Help with reading
English is not based on syllables
reading speed
read in groups
What does this mean?
Train your eyes to process groups of word rather then words separately.
When I write I try to get down some headings that seem to relate the the question. At least they give me an idea of what topics and divisions my writing should have.But I am not yet exactly sure If I have an argument. I start to write what i can under these headings and, as I go, I am trying to find a way of joining all these parts together. When i have got my first draft like this, I will go back and put in bits that will improve the links between the different parts. I any move some material around at this stage. Sometimes I have to cut out quite a lot because now that i am much clearer about my argument, I relise that not everything I originally thought was interesting is actually relevant or important. Gradually I fit the bits together to produce a
well-structured argument.
We look for the important word
write- verb
Idea- nouns
interesting- strong adj
Use them as if there was a comma after them
Use them to make groups
This reading represents an approach to writing an essay
Extensive reading: You try to find general information of a passage. Example question: What is the best title for this passage?
Intensive reading: You try to find the details of a specific information. Example question: What does "intensive" in line 5 mean?
Skimming: You try to gather the most important information as quickly as possible. You read from top to down of the text quickly and note important information.
Scanning: You try to find a particular piece of information. You read from top to down of the text quickly to find the specific information you need to answer questions
Practice reading techniques
scanning, skimming, intensive and extensive reading.
Tips when reading
Ok it is normal that you have doubts about a word !!!!
Never translate the whole sentence
Just translate the word in question
We think that the audit provided a reasonable basis for the opinion expressed.
