Reading is very important in English learning. I’ll give you some advice which can improve your English reading. First, it’s a good idea to choose some important books or some books you are interested in to read. But you should remember that you’d better read easy books at first. Don’t read books you can’t understand at all. Also it’s helpless for you to read so slowly and you shouldn’t look up some words as soon as you meet them, you can guess the meanings first. What’s more,
when you get the main idea about the article, please read again and read slowly and carefully, then you can look up some words which are necessary. Above all, you must read every day and you can’t give up, or you will be defeated. I think if you are careful to learn it, you’ll be successful. That’s all, thank you for listening.
The sample passage: I am leaving senior high school soon and I have a plan for my future. I want to go to university and get special training. I like English and I am also good at English, So I w
ant to be better at English and I plan to specialize in English for science and technology. I want to be skilled in it and make it my career.
I hope one day I could translate some articles of science and technology. I want to be knowledgeable person and I want to make my life fruitful.
