  • hello everyone, welcome to my channel

  • I am Dori I am a teacher of English

  • and in today's video, we will talk about matching tasks

  • in IELTS Reading. So, there are two types

  • of matching tasks: matching names

  • titles, ideas, matching names basically,

  • and matching headings

  • So, let's begin with the first one

  • matching names task. In this task,

  • you're going to get a number of statements and you have to match

  • these statements with a number of options that you are going to get

  • in a box. These options are basically names or titles or ideas

  • expressed in the text. As always, the options

  • are going to be more than you need. Ok, now let's go and

  • have a look at one of these tasks. Ok,

  • Here, we can see a "matching names"

  • task. You have to match the questions

  • the statements from 1 - 5 over here

  • these are the statements 1 - 5

  • with the ideas or names

  • in the box from A - G.

  • Ok, you can see that over here

  • These are the names or ideas in the box. So, the statements are going to be

  • paraphrased

  • these statements over here, so try to locate their meanings in the text and not

  • their exact

  • same words. Another thing you can do that would help

  • is to scan where exactly in the text each name or idea

  • over here from A - G

  • appears and read this information carefully

  • and then decide which of the statements match

  • this information in the text.

  • Ok, now about "matching headings".

  • Some of you have already told me that you tend to make more mistakes

  • in this kind of task: matching headings. Basically, you have to match

  • each paragraph of the reading passage

  • with a heading and the headings are going to be more than you need and this is what

  • makes this task a little bit more difficult

  • or demanding. Ok, let's go and have a look at a "matching headings"

  • task and let's hope that this will help you a little bit more.

  • So, again there will be more options than you need

  • as you can see here and this is what makes this task

  • pretty difficult. So, the options are going to be similar in meanings

  • so you have to be able to recognize the heading

  • that best represents the overall content

  • of each paragraph; the gist of each paragraph as a whole

  • and not just one sentence or two in it. So, sometimes a heading

  • from over here--as you can see

  • they all talk about sources of energy more or less--so

  • sometimes a heading may use the same words

  • as mentioned in the text but doesn't refer

  • to the main theme of the whole paragraph. It is mentioned,

  • the words are mentioned, by the way, in 1 or 2 lines

  • not as a main theme of the discussion so

  • in this task scan the whole paragraph but

  • pay attention to the details in the headings for example

  • let's take this heading over here

  • "Thermal energy in agriculture"

  • okay the whole paragraph

  • now should describe clearly, without any doubt or confusion,

  • thermal energy and its use

  • in agriculture. If the paragraph mentions briefly

  • "agriculture" for example, then

  • this might not be the correct heading. So,

  • always always always pay attention to the main discussion

  • of the paragraph; the main theme of the paragraph

  • don't let the usage of same words both in the text

  • and in the headings confuse you: don't let that confuse you

  • always concentrate on what the paragraph as a whole is about

  • ok? So, ask me your questions here in the comment section

  • or in facebook, twitter, and google+, I have added all links down

  • below in the description box thank you very much for watching

  • Good luck with your exam!
