The criers wore special clothes.

A lot of people could read in those times.

They attracted people crying “look,look”.

The criers spread important news.

Nobody in London knew about the Great Fire.

There aren`t any criers nowadays in London.

How to do it

How to do it:

1. Read the questions and try to understand them.

Remember what it is you are looking for so you will not be distracted by other pieces of information

2.  Anticipate how the information looks – is it identified by numbers, proper nouns, etc.

3.  Read the texts running your eyes over several lines at one time. Don`t read every word. Mark key words or phrases.

4. Find which area each question refers to.

5.  When you find the information you are looking for, focus your eyes and attention there and read the entire sentence.

6. Divide time sensibly.
