On this page, you will practice reading in detail for IELTS. When you begin the video, you will see a question. The paragraph you have just seen on the previous page will appear on screen again briefly, just long enough for you to practice reading in detail. You have 5 seconds to read the questions before the paragraph appears. At the end of the video, you will see the correct answer.
You can read the full text below if you need to see it again, but we recommend watching the video so you are under time pressure!
BZP based drugs are said to enhance the experience of party-goers, but being relatively new, ignorance remains about the long-term psychological affects of use. However, supporters of the legal status of party pills argue that while they generate similar feelings to ecstasy in the user, they remain a safer alternative, adding that government research has indicated that 44.1% of BZP party pill users had stopped using illegal drugs altogether. Advocates of BZP in New Zealand state that while New Zealanders have consumed over 20 million BZP based pills, that there have been no deaths or permanent injuries related to its use, inviting opposers to contrast these statistics with illness and injury resulting from alcohol abuse. Specialists advise that further research is required in order to clarify unanswered questions and concerns prior to being able to close the discussion once and for all.
On the next page, we will look at the importance of prefixes in understanding the reading texts in IELTS.
