For students preparing to study abroad, the IELTS test is a threshold that must be crossed, so how long does it usually take to prepare for the test? Let Wetranstech answer that for you!
First, because most candidates prepare for IELTS by focusing more on their study methods, thus neglecting their time schedule.
For example, you saw the method of so-and-so god on Zhihu and thought it was great, so you spent a week or two to verify the feasibility of the method and whether it was suitable for yourself, but finally found that it was not suitable for you, what should you do at this time? Is it a different method or is it just a mistake? So Wetranstech's point has always been: other people's schedules can be studied and learned from, but the method must not be mindlessly copied.
It is recommended that you do not plan your schedule precisely to what you do every hour of the day, because the plan is not really able to catch up with the changes, if you arrange too fine, once disrupted, you have to take time from other places to make up for it, and finally repair the patch instead of making yourself very messy. Just make sure you know what you need to do every day, and leave some free time to summarize your daily gains.
In terms of reading questions, Wetranstech recommends a few practical small methods that can give you a reference.
First of all, each type of question must be treated differently, reading questions are mainly divided into fill-in-the-blank, judgment questions, single-choice matching questions, etc., and the method of doing each type of question is different. For example, judgment questions and multiple-choice questions should be drawn in the question stem to locate the word and find the answer in the original text.
Every day, you should choose the article with the lowest correct rate as intensive reading. The importance of intensive reading is overlooked in many test preparation strategies, but it is often the most critical! The test points of reading mainly contain vocabulary, grammar, analysis of long and difficult sentences and logical understanding of the whole article. Therefore, when doing intensive reading, the first thing to do is to organize the vocabulary (especially adverbs, adjectives and verbs).
The same sentence pattern will appear in different articles, so you can deal with the logic of different articles if you can understand the sentence pattern. Most of the answers are hidden in the long and difficult sentences, so it is especially important to learn to analyze the reference and omission.
Finally, when practicing, you must time, this point should not need to say more, usually self-discipline some exams in order not to panic, this is from the elementary school teachers have repeatedly told us something, so practice when the phone is temporarily sealed!
The above are the preparation tips that Wetranstech has compiled for you, I hope they will be helpful.
