Reading is very beauitful

Postby chamodude » Wed Aug 31, 2005 9:09 pm

Reading is very very important.There are people who are not well used with having a reading--even in thier own mother language!--and obviously it may be a kind of nightmare for them.I guess,looking for a light theme,say showbiz magazines,could be the first approach toward William Shakespear. :)
you could well start with just one page,one day,then probabaly one page the next day,probably two pages the next day and son on.The idea is not to lose the interest in reading.

READING

THIS IS A VERY INTERISTING TOPIC BECAUSE I USUALLY TEND TO GET LOST IN THE READINGS. I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS BECAUSE SOMETIMES I DON'T UNDERSTAN ALL THE VOCABULARY OR BECAUSE MY READING COMPREHENSION IS NOT JUST GOOD. IF SOMEONE HAS A SIMILAR PROBLEM PLESE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU'VE DONE IN ORDER TO IMPROVE.

Hi!

I think your comprehension difficulties are due to your low vocabulary skills. If you're a beginner I suggest you to try to understand lyrics because they are shorter and you won't be tired of looking up a great deal of words and eventually give up reading, not to mention that by singing the related lyrics you will memorize the new words much faster. Also read short articles from magazines, newspaper and so on. Read it first in loud voice (I mean, loud enough for you to listen to your own voice), thereafter you look up the words you don't know. Then after sometime change gradually to longer articles, lyrics and this way you will have more vocabulary and thus, more understanding. If you're not a beginner and already make use of this suggestions the only further suggestion I give you is: read, read and read. Having more knowledge does not take space.

I do hope my suggestions can help you.
P.S. If you love English like I do please send me a private message so that we can chat.

Take care.

Virgil has some great advise there with the learning of songs and the rest too. I would learn songs of another language~ now, myself... to begin a language. What a great idea! I am going to try this. :D

I totally agree with you,emily.
I hope it's okay if I will just call you by that name.

"Practice makes perfect" is true , though I've been hearing it since birth. {-:
