Essential Reading For IELTS
Essential Reading for IELTS is a comprehensive preparation course for the IELTS Reading Module. It is designed to target a broad range of IELTS test-takers, from the pre-intermediate learners to those who have a higher level of proficiency. Essential Reading for IELTS develops both test-taking skills and language necessary for you to achieve an IELTS Reading score between 5.0 and 6.5.
Main features of Essential Reading for IELTS: Preparation and practice material is organised into three levels: Pre-intermediate, Intermediate and Upper-intermediate. The book consists of 22 units with 52 lessons. The units in each level are based on topics which frequently appear in the real test. There are 3 sections in every lesson:
Warm-up: This section often takes the form of a discussion question, an interesting proverb, or an anecdote to introduce contexts and motivate the learners.
Skill Focus: Essential reading skills, especially those specific to the IELTS test, are introduced through this section.
Main Reading Text: This section provides targeted practice exercises so that you can apply what you have learned in the previous section and develop the test-taking and language skills in focus. These exercises are very similar to real-test items in terms of question types and the level of difficulty.
