Helping our students become better readers

Helping our students become better readers

Maggie Temple

Many students find reading a major stumbling block, they get distracted and demoralized if they don’t know the meaning of a word and they tend to ‘forget’ the reading skills which they apply in their own language. Consequently they read slowly, inefficiently and don’t enjoy it much at all.

In this workshop we review the basic ingredients of a reading lesson and look at a few activities which help students become more confident, efficient readers. We also talk about the benefits of extensive reading in making our students successful language learners.
