Hi Simon,
can u clarify more how is orienttation is similar to induction

Thanks for the valuable tips.

Simon,

Thank you very much for this. I will never know some of these similar words without your lesson.

Hi Bishoy,

Both 'orientation' and 'induction' can mean a general introduction for new people e.g. new students or staff.

In the listening test above, it was about orientation / induction to the library i.e. a general introduction to how to use library facilities.

hello simon
i disagree with your yesterday's answers fale, not given, true and NOT GIVEN.
THE LAST ONE SHOULD BE FALSE, BECAUSE IN THE QUESTION WE HAVE PREDOMINANT AND IN THE TEXT WE HAVE SOMETIMES WHICH CONTRADICT EACH OTHER.
IF YOU ARE NOT AGREEING WITH ME, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. EVERY ONE IS WELCOME TO EXPRESS THERE OWN IDEA OR CORRECT ME.

YOUR STUDENT , NEE

NEE,

In the question it asks " its still the PREDOMINANT SCALE" ....while in the passage it describes ..."hurricane FORCE WINDS are ""sometimes ""described"...
If you look carefully it doesn't really mention anything about the SCALE...predominant or not, it describes SOMETIMES for HURRICANE FORCE WINDS.

Does that make sense to you?
Well, never mind mine is wrong too :(
I got confused( tricked) by ...SCALE WAS EXTENDED IN 1946, I thought it might be suggesting that since then it is more popular or PREDOMINANT SCALE.

So I ended up choosing TRUE for the fourth one. But now I realised that NG seems the best option.

Hira.
thanks for discussion.

i am pretty sure that NOT GIVEN is correct but i want to discuss with you and other people that why i fell false is correct and why i am wrong.

i have no doubt about simon answer but i want to discuss and i want to understand in full details.

Hi Nee,

Hira (above) is right. The information about hurricane description is not relevant enough - the question is about the Beaufort scale being the main / most used (predominant) scale for wind description (i.e. ALL wind description in general). We have no information about which scale is MAINLY used nowadays.

thanks a lot simon

Dear Dimon,

I've done all the reading tests in 10 Cambridge books and the IELTS offical website which I've found several pieces, not much.
I've also practised all things in your website.
How can I find more reading practice tests (academic) ?

Regards,
Sen
