IELTS Reading Lesson: Death of the High Street

A 2019 IELTS lesson 🙂 A reading exercise for matching headings practice about the “Death of the High Street”. This is an easy lesson to help you develop confidence. There are two exercises in this lesson.

  1. Exercise 1 = Matching Headings
  2. Exercise 2 = Synonyms (Vocabulary practice)

Death of the High Street: Reading for IELTS

Exercise 1: Matching Headings

Questions 1-5. Match the heading with the relevant paragraph below. Write a letter for each answer.

  1.  Changing Tastes
  2.  Rising Overheads
  3. Squeezed Incomes
  4. Too Much Debt
  5. E-commerce

A) A big factor has been a fall in discretionary spending, spurred by rising shop prices and weak wage growth. A near 15% fall in the pound since the Brexit vote has pushed inflation over 3% – way above the Bank of England’s 2% target. This has made imported goods more expensive, with those costs passed on to consumers. Couple that with the fact that wages have been rising at a slower pace than inflation – and shoppers have less disposable income to spend in stores and restaurants.

B) Online giants such as Amazon have had a huge impact on the high street as more consumers see online shopping as cheaper and easier than going to the shops. And while overall retail sales growth is weak, online sales continue to shoot up. If shops fail to do either “value, convenience, or experience” well, they will struggle, Mr Martin says.

C) Toy store “Toys R Us” fell short in all three areas, according to Simon Thomas of Moorfields Advisory, the toy chain’s administrators. He says it was “unlikely” the retailer can be saved because its business model “isn’t what consumers really want now”. “We’ve got very large stores which are fairly impersonal. People are looking now to have a better shopping experience, and we were unable to deliver that.”

D) Inflation is not the only cost pressure retailers face. The National Minimum Wage and new National Living Wage for over-25s go up each year, pushing up payroll costs. “Business rates are deterring investment in local communities, causing shop closures and job losses in hard-pressed communities and preventing retailers from delivering what their customers want in an efficient and cost-effective way.”

E) As a consequence of over expansion, many retailers are shouldering “high debt burdens”, says KPMG’s Mr Martin. Just before its collapse, Toys R Us UK faced a looming VAT debt payment deadline of £15m. It would have been unable to pay it without a cash injection from an outside investor.

Please remember that in the real IELTS test, if you are asked to write a letter, you must write the letter and not the word. Always following instructions very carefully.

  1. A = 3
  2. B = 5
  3. C = 1
  4. D = 2
  5. E = 4
  6. triggered = spurred
  7. combine = couple that
  8. expendable = disposable
  9. soar = shoot up
  10. discouraging = deterring
  11. imminent = looming
  12. boost = injection

Hope you find the lesson useful 🙂

    I appreciate this site and advocate for more lectures.

    • There are over 300 pages of free lessons and tips on my site. Go to the HOME page and read how to find them.

  2. Hello Liz,
    Please is it possible to post my practice answer to the writing tasks here for your review and feedback?

  3. Munzar baig says

    Iam strugling for 7 bands. Iam low in all modules. Kindly give me tips or tricks,how can i improve . I need 7 bands.

    • Tips and tricks will not give you band 7. Understanding IELTS fully and having excellent English will get you band 7. So, this means you need to review your English thoroughly and review all 300 pages of IELTS information and lessons on this site.

      • Uchechukwu Florence Onwuli says

        Please how do i find the 300 pages of ielts information and lessons on the site.

        • Can you see the RED BAR at the top of the website? Use it. It is called a Navigation Bar and it allows you to access the main pages with over 300 links.

  4. I need tips and strategies for reading Liz, pls help me.

    • Did you check the main reading page with all my tips and lessons? The main pages are accessed through the RED BAR at the top of the website. Click on “reading” on the RED BAR.

  5. Omojola John says

    Thanks for your efforts and contributions to our knowledge Liz. You are such a unique mentor.

  6. Thank you very much for your useful post and readiness to help to improving our bands.

    Observation: (in section 2)
    – The answers come in chronological order and apparently distributed in d 5 passages

    Question: (section 1)
    – Please, I used to think that the “headings” most times can easily be gotten from the first sentence in a paragraph, however, that wasn’t the case here, please can you explain more on better and faster methods, since reading is all about being fast.
    Thank you!

    • Whoever told you that you only need to read the first lines of a paragraph to choose a heading has lied to you. That is 100% false. You need to understand the whole aim of the paragraph which might not reveal itself until the last sentence. You need full understanding for matching headings. The above reading was not difficult for matching headings. Have you done real IELTS tests? Did you buy the Cambridge IELTS test books to practice from? I suggest you do that very soon.
