The importance of Reading
Give Only 15 minutes a day!!
Reading is the basis of knowledge and language learning. It gives people a larger perspective of many things than they had ever known before. If we are to learn good English then we must learn to read.
I have often heard students say “I don’t like to read”. Even if you don’t like to read serious books you probably like to read comics, picture books, stories, novels or any other kind of fiction. If you like such light reading such as fiction it can help you to improve your English.
There is no doubt that reading may seem – in today’s digital world- a very passive and poor way of learning English, even boring at times, yet it is the foundation on which you can help to improve your language. So once you have decided that you are going to improve your language begin by reading. And all you have to do is give fifteen minutes of your time!
Choose what you want or like to read like reading a newspaper. Choose to read simple articles or a few pages of a story book. about two or three pages in the beginning.
At first you will find that there are many difficult words which you come across, so should you consult your dictionary every time ? Not necessarily. many times we can find the meaning of words merely by the context which is the is the background of the story.
So let me know what you read and how difficult it was. Did you need to use a dictionary? Share your views and write to me. Let me know opinion and your problems while learning English and maybe I can help you to overcome these problems.
