Tired of studying all the time? Instead of binge-watching the latest sitcom online, why not try some reading for fun?
Starting this week, we present to you GREat Five-Minute Reads, curated and compiled by faculty members to ensure that you augment your critical reasoning skills by understanding complex sentence structures and recognizing tricky context clues.
Need more incentive? Well, these articles will also boost your comprehension of tough vocabulary: since the ETS opts for words that can be broadly used in many contexts across many academic disciplines, these words are almost non-existent in everyday conversations or TV scripts. This makes grasping the vocabulary in Reading Comprehension passages or Sentence Completion texts like tackling a behemoth. A simple solution? Read a lot to find out how these words behave in their “natural habitat”, so you can tame the leviathans easily!
This Week’s Reading List:
1] Dinosaurs weren’t the only ones!
3] Oh Mummy! Old Egyptians, New Curses!
4] From Socialite to Novelist: Edith Wharton’s journey
