Want to earn $50 USD per month - EVERY MONTH - just for referring us?

We offer the option for a school or institution to become a subdomain partner, where they have a copy of ALL the resources on our site but on their own domain name (e.g. 'ielts.yourschool-or-company.com'). Every month that school or institution remains a partner, you generate a $50 USD commission - and you don't need to do anything! You earn $50 USD per month for each subdomain partner that signs up with us, so you can generate passive income with very little work! Find out more here

This section of our free course looks at how to improve your reading for IELTS by applying skills to help you read faster, understand more quickly and to ‘unlearn’ techniques that are costing you points. We will look at essential aspects like skimming and scanning, parallel expressions and the importance of qualifying words.

There are full length reading texts to help you improve your skills. The practice exercises are automatically graded with full feedback, but if there’s anything that isn’t clear, then just let us know in the comments section at the bottom of each page.
