In IELTS and Cambridge exams, you are required to read several texts of considerable total length. This can be a daunting task for students and you may feel that you don’t have time to read everything.
You’ve probably heard the terms skim reading and scan reading and are probably aware that these skills are important when answering questions on a text. But what is skim reading? Is it just reading quickly or trying to find specific words in a text?

In certain phrases in English, you can use “which” or “that” such as, “Monday is the day that/which I hate the most!” However, sometimes you can only use “which”. For example: “I’m from Moscow, which is the capital of Russia.”
The good news is that you can always use “which”, although most native English speakers prefer to use “that” whenever it’s possible. In this blog, we’re going to examine the grammar rules that govern the use of these annoying little words that cause so much confusion for students.
