We live in a text-based world, where dropping an e-mail or texting someone is often more popular than paying a visit or making a phone call. In order to be an active member of such a society a set of well-developed reading skills seem to be a must. At the same time, however, people (especially the youth) read less and less for pleasure, which makes the development of this crucial skill rather sluggish. Now what can we do as teachers of a foreign language to help our students become better readers, for the sake of both real life and exams? What teaching techniques will boost our learners’ reading comprehension skills? Join my session and find out!
