27 Aug Tips for learning English: 7 – Read what you enjoy
Read about something you like in English! You will enjoy your English learning experience if you read about what you are interested in. If you like to keep up-to-date about the news, read online news websites, if you like fantasy fiction, read Harry Potter. There are many grammatical functions in different genres of reading material, for example in the news you will find passive sentences and reported speech, while in fiction books you will find creative writing with lots of adjectives and adverbs, and in magazines you might find more informal, colloquial language. There is so much material out there for you, so read what you enjoy in your spare time. You don’t have to read a lot, just little every day. And if you find reading in English difficult or you are new to reading in English, try children’s books (Children’s Books on Amazon).
Reading can help;
- improve and expand vocabulary base,
- sentence structure,
- grammatical structures (passive, reported speech, direct speech + more)
- the rhythm of English and pronunciation if you read aloud.
