This course will give you an insight into the OET Reading sub-test and will guide you through it step-by-step. Each sub-section is worked on individually, with parts A, B, and C looked at in turn.

Stage 1

In the first stage for each of the 3 reading parts, the teacher will talk you through how to understand the texts efficiently and effectively. We’re not worried about time at this stage; just skill-building and technique-development - both aspects which are instrumental to scoring well on test day.

  • Practise test-taking techniques such as

    • skimming and scanning

    • activating schema

    • top-down and bottom-up skills

    • intensive reading and

    • critical thinking

  • Learn:

    • how to anticipate the type of answer required

    • how to avoid distractors

    • how to differentiate between main and supporting ideas

    • how to understand gist and global meanings

Stage 2

In Stage Two you’ll get some guidance to point you in the right direction, but you’ll be timed and get a chance to answer the questions yourself before going through the answers with the teacher.

Stage 3

Stage Three - and it’s over to you. Download the test and answer the questions under exam conditions by yourself. Check the answers and see how you’ve scored.

Extra Resources

There’s also a language library with handy vocabulary guides and learner-training guidance for further study.

Thanks for finding out more about us, and we look forward to seeing you soon on our course.

Too little content covered. Good enough for one days effort. There should have been more resources in terms of practice tests for reading comprehension.

not up to now as I understand skimming and scanning, however, there are no different techniques being told in these videos
