IELTS reading also has two versions - IELTS Academic reading and IELTS General Training reading. The subject matter of both the versions is different. Our team provides training to the aspirants in both the modules of writing. We provide the best IELTS Coaching in Subhash Nagar.
Candidates who seek admission in a foreign university need to appear for the academic reading test. They are provided with three reading assignments. These reading assignments may be extracts of articles from various books, journals, magazines and newspapers. Since these candidates are students and willing to study abroad for an undergraduate or a postgraduate course, they generally find these passages interesting, appropriate and comprehensible.
We make participants practice reading which is appropriate for the IELTS exam.Just the reading is not sufficient and hence we, simultaneously, train them to provide accurate answers. Poor spelling or grammar attract penalty and lead to low band scores and hence right from the beginning our trainers focus on helping students strengthen their grammar and spelling along with adopting an appropriate writing style for example narrative, descriptive or discursive/argumentative.
There could be a number of task types in academic reading. It may present question in the form of flow-chart completion, table completion, diagram label completion, sentence completion, note completion, identifying information, multiple choice questions (MCQs), matching information, Identifying the writer’s views/claims, matching headings, matching sentence endings, Summary completion, short-answer questions, matching features, etc.
General Training Reading
There are three sections in general training reading – social survival, workplace survival and general reading. Social survival, generally, contains two or three short texts; workplace survival comprises two texts; and general reading contains one long text.
The first section ‘social survival’ aims at testing whether a person would be able to survive in an English speaking social environment. Basic linguistic survival capabilities of a candidate are tested through this section by providing relevant text. To achieve the objective, general factual information - advertisements, notices, and timetables –is provided.
The second section ‘Workplace survival’ focuses on the workplace context. Hence it contains texts related to job descriptions, job advertisements, contracts, staff development and training materials.
The third section ‘general reading’ requires the candidates to comprehend an extended reading prose with a more complex writing structure. This section, instead of providing argumentative texts, contains descriptive and instructive ones. These passages are relevant to the wide range of people. These are generally the extracts of articles from newspapers, magazines and fictional and non-fictional book.
A variety of question types are asked in general training reading from MCQs to flow chart completion.
