|From the author: many teachers and books talk about skimming and scanning as key techniques for IELTS reading. But, here we refer to the words 'skimming' and 'scanning' as ‘finding’ in my lessons as they may seem confusing to students.|
In fact, IELTS reading is really a test of 2 things:
1. Can you find the part of the text that contains the answer?
2. Do you understand that part of the text?
So, forget 'skimming' and 'scanning' and focus on 'finding' and intensive reading as referred to 'understanding' here from now on.
1. Finding that is reading the text to find words from the question.
2. Understanding that is when you have found some key words from the question, read that part of the text carefully in order to understand it and get the right answer.
