Description

The Improve Your Reading Speed and Comprehension course will help you become a better reader.

When reading for pleasure, you will remember more of the material and engage with it in a deeper way.

When reading for academic purposes, you will retain more information for quizzes, tests, and exams.  Also, you will have better access to the material for essay writing, book reports, speeches, and so on.

Being able to read is one thing - being able to read well and comprehend what your read is another!

Also, increasing your reading speed without losing the essential reading comprehension piece will bring you many rewards no matter what kind of reading you are doing.

Please, come and be willing to engage yourself, and you will reap the benefits of improved reading!

  • Any person who wishes to increase his or her reading speed while also improving comprehension.
  • Students who want to increase their enjoyment of reading.
