time isn’t on your side! Watch this video to see our six top tips to help you with your reading exam - then afterwards test your understanding in our quiz. [Images: Getty Images] For more, visit our website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/course/english-you-need/unit-13/session-1 Transcript Rob Reading English is often OK if you’ve got plenty of time to do it, but in a reading exam, it can seem as if time isn’t on your side! Here's examiner Mark Shea… Mark Shea, Examiner The way most reading exams work is that you have a lot of reading to do and very little time to do it. Time is more important perhaps in reading than in any other paper. Rob So there's no time to waste in a reading exam but hopefully our top tips will not make your next exam feel like a sprint! The first thing to do is to familiarise yourself with the structure of the exam. Remember to do plenty of reading practice tests – preferably in timed conditions. And get feedback either from your teacher or by checking your answers with answer keys where possible. When you do the real exam, begin by reading the instructions carefully so you know exactly what you're required to do. One suggestion is to start with the reading section that you found easiest in the practice test - then you'll have time to focus on the sections you find most difficult. Other people suggest the opposite. You choose which way works for you. Just don't spend too much time on any one section – the clock is ticking! This is how one student approaches a reading exam… Student When the paper come, I read first the questions. I try to read the whole thing and try to construct how I answer those questions. Rob So it’s a good idea to read the questions before you read the texts, so you know what to look for. You could skim to find the main idea of a section of text or scan to find specific details such as key words, details, phrases or synonyms from the questions. Attempt to answer all the questions as long as there is no penalty for an incorrect answer. And make sure you leave some time at the end to check your answers. Good luck!
