Hi Simon,

Thank you very much for introducing these reading passages and key words. It is very kind of you.

Thank you so much for sharing Simon! How can we train ourselves to find these key words in the passage accuratly as per questions mentioned?

Hi Simon and everyone...This may be off topic but I have a question regarding Cambridge 6, test 1, passage 1.

Question: By how much did some cyclists' performance improve at the 1996 Olympic Games?

Passage: "At the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996, these sliced as much as two per cent off cyclists' and rowers' time."

Correct Answer: 20%

I thought it's "2%". If someone came across to this same question and got the answer right...Please help me T.T Thanks...

Hello Jen,
the answer for this question is 2%
I also have this book and the answer key shows 2% as well.

Thank you so much for looking into this question, Tseng! I appreciate it..TY :-D


Here I'm sharing my experience in "TRUE, FALSE, and Not GIVEN" question.

(IELTS 5- TEST 3- Passage 1- Question No. 13):

Part of the passage:

The one factor that was found to affect the child's development was family stress leading to a poor quality of parent-child interactions. The interaction was not necessarily bad in poorer families.


- The richer families in 'Missuri' programme had higher stress level.




The fact that interaction in poorer families is not bad should not be interpreted that the rich families were worse in that. So the passage suggest no idea in this regard. I should note that my answer for this was TRUE, a terrible mistake actually!

I suggest that student share their mistake in reading part here, because I believe that only taking mistakes can improve our skill in Reading!
