Practice scanning:

  • Let your eyes travel quickly over a passage in order to find something specific that you are looking for.

  • Use context around a new word to guess its meaning. Context can be sentences around the word or a paragraph or a passage.

Practice reading fast:

  • If you do not know the meaning of a word but you understand the sentence, move on. Do not stop to look up the word in your dictionary.
