Hi Linh,

Apart from what I suggested in the lesson above, the best advice is just to keep practising! Don't write "take me an example".

Hi Ryan,

No, that's not always the case unfortunately. You might need to read the whole paragraph in some cases.

Dear Simon,

Thank you so much for your help.

Thank you so much Mr Simon for your help

Hi Simon,

I've gone through almost all the reading lessons you've posted.I'm mainly bothered with the False or Not Given type questions, and I think most students are.
Can you give a lesson on this type of questions?

Thanks!

I have wondered on this question, please help me answer it. T/F/NG "Knowledge structures in adults decrease with age". And the sentence that I think most related to that question is "Additional research from developmental and gerontological perspectives has also shown that various aspects of adult intellectual functioning are greatly determined by knowledge structures and less influenced by the kinds of process measures which have been shown to decline with age over adult development"
Sorry if I posted on wrong topic. Thank you!

I posted on wrong topic. Thank you.

Dear Simon,
For the 2nd type of questions, shoud i start with reading specific information or paragraph? Tks!

A method that helped me a lot to answer these types of questions is reading each paragraph one by one and choosing the best title/topic from the list. If you go the other way you have to read all paragraphs for first title/topic and all but one for second and ...
But using this method only one time you read the paragraph.
This can also be applied to multiple choice topic matches.
Hope this helps.
