Now I know a lot of you hate this question type. I don't blame you, so listen to my tips today and hopefully it'll clear some of this confusion up for you. First of all, most importantly, don't think too much, don't read too much, all right? Listen, if you think too much, if you stare at this question, if you stare at this passage for longer than a minute, you're gonna get the wrong answer. You're going to overthink it. You're gonna think yourself out of getting the right answer. Don't read too much either, you guys. You should not read more than two sentences to get this answer, all right? Reading too much not only wastes time, it does give you the wrong answer, all right? So what do we read? How much time do we need? That's where strategies come in. You have to have clear strategies, a system that you stick to every time you do these questions, okay? So for example, one of the most important part of one of the most important parts of the system is the matching. You identify key words in the question, you find these key words in the passage, and then you compare, again, no more than two sentences, guys. When you find these key words in the passage, read that sentence, also read the next sentence, 'kay? This is the only question type where I recommend reading two sentences. You read the two sentences, and then you compare it to the question. Make sure that all the key words match. Do they all match? Are they saying the same thing? It's true, or yes. Are they disagreeing? Is there an opposite in there? Then it's false, or no, 'kay? Is something in the question? Is the key idea in the question, not in those two sentences, then it's not given. Again here's where you can overthink it. If you think, oh well, God, well what if, what if it is given in the next sentence, and then you keep reading. You're wasting time. You're getting the wrong answer. Remember, guys, you're never going to be 100% sure when you try and find these answers. You're never gonna be 100% sure, all right? Take it from me, one of the students in our course, she just emailed me this morning, telling me she got a nine in reading by following my system step-by-step. It does work. If you are ready to get the complete system, not just the tips on these amazingly helpful YouTube videos, if you are ready for more, then check out our course allearsenglish.com/keys. All right, the last step after you practice this system, you learn the strategies, after you do that, the next step is you practice, practice, practice, okay? With as many true, false, not given, yes, no, not givens as you can. You will find IELTs has a certain way of phrasing things, certain things that disagree all the time. You will see repetitions, and you will be comfortable with this question type by the time exam day comes. All right, so that's it for me today. I hope I have cleared a little bit up for you guys. This is a confusing question type, but it's all about matching and being efficient with your time. All right, thanks for watching today, guys, and have a wonderful day.
