This lesson comes from a request by Aditya from Maharashtra, India. Aditya says he is preparing for a competitive exam and he has to do reading comprehension exercises as part of the exam, and he wants to know the best way to do these. Before we start, if you want to request a lesson, just leave a comment. In your comment, tell me your name, and I will mention you in the video. OK, in this lesson I will give you some important tips and strategies for reading comprehension exercises. I will give you a reading plan that you can follow, and there are exercises in this lesson for you to practice. Alright, now my teaching experience is mostly with exams like the IELTS and TOEFL, but the tips that I give you in this lesson will help you in any exam situation. So the first thing is: when it comes to reading in an exam, budget your time. That means: you should know how many reading passages there are in the exam, how many exercises there are and how much time you have. In the IELTS exam, for example, there are three reading passages and you have one hour to do all of them. So then divide your time amongst those passages – for IELTS, you might spend roughly 20 minutes per passage. In some exams, one passage might be shorter or easier, and another passage might be longer or more difficult. In that case, obviously, you should plan to spend less time on the short passage, and more time on the long passage. And you should time yourself – if you are allowed to wear a watch in your exam, look at your watch and keep track of the time. If you plan for 20 minutes per passage, stick to that plan. Now, if you’re not allowed to wear a watch, then use the clock in the room or hall, or ask the invigilators how much time you have left. Alright, that’s the first thing: budgeting your time. So now the exam starts – and you have the first reading passage in front of you – what do you do? Well, I’ll tell you what you should NOT do – don’t start at the beginning and read slowly to the finish. Many students do this – and the problem is that when you get to the end, you will have forgotten a lot of the details in the middle, and when you read the questions, you have to go back and read the passage again to find the answers. Instead, here’s the plan that you should follow: your first step in reading should be to skim the passage. What does that mean? Well, skimming is actually something that we do with milk. It’s when you heat or boil milk, and the fat rises to the top in the form of cream. Removing that layer of fat is called skimming. When it comes to reading, skimming means to read the surface of the text quickly to understand the overall message. So if there’s a heading or title to the passage, and if there are subheadings, read all of these first. They will tell you the subject of the text. Then read the first sentence of each paragraph – they will give you a good idea of the overall message. Let’s practice this. You see two paragraphs on the screen, but only the first sentence in each paragraph is visible. Stop the video, read the sentences and try to understand the main topic in each paragraph. Alright, so what do you think the topic of the whole passage might be? It could be the negative effects of social media on children. What about the first paragraph? What is it about? Well it says that using social media can affect a child’s writing skills. And the second paragraph? It says that some people don’t agree with this – that is, the first paragraph – for two reasons: scientific reasons and practical reasons (pragmatic).

Read, Understand, and Remember! Improve your reading skills with the KWL Method
 
11:54
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.
GRE Reading Comprehension | PrepScholar's Master Guide
 
15:34
If you've been studying for the GRE, you're familiar with Reading Comprehension questions. Reading Comprehension questions make up about one half of the questions on the Verbal section. Each question is based on a passage. While some questions get their own passage, this isn't always the case — each passage may be paired with up to 6 questions, giving about 10 passages in total on the test. Passages with fewer associated questions will be shorter, often 1 paragraph in length, while passages with more associated questions may be several paragraphs long. The questions themselves may be multiple choice questions with 5 answer choices where only 1 answer choice is correct, multiple choice questions with 3 answer choices where between 1 and 3 answer choices are correct, and select-in-passage questions where you can select one sentence from the passage that correctly answers the question. A common piece of advice floating around is to read the question on the screen before reading the passage — that way you can look for the answer while you're reading. If you're on a passage with exactly one question associated with it, that's great advice! However, if we're on a passage with multiple questions, this is actually an actively harmful strategy. Why is this? When we read the passage looking for the answer to a specific, we don't pay attention to other key elements in the passage. This means that when the next question comes up, it's likely to be about one of the elements we didn't pay attention to, and we aren't ready for it. This forces us to read through the passage again and again for each question. This slows us down *and* disadvantages us on general questions, which require a broader understanding of the passage as a whole and aren't easy to read for quickly. So for each passage, look for the little bar above the passage that says which questions are based on the passage. If the bar tells you that only one question is based on the passage, go ahead and read the question stem first — but not the answer choices (more on that later). If the bar tells you that two or more questions are based on the passage, read the passage before looking at the first question. But how do we read the passage? Well, if we've got a one-question passage, we can go ahead and read for the answer, varying how we read based on what the question is. But what about for a multiple-question passage, especially one with several paragraphs? For these passages, we want to skim.

IELTS – 3 Reading Strategies
 
16:51
Is the IELTS Reading section very challenging for you? Can't finish all the readings and questions before the time is up? In this lesson, you will learn three approaches to the IELTS Reading section and their pros and cons. The goal of this lesson is to help you finish the test on time without compromising your understanding of the readings. Learn how to read less while answering more questions correctly. After watching, make sure to do the quiz to test your understanding. Good luck on your test! https://www.engvid.com/ielts-3-reading-strategies/ https://www.GoodLuckIELTS.com/ https://www.writetotop.com/ WATCH NEXT IELTS Writing: The 3 Essay Types https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ-Vyqxn1To TRANSCRIPT Hi again. 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.

GMAT Tuesday: Reading Comprehension Strategies
 
06:37
This week, I cover a very popular and common topic—Reading Comprehension strategies. The video covers 6 tips plus a bonus tip to help you on your way to dominating this question type. Tip # 1 - Know the question types! This way, you can develop a strategy for each of these. Tip # 2 - Look for wrong answers, and eliminate them. If you do this instead of looking for the right answer directly, the process will be much easier. Tip # 3 - Map, don't memorize. You really want to understand the passage, and know what information is where. Tip # 4 - Take notes. Your notes should include the main idea, structure, and the author's tone. Tip # 5 - Before you read the passage, glance at the first question about the passage. This way you'll get a sense of what the question is asking, and you can look out for that as you read the passage. Experiment with this; if it doesn't work for you, you don't need to do it. Tip # 6 - Read as much as you can! The more you read, the more you'll build your reading comprehension skills, and the better you'll do on Reading Comprehension questions. You should read every day! Bonus tip - Cultivate curiosity! If you can approach the passages as something unique that you can learn from, you'll do better on the test! :) We have a lot of resources that cover these tips in much more detail. I recommend that you take the time to go through all the resources below after watching the video: -Strategies for Reading Comprehension Questions: http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/strategies-for-the-6-reading-comprehension-question-types/ -Eliminating Wrong Answers: http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-rc-eliminating-wrong-answers/ -Map—Don’t Memorize: http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-reading-comprehension-technique-read-carefully-once/ Check out hundreds of practice questions and video lessons to help you prep for the GMAT at http://gmat.magoosh.com

#1 GMAT Reading Comprehension Trick: How to Avoid Trap Answers
 
04:36
Get tutoring from Erika or another PrepScholar GMAT expert: https://goo.gl/zLSvm7 Find out more about our online program: https://goo.gl/fiLCnu Check out our blog: https://goo.gl/CEjnYF In "#1 GMAT Reading Comprehension Trick: How to Avoid Trap Answers", Erika John from PrepScholar GMAT explains the best way to avoid getting stuck in wrong answer traps on Reading Comprehension GMAT questions. Wrong answer choices on Reading Comprehension GMAT questions are designed to include words, phrases, and ideas from the passage. This means that many wrong answer choices look right, since we can find "evidence" for them in the text. We can only successfully eliminate the answer if we are careful to read and understand the context of the related portion of the passage, which is 1) easy to mess up and 2) tremendously time consuming. To bypass these wrong answer traps altogether, we can use one of the most valuable GMAT Reading Comprehension tips: make a prediction before looking at the answer choices. This means that before we start eliminating answer choices, we should spend time attempting to answer the question in our own words based on information from the passage. If we make a solid prediction, the correct answer choice will often be immediately apparent, as it will match our prediction perfectly. In the case that the correct answer isn't immediately obvious, we'll still be able to eliminate most (if not all) of the wrong answer traps for not matching our prediction, increasing our accuracy and saving us time. Used in conjunction with the GMAT Reading Comprehension tips from our GMAT Reading Comprehension Question Types video (check it out here if you haven't already: https://youtu.be/U5Sl4PxW7Tw ), making predictions can transform your performance on the Reading Comprehension section. Making predictions is also a valuable strategy on the Critical Reasoning section, where wrong answers are often closely related to the wrong part of the passage.

10 Tips to Improve Your Reading Comprehension
 
12:46
10 Tips to Improve Your Reading Comprehension 1. "Never read a book without a pen in your hand." ~ Benjamin Franklin - That's great advice whether you write in your books or take notes in a notebook. Personally, I write, scribble, highlight, argue and draw symbols in all my books. 2. Read a whole paragraph / section BEFORE you stop to highlight or take a note. Don't stop right when you see something interesting; keep reading to get the "big picture" or context of what stood out to you. Then "reread" when you make your notes. 3. Read important sections out loud. A person reads much slower when you read out loud than when you read silently, but studies show that if you read out loud, you tend to retain things better because you're engaging multiple senses (hearing and seeing). 4. Read silently with quick "check-marks." There are times when you should read silently and simply use a pencil to "check" sections in the margins you want to go back and reread later. This will help you get through a book quicker without being distracted by stopping to highlight or write. 5. Explain what you read. When you finish a chapter / section of a book, take a break and "think" about what you've read and, in your mind, "explain it" to someone. See if you can structure your thoughts so as to be able to repeat back to someone what you've read. This is a great exercise. I do this A LOT when I read - and actually "talk through it" out loud to myself walking around my office or in the car. 6. Learn to "X-ray" a book by reviewing the Table of Contents and only reading the sections / chapters that will be benefit you. And don't feel like you have to read an entire book. 7. Pay attention to summary words - "therefore" or "as a result" or "in conclusion." When you see a summary / conclusion word, make sure you understand the author's points and argument that has led to his conclusion. 8. Circle / Underline key words in a sentence. 9. Mark words you don't know - and look them up! If you have a Kindle this is much easier. Looking up words you don't know increases your understanding of the author's intent, but it also increases your vocabulary! 10. You should read How to Read a Book by Mortimer Adler and Charles Van Doren. This is a "must read" book! You can get a great price on it at Amazon or WTSBooks.com.

GMAT Verbal Tutorials: 3 Rules to Ace the Reading Comprehension
 
05:24
Reading Comprehension is one of the three types of questions we will see in the Verbal section. In these types of questions, we will be presented with a short academic passage, two or three paragraphs long, and will be asked 3 or 4 consecutive questions about it. We should expect to see about 4 passages in each Verbal section, making for about 12-16 questions out of a total of 37. These questions are the only ones on the GMAT which are not adaptive - once we get a passage, the questions that come with it are set and won’t change according to our performance. However, the passages themselves, as a whole, are adaptive - the ones you see will depend on how you are doing on the test up till that point. So, what do we need in order to succeed in this type of question? Three things are needed for success: 1) Quick reading 2) Speedy analysis 3) Time-saving problem-solving strategy

GRE Reading Passage Strategy - Technique 1: Simplify the Sentences
 
28:54
This is the first in a series of videos highlighting GRE reading passage strategy for the Verbal section of the exam. This video is my attempt to be more organized and give you guys something you can follow from 'start to finish.' Thanks to my good friend Merin for the suggestion. This video details the 'simplify the sentences' strategy for reading passages. In the research-based passages, most of the information you're given is actually quite useless. Moreover, it is written in an overly complex style that can be simplified to its core components. With this strategy, it is much easier to understand the author's main points and thus much easier to answer the questions. If you have any questions for me, you can email me at [email protected] These reading passages are taken from the ETS free published paper-based practice booklet.

WWC Recommendation: Teach students how to use reading comprehension strategies
 
05:28
Good readers use many forms of thinking and analyzing text as they read. It is therefore important to teach beginning readers strategies for constructing meaning from text. A strategy is the intentional application of a cognitive routine by a reader before, during, or after reading a text. Comprehension strategies help readers enhance their understanding, overcome difficulties in comprehending text, and compensate for weak or imperfect knowledge related to the text. The strategies may be taught one by one or in combination. Both approaches can improve reading comprehension, so the panel recommends that teachers choose the approach they are most comfortable with in the classroom. This is recommendation is from the What Works Clearinghouse's Improving Reading Comprehension in Kindergarten Through 3rd Grade. Students who read with understanding at an early age gain access to a broader range of texts, knowledge, and educational opportunities, making early reading comprehension instruction particularly critical. This guide recommends five specific steps that teachers, reading coaches, and principals can take to successfully improve reading comprehension for young readers.
