Tips for English reading comprehension tests
- Practice reading every day. You should read different topics to improve your vocabulary.
- Make a note of any new words you come across and learn them.
- Try to answer all the questions.
- After you've answered all of the questions, check the key and read the passage again to find out the mistake you made and to deeply understand the passage you have read.
Reading techniques include: scanning, skimming, intensive reading, and extensive reading.
+ Scanning: You try to find a particular piece of information. You read from top to down of the text quickly to find the specific information you need to answer questions.
+ Skimming: You try to gather the most important information as quickly as possible. You read from top to bottom of the text quickly and note important information.
+ Intensive reading: You try to find the details of a specific information. Example question: What does "intensive" in line 5 mean?
+ Extensive reading: You try to find general information of a passage. Example question: What is the best title for this passage?
