The Importance of Reading Ability and How to Develop It
As the most frequently used way to get access to the original material, reading has always been considered one of the most important parts of language learning.
This explains why reading skills should be highly emphasized.
Then how to improve our reading skills? First of all, scan the material before we begin.
Whatever the purpose of our reading is, take a few minutes to look the piece over to check and see how the work is structured and presented.
Secondly, try not to reach for the dictionary when we come to a word we don’t know.
Instead, try to guess the meaning of the word based on the context.
Last but not least, write a few sentences to summarize what we’ve read since it is a way of checking that we understand what we’re reading.
Above all, reading has important benefits and can help us learn the language faster and more completely, which encourages each language learner to develop their reading skills as suggested.
