dear experts,

I got a Magoosh suggestion that reading Economist is a good way to improve GMAT verbal.

as a non-native speaker. I tried it.
I hope I can get more suggestions when read Economist.

-- what the key to read it? the sentence construction? the idiom? the terminology? the logic of the article?
-- if I fail to understand the paragraph, read it again or check the translation before reading it again?

thanks a lot

have a nice weekends

Well you can practice it for RC and SC. For SC, you can understand the sentence structure and which modifies which sentence and check SV pair and parallelism. For rc you can do a timely exercise and write the main idea and how the author arrived at the section headings for each passage.

You could use it just to get (general) reading practice. Try to understand what they're trying to say. Sentence construction is something that you can use actual GMAT material for.

I'm not sure whether you want to use translation tools (if that's your approach) here. They're probably not accurate enough to be reliable.

Dear zoezhuyan
I'm happy to respond.

The Economist and the WSJ and the NY Times are all reasonably good sources. I wouldn't say that every last sentence in them is up to rigorous GMAT SC standards, but most of them are, and these sources provide good basic practice for all sections of the GMAT Verbal Section.

For advice about how to use reading from these sources to practice each of the GMAT Verbal question types, see:
How to Improve Your GMAT Verbal Score

Let me know if you have any questions, my friend.

Mike
