ADVICE FOR 7–9 BAND SCORE

• Practice skimming a passage quickly to get a general impression of the main idea, instead of carefully reading each word and each sentence.
• Scan passages to find and highlight key facts (dates, numbers, and terms) and information.
• Practice regularly to increase reading rate.
• Focus on the content and flow of spoken material. Do not be distracted by the speaker’s style and delivery.
• Make a list of topics that are familiar, and practice speaking about them.
• Describe a familiar place or recollect personal experiences.
