Welcome to the IELTS Reading Lessons!

Welcome to your lesson on how to get as high of a score as possible in the IELTS reading section. Work through these two videos, then practice the techniques with the exam simulations listed below.

Here are a few IELTS Reading Exams that you can practice with.

Regardless of if you are going to take the Academic or General version of the exam, remember that the procedures we are implementing are the same, even though there is slight difference in content. For this reason, it is recommended to work through both the General and Academic options below.
