Helping Students to Read More Effectively.
Getting students interested in reading is often a difficult aspect of English teaching, especially if the texts are not particularly exciting. Students have usually developed a range of reading skills in their first language which they tend not to transfer into English. Thus they can get bogged down with trying to understand every word and spend a long time on unnecessary parts, causing them to lose interest and fail to digest the key parts.
In these sessions we will look at ways of encouraging students to use top-down skills to help them to understand texts more efficiently. We will examine ways of making reading activities more interactive and fun.
