Good point to be discussed...
One exercise I give to my students
This is just one of the exercises I give to my students. LennyeTran Wrote:
If one's used to this way of reading, they'd only read what they wanted to know or hear in the text and ignore the rest.
There are other techniques that require different reading strategies and I make a point of rotating the kind of exercise. Therefore, the students don't get used to just reading this way.
The purpose of this exercise is that it focuses on understanding the text - getting the general idea. linkhn expressed some difficulties in this area. It was one example of how developing stategies is important. Students are often unaware of how
they read in their native language and thus may have some difficulties reading foreign texts.
Anyway, Linkhn, the idea is that you could consider this exercise as a starting point for further practice, it isn't a complete solution.
