このコーナーでは、IELTSの勉強法がわからないと感じている方に、お勧めの勉強法をご紹介します!
今回はリーディングのコツ その3!

「何を読んだら…?」

前回の秘訣では、もしIELTSの勉強中、または単に語彙力を伸ばそうとしているのであれば、興味のあるトピックを扱った記事を読むと良いということを要点として挙げました。これは本当なんです。言語の勉強は大変です!その上、つまらないことの読解に奮闘しなければならないとなるともっと大変ですから!

"What to read?"

The previous tip made the point that if you are studying for the IELTS test, or just trying to improve your vocabulary, you should read articles on topics that you are interested in. This makes so much sense. Studying a language is tough, and it only gets tougher if you have to struggle through boring information!

Below are links to a variety of websites with interesting articles. You may find some of them interesting. If not, keep looking. There are plenty of great websites out there. If you still can’t find anything, please ask your teacher next time you come in for a lesson.

BBC NEWS
GOOD
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC
ABC HEALTH & WELL-BEING
ESQUIRETIME
ROLLING STONE
COSMOPOLITAN
THE ECONOMIST
WIRED

When choosing an article to read, you should consider how long it is. If you want to simulate the IELTS test, then remember that the passages used in an IELTS test range from 600-1200 words. The average length is somewhere around 750 words. Choosing an interesting, appropriately-length article is the best way to improve your vocabulary and reading fluency - just be sure to record and review the new vocabulary. And, don’t forget to pay attention to the use of synonyms and paraphrases!
