1.定义猜词。即在该词后面有用冒号或者破折号，进行进一步解释说明的。比如......this is rather like placing a textbook on a wet sponge: the weight squeezes the water out, causing both water and sponge to settle lower. 通过冒号后的解释sponge的意思就更为清楚了。
4.根据common sense猜，当然，同学要记住，不能用common sense 来做T/F/NG的题，这是雅思阅读的大忌。
5.还有，有的词如果不影响你的阅读，那么就不要去管他什么意思了。做雅思阅读，Time is limited.一定要好好控制自己的时间。关于时间分配我也会在下面的博文中详细讲。
