Means to improve reading skill-

Font Size :

It is exceedingly important for students to improve their reading skills. Reading is one of the most important skill a student needs because, no matter which career they choose to pursue, they need to read well and read quickly.

Students must develop this skill before completing primary classes, as good reading will form an excellent foundation for better and faster learning process. If this foundation is not built strong in the primary classes then learning at higher grades would become more difficult, however it is still possible to develop this skill in higher classes provided only if working on it constantly and over a sustained period of time.

Anyone starting late (even after high school) to master this skill cannot just start to read fluently. They need to go through every stage by stage: first novice, beginner, intermediate and then advanced levels.

Finding some quiet time is highly important, because students and almost everyone these days are moving hither - thither in the most swiftest manner and or otherwise hyperactive

It is extremely imperative to maintain patience to progress from one stage to the other. Moreover, apart from putting in hours of reading practice, it will take months and years to read fast and fluently, as it is not overnight affair.       

Here are tips for students to build a solid reading foundation.

Reading materials: Read whatever interests you. It could be small news clipping or few lines of the things that interest you likes sports, adventure, fitness or amazing facts.

Once more opportunities are created to read, they will build their skills much faster, than they would if they only focus on reading during their literature classes.

It is important to be highly patient while going thorough initial phases. As for more number of days and hours spent, the understanding level will too low. Then as they progress understanding will improve and it’s to develop other parameters like pausing at punctuations, quick comprehension and speed of reading.    

Read aloud: It is good to read aloud to someone who can correct the right pronunciation and other mistakes. Next, listen to some sort of English news channel that you can follow.  Selecting the right channel is more important as some newsreaders are too fluent and swift for students in the initial phases to understand.

Difficult words: Mark down hard words and find out it’s meaning. 

Find out its usage in day-to-day life. But, use it with care. As sometimes, it will carry a different meaning and put you in trouble.   

Write: Initial phase students need to practice writing small assignments like a few quick sentences about their families, about a recent vacation or about their favorite subject.

Students in the intermediate and advanced stages should write essays in varied subjects ranging from one page to three to four pages.  

Casual reading: Apart from school literature, students should read some good books or magazines of their interest.

It is a simple truth. The more students read, the more reading standard will improve. Try to pick up material thats truly of personal interest, as that will drive them to read more.

Get enrolled in a library: Students make sure to enroll in a library and make it practice to go once in a week. When doing small or big project, students need make use of the opportunity to read about the entire assignment.

Books contain information that they need to learn, and the more they read and explore books, the better they will become.

Without improving reading skill, further learning process would certainly be tough.
