Reading ability occupies a relatively important score in the examination. Now, what methods can foreign teachers of English tell you to improve children's reading ability?
Improve your fast reading skills
1. Learn to look at phrases, not individual words.
If you read articles word for word, your reading speed will be greatly reduced. Foreign teachers of children's English suggest that when your children have mastered some words, they should begin to exercise their reading speed. When you read a book, you can't look at words one by one. First try to look at 2-3 words at a time, then 4-5 words, until you can look at a whole line of words.
2. Use your hands to push reading.
Try to use your finger to drive reading speed. Simply move your finger faster in places where it's difficult, but slower in places where it's difficult. This method of reading is to control the eyes with fingers.
3. Scan keywords.
To understand an article quickly, you don't need to filter every word, just grab the key words. When teaching children to read, foreign teachers often have some key questions, such as time, place, data, etc. They can find out the key words and connect them together to understand the general meaning of the article.

1. Investigate the reading text.
Before reading, it is suggested that children can look up some relevant information, such as the author's introduction, the background of the country concerned and so on. Don't think it's a waste of time. Reading is not to catch up with the progress, but to gain something from reading.
2. Write down your questions.
By reading this article, you want to know what is critical, that is to say, you should read with purpose. In the process of reading, we also need to take some notes, so that we can write down what we feel and think.

1. Expand your vocabulary.
Many children and adults say that the biggest obstacle to slow reading is vocabulary. Indeed, when we encounter unknown words, we will definitely stop to think or look up the dictionary, which will affect our reading speed to a certain extent. When teaching children to read, foreign teachers generally do not recommend that children immediately check the words they do not know, but encourage them to try to guess the meaning of the words, until the end of the reading to verify.
