<ol><li> 1. How to Improve Your Reading Skills Made by Vanessa Atiencia Taken from </li><li> 2. Go to the library and pick up lots of books. Pick books depending on your reading level, no matter what your age. Choose interesting and easily read books such as comic books, as well as reading books containing formal words. Reading is about enjoying the experience too. Begin your reading by looking at the pictures, or listening to the music to get a feel for what you are going to be reading about. </li><li> 3. Start with titles, names, or other larger print items that you may know or ever thought about. Read the page carefully. Don't rush, take your time. Most people think that skimming the page(skimming means to just scan the whole page and hardly take in a couple of words)is a way of fast reading, but this is definitely not true.Go through the details to comprehend the text as you read it. Have an idea what you're reading about, not just reading and forgetting or failing to grasp the contents. </li><li> 4. Sound out each letter as best you can and you will notice they form some sort of word. Some letters fit together. For example, "th" is not pronounced as t + h, but rather as one unit. This is called a 'phoneme'. Pay attention to the stresses in words. Listen to audio books and follow the text at the same time. This can aid good pronunciation and word recognition. Read as much as you are able. When you start getting bored or need a break, take one. Reading should be fun and enjoyable, don't force it. After your break, return to where you were, and continue. </li></ol>
