(2 points) HINTS FOR READING PRACTICE Set aside time each day Most of us can fine 15 minutes or half an hour each day for some specific regular activity. It may be a free period or regular wait, say in the queue for a bus or meal- even while eating breakfast. One famous surgeon always made it a rule to spend at least 15 minutes on general reading before he went to sleep each night. Whether he went to bed at 10 p.m or 2-30 a.m made no difference. Even if you can not keep to this kind of discipline, it is a good idea to make sure you always have a general interest book in your pocket. Don’t forget it should be a book which entertains you and the English must not be too difficult for you. Check your progress through pacing Nearly all speed reading courses have a “pacing” element - some timing device which lets the student know how many words a minute he is reading. You can do this simply by looking at your watch every 5 or 10 minutes and noting down the page number you have reached. Check the average number of words per age for the particular book you are reading. How do you know when 5 minutes has passed on your watch if you are busy reading the book? Well, this is difficult at first. A friend can help by timing you over a set period, or you can read within hearing distance of a public clock which strikes the quarter hours. Pace yourself every three or four days, always with the same kind of easy, general interest book. You should notice your habitual w.p.m (word per minute) rate creeping up. Check comprehension Obviously there is little point in increasing your w.p.m rate if you do not understand what you are reading. When you are consciously trying to increase your reading speed, stop after every chapter (if you are reading a novel) or every section or group of ten or twelve pages (if it is a textbook) and ask yourself a few questions about what you have been reading. If you find you have lost the thread of the story, or you can not remember clearly the details of what was said, re-read the section or chapter. “Lighting speed” exercise 4
  5. Try this from time to time. Take four or five pages of the general interest book you happen to be reading at that time. Read them as fast as you possibly can. Do not bother about whether you understand or not. Now go back and read them at what you feel to be your “normal” w.p.m rate, the rate at which you can comfortably understand. After a “lighting speed” read through (probably around 600 w.p.m) you will usually find that your “normal” speed has increase - perhaps by as much as 50 -100 w.p.m. This is the technique athletes use when they habitually run further in training than they will have to on the day of the big race. 1.
