How to Read Faster

Not only for students but for other people, too , ability to read more quickly is a great help for getting through their day’s work efficiently. Faster Reading also makes reading more enjoyable. We get the facts with less thinking. This makes reading truly an enjoyable work. An important aid to faster reading is genuine intrest in the material. That is why we can read an absorbing story or a letter from home much fastely than a business report. Fast reading comes from concentrating on the material and to keep reminding yourself to increase the speed.

Here are few guidelines to help you read faster

1 perhaps you have to pass some examinations. Picture yourself using the material to answer a question in the examination room.

2 Focus your mind on the task by using a pencil to make a summary as you go along.

3 The more completely you know the language and the wider your vocabulary, the more quickly you can read. Therefore, keep a good dictionary at hand and use it regularly.

4 Read for pleasure a wide variety of authors and types of books. Take part in conversation as much as you can in different subject. Use the new words you learn to enrich your own speech.

5 Speed , understanding and memory go together. The faster you read the more you remember. The more you understand the faster you can read.

6 Do not be afraid that by reading more quickly you will miss the inner meaning. That may sometime be true be poetry or great literature, but as a rule that is not the kind of reading we want to do more quickly.

7 The more quickly you read and the more you understand, the more easily you will select the facts that count.

8 Try to avoid the time wasting habit of reading the matter twice.

9 Speed in reading is helped by will-power and determination. Keep forcing your self along at a faster speed. Keep reducing the time taken.

10 Wise skipping can contribute to faster reading. It is a method of selecting what you can safely omit. To skip efficiently through a newspaper article, read the first sentence of each paragraph. When the paragraph is long, look at its end as well. Most articles express an idea or fact at the start of each paragraph, then elaborate it. Thus the opening sentences give a ready summary of the whole article.

11 If it is difficult to remember anything we are not eager to learn, so here again motivate your self by constant references to your aims and ambitions.

12 The method of recall will help you to remember what you read. After you have read something, write a summary of it while it is still fresh in your mind.
