    Talking about the IELTS

    It is true that the topic sentence should always be the first or the second sentence of a paragraph. However, when reading some ielts reading tests' paragraphs, im really confused since i can't find any general topics in the first or the second sentences. So can the topic be located anywhere other than the 1st and the 2nd sentence ? Thank you for your answer.

    Generally speaking, you should be able to work out the theme of paragraph in the first or second sentence. However, that's not always the case. Can you show us some examples of the paragraphs you're having difficulties with?
