Hello everyone, I'm George.
And today I'm going to share four tips with you to improve your reading comprehension skills.
It's important to improve your reading skills because not only will it help you to develop your vocabulary and grammar, it will also have a positive effect on your written skills, too.
But before I begin, don't forget to subscribe to the channel, so you don't miss out on any of these lessons.
Tip number one: Choosing reading materials.
If you want to read in English, choose something that you enjoy reading in your own language, that's not too difficult.
Don't feel like you have to read something academic or clever.
Because you're reading in another language, that's already clever.
So you could read a film script, a magazine interview, a comic book or a cookery book.
If you want to read a book, choose one that you're very familiar with in your own language.
For example, when I was studying Korean, I decided to read Harry Potter
Because, when I was a child, I was a massive Harry Potter fan.
So I must have read this book maybe three or four times.
This stopped me from checking every single word that I didn't understand.
It also helped me to understand words and expressions from the context that they were in.
For instance, look at this sentence and imagine you don't know the meaning of the word scar.
Harry Potter had a scar in the shape of a lightning bolt on his forehead.
If you know the story of Harry Potter already, you'll probably remember what was on Harry Potter's forehead.
Therefore, you could easily guess the meaning of the word scar without looking it up in the dictionary.
However, it's important to read various genres too.
So you could read some of your favourite novels and you could read your favourite music magazine.
This will help you to familiarise yourself with formal and informal English.
Tip number two: Vocabulary.
Don't look up every single word you're unsure of.
Note down or highlight any unknown words or expressions that appear more than once in the text.
You can try to guess what they mean through their context and then, afterwards, look them up in the dictionary.
You can also make some flashcards, so that these words and expressions stay fresh in your memory.
Tip number three: Interact.
Note down any opinions you might have about the text.
Don't be afraid to write notes in the book or the magazine, unless it's a library book, in which case you can write on some Post-it notes and stick them on the pages.
Tip number four: Respond.
This is your chance to produce language in response to what you've read.
You might write down your response and give it to a teacher, or you could upload it online and receive feedback that way.
Alternatively, you could discuss what you've read with some friends or classmates, or you could even join a book club and talk about what you've read there.
I thought the book was... good.
The characters were also very... um... good.
Before joining one of these discussions, you could prepare by thinking of some interesting adjectives to describe the characters and the story.
Let's summarize what we've learnt today.
Number one: Choose something you enjoy reading in your own language.
Number two: Don't look up every single word.
Only look up the words that frequently occur in the text.
Number three: Make notes.
And number four: Respond to the text.
That's all we have time for today.
