Have you noticed that IELTS learners may jump to wrong conclusion and lose precious points if they stop scanning text too soon?

This is because the EVIDENCE for a question might appear in a text LATER than they would expect.

I called this problem ‘Delayed Negation’ in my book, How to Teach IELTS Reading, and give you some tips, as well as some practical EXERCISES to use with your students to tackle it.

Do your IELTS learners sometimes decide ‘too soon’?
