Highway IELTS Reading Development Course:
The Reading module of the IELTS exam is a demanding test. It’s essential that you approach this test with the right mindset and the right strategies. The Highway IELTS Reading Development Course provides the tools to do this. If you have attended a Highway IELTS Workshop, or you have already fallen short of your desired score in IELTS reading, this course will help you to identify, and then build up, any weaknesses in your reading skills.
Upon enrollment, you will be assigned your own IELTS coach, who will guide you through the process. Your coach will arrange a face-to-face session with you, to review your progress through the course and discuss the way forward.
Reading is a challenging test for two main reasons. Firstly, the texts are long and complex. The sheer volume of material makes it difficult to read each text from beginning to end before tackling the questions. Secondly, the questions and instructions are highly specific and any deviation from these instructions will attract penalties. Throughout the test, and especially when transferring your answers to the answer sheet (or selecting your answers in the computer-based test), you need to be mindful of these instructions and make sure that every answer you give satisfies the requirements. Crucially, you need to make sure that each answer makes sense in its context, which might mean making minor modifications in parts of speech or spelling. To succeed in IELTS Reading, you need to understand all of these issues. The Reading Development course covers them all in detail. The course incorporates two modules:
- Introduction to essential reading skills, with detailed practical exercises and self-assessment rubrics
- Overview of IELTS reading question types, with guided practice and time-saving strategies
