Monthly English Corner & Weekly Quote

  • June English Corner

    Here’s a tip to help improve your reading comprehension. When reading an article or chapter in a book, first read the first and last paragraphs. Then go to each of the subsequent paragraphs and just read the first sentence. Then skim or read quickly through the entire article. This will help you to get ahold of the main ideas and thereby greatly improve your comprehension. Understand the main idea; when reading, it is not necessary to understand all of the new vocabulary words. When many internationals read, they translate every word they don’t understand in a passage. This is known as the Grammar/Translation method and it’s an ineffective way of learning which takes far too much time. Try out the reading method I’ve just described, and I’ll see you next time at the English Corner.  © Mark Peter, M.A. Used with permission.
