IELTS Reading Tip

It is very likely that an IELTS Reading passage will contain specialised words, or other words you do not know. Often, you do not need to know what the word means in order to answer a question. Sometimes, you can guess what a technical word means by reading around it in the passage. Where this is not possible, the meaning of the word may be given in a footnote.
