Hi Medo
in my opinion 7 is true because:
because aspects of children’s cognitive
development.... may not be sufficiently advanced.
and also
And anyone who has tried to obtain even the most basic kind of data ...knows how frustrating this can be.

In 20 minutes, 19 of 20 questions were finished. Two clearly mistakes in question 6-9 I guess.

Sorry, I can't understand 8. Could you explain to me, please?

6 is true bcz it said that
"they" recorded in parental diaries

Hi Sir please help me i have been practicing reading from very long time but i am unable to complete the 3 sections fully in reading with in 60minutes time. please tell me what i suppose to do achieve success init.

HI, I want to check those:
6 NG
7 TRUE
8 FALSE
9 NG

Hi Simon , can you explain why question No.6 true? I couldn't understand

I confused with answer No.6 and No.8
No.6:
In the 19th century, researchers studied their own children’s language.

Explanation found the sentence of paragraph A:
especially towards the end of the 19th century, using data they recorded in parental diaries.

I cannot find meaning of researchers studied their own children's language.

I gave it "Not given".

No.8
Radio microphones are used because they enable researchers to communicate with a
number of children in different rooms.

Explanation found from the sentence of paragraph C:
using radio microphones, so that
the effects of having an investigator in the same room as the child can be
eliminated.

Paragraph C only mentions an investigator and a child both stay a room can be eliminated. But no any mention of different rooms if they could communicate with a number of children.

So I gave it "not given"

I don't know why I made mistakes

8 is False. There is no communication between researchers and children. The researchers only observe.

Can some one please explain how to find answer for question 10 to 14? I have started preparing for IELTS and having exams in 1 month time. I would like to know technique that used to find answer for these questions.

Your help on this much appreciated.

I find difficult to do

Bloody hell, this passage is not that easy to comprehend.

Even pre-linguistic infants have been
brought into the research:

Experimental research is therefore a slow,
painstaking business; i

The problems that have to be faced are quite different from those encountered when working with adults.

Children can be observed and
recorded through one-way-vision windows

A sample of a child’s
spontaneous use of language is recorded in familiar and comfortable
surroundings.

they recorded in parental diaries.

It is not possible to carry
out certain kinds of experiments, because aspects of children’s cognitive
development
8. FALSE

but it is not always easy to maintain good acoustic quality,
11. research centre
Alternatively, the recording can
be made in a research centre,

The other main approach is through experimentation, and the methods
of experimental psychology have been widely applied to child language
research.

Hi Simon, I have a question, is that possible for the paragraph heading one paragraph could be used to answer 2 question, for this case paragraph "C" was used twice to answer no. 1 and no. 4

Thank you Simon, I am studying ielts like crazy, I am going to take ielts test on Oct 25, and you website is really helpful for me.

Hi Fikriyah,

This wasn't a 'paragraph headings' exercise - it was a 'which paragraph contains the information?' exercise.

When you are asked to match paragraphs with headings, you will not use a heading more than once. However, when you are asked 'which paragraph contains the information?', you MIGHT find more than one answer in the same paragraph - in this case, you will use the same answer more than once.

I hope I've explained this clearly. It's a tricky one!
