Reading is just a complex task! I remember my experiences during my British and Literature classes that I had to analyze novels, short stories, poems and discriminate the figurative language and etc... in MY case doing that was so annoying for me . On the other hand, during that process, I realized that everytima I had to read, I used my dictionary... it really worked. Conclusion: Reading and using a Dictionary help you to increase and improve your vocabulary as well as your fluency reading English.

Morpheem is a new web site for English learners. It will have a new, short text per day, like a short story or a news text, with definitions and you can discuss with other learners. It is free and will start in a test period soon; you can sign up to be a tester: http://morpheem.com

Let's write something ... what should we read and why (newspaper, magazine, comics, book or poem ... etc) ? The advantages and disavantages? Should we read to catch the content only or should we write down all new words or something else? ...

Many of my students shy away from reading. Mostly because of all the new words they see which they feel threatened by. I tell them to read the whole paragraph first and write down any meaning they understood from the paragraph, then to circle all the new words they did not know.

I tell them to look for their meanings and see if the whole context / meaning of the paragraph changed. :)

Being native Portugese, I have been learning English very effective and in an interesting way via Skype on English courses,
If you doubts, you should try, indeed;)
I tried to learn English on busuu | Learn Spanish, French, English and other languages for free by myself, but I lacked some power of will. Now I’m studying at myenglishdom.com and everything seems to be fine. I can see the progress.
