So he decided to hold the boy back a year . 4. Standards in the country have improved in reading… over the past decade because its teachers are trusted to do whatever it takes to turn young lives around . 5. ‘I took Besart on that year as my private student ,’ explains Louhivuori. 6.

Giải thích chi tiết

Skimming/ scanning cross Nếu chỉ skim/scan từ khoá giống nhau giữa đoạn văn và list of headings, thí sinh rất dễ bị rối vì dường như heading nào cũng na ná nhau, cũng nhắc tới “education"  => Không biết phải chọn heading nào.

i A business-model approach to education

ii The reforms that improved education in Finland

iii Educational challenges of the future

iv Ways in which equality is maintained in the Finnish education system

vii Statistical proof of education success

ix The impact of the education system on Finland’s economy

Linearthinking check Để làm đúng Matching Heading, cần áp dụng Linearthinking qua hai bước Simplify + Read Connection Simplify + Read connection (1) The principal tried something extreme (2) - (6) Giải thích rõ hơn việc principal làm để giúp cậu học sinh đang falling behind (không theo kịp lớp) (7) Kết quả việc làm này: He conquered (= mastered) the language + He could learn => Main idea: A method used by the principal which helped a young learner.

So với list of heading:

Chọn heading vi. An approach that helped a young learner smiley18
