Improving Reading Comprehension

Reading Comprehension

When learning a second language, it is easy to focus on every word. However, this is not always the best because, if you do, it is hard to comprehend the overall meaning.

Instead of focusing on every word, teach yourself to focus on phrases within a sentence. If you do this, it will improve both your reading fluency and comprehension.

For example, the following sentence has three phrases. The first phrase tells us who does the action (subject). The next phrase tells us what the action is (verb). The last phrase tells us who receives the action (object).

The old man • turned and looked intently • at the three mischievous boys.
