Reading to improve your English language

If you really want to improve your English language learning it is essential to have regular contact with a correct model of the language.

  • Watching films, TV series are excellent and highly recommended.
  • Chatting online with native speakers is also worthwhile.
  • Doing grammar exercises from a book or online are also good.

But do NOT forget the importance of reading

Reading helps you to see good models of grammatically correct language*

A regular  habit  of reading books, magazine articles in paper form, or on Kindle and such devices, will help you to unconsciously improve your grammatical structures and spelling.

It is good to read a book, article etc more than once. You will find that after the second and third time of reading your understanding will be better. We learn from habit and repetition.

Amazon is the best, most reliable way to find reading and listening material online.

You can order safely online and in a very short time you will receive your order at home.

To choose suitable material you can use the same method as mentioned below, because Amazon allows you to preview the books.

If you want e-books for KINDLE you will find many promotions at zero cost and thousand of very good small books for less than 5$ When you order them you get them in your computer in a matter of seconds.

You don’t need to have a KINDLE to read them ( see here for more information )

Don’t become obsessed with checking vocabulary in a dictionary. I recommend that you mark the word or phrase and then go back to it later. **

* not all English on the internet is correct English. Be careful with blogs that are written by non-native speakers. Keep to the most popular ones which are usually well-written.

** recommendations for learning vocabulary well will be the subject of another post

Choosing reading material

I strongly recommend that you look at one or two pages of a book or magazine etc before you start reading it.

If you are in a bookshop or newsagents:

  •  look for a book that looks like it could be interesting
  •  open it to any page
  •  read about 5-10 lines
  •  can you understand everything? maybe it’s too simple
  •  are there more than 10 words or phrases that you don’t understand? possibly it’s too difficult
  •  repeat the exercise on another page.

If you are online

Probably you are in Amazon, where you can find “real” books and e-books for KINDLE (if you don’t have Kindle or aren’t sure that you want one, see this article ).

Click on the “Look inside” for a book that looks interesting to see if the book is suitable for you.

    I am really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever
    run into any browser compatibility problems?
    A number of my blog visitors have complained about
    my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks
    great in Chrome. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?
