1) How familiar are your learners with the kinds of VISUALS (e.g. summary/note/table/flow-chart/diagram) that they might have to complete in completions questions on IELTS?

2) Can they detect WHICH SECTION is talked about in the questions?

3) Can they recognize the same information expressed with words of a DIFFERENT word class, or recognize plural to singular or active to passive (or vice versa) transformations between text and the questions?

4) Do they get the WORD COUNT right?
