Why new reading methods
Why new reading methods

  • Most people learn to read in the age of six, and keep this reading methods

  • But it its worth to build up proper strategies to work with texts to shorten the time you need to read and understand

  • This is especially useful for your studies and office work, where it is important to gather information

1 how to not lose the concentration
1. How to not lose the concentration

  • Problem: Thinking on something else while reading a text, starting day dreaming

  • This is caused by a too slow pace of reading

  • Solution: Read faster and set aims

  • Fix a certain aim e.g. number of pages or amount of detail knowledge

  • Generally everybody is able to handle an input of 800 to 1000 words per minute, but most of us read only 200 to 300 words per minute: Start to use your unused capacity

2 how to avoid information overflow
2. How to avoid information overflow

  • Problem: Loosing time by reading unimportant detail information

  • Solution: First of all get a general overview of the text and its density of information

  • Skip through the text page by page and take a few seconds to get a first impression of each page

  • You will be surprised, how much you can understand by only reading: headlines, bold printed, enumerations, long and uncommon words

  • After this general overview you can directly work on the parts which seem to be most important

3 how to pull yourself forwards
3. How to pull yourself forwards

  • Problem: Back skipping in the text during the reading process causes a lack of fastness and a lack of understanding

  • Solution: Go ahead, look forwards in the text

  • Read a complete and coherent part as a closed unity (e.g. a paragraph or a whole chapter)

  • Only after having understood the whole closed part, you can read again the important details and mark them

  • Difficult parts you should read twice without a break

  • Trust in your comprehension skills and don’t try to get all the information by reading a text the first time

4 how to not get stuck
4. How to not get stuck

  • Problem: Getting stuck by reading word-by-word

  • Solution: Identify coherent word groups

  • You can easily recognise 3 to 4 cm of text on a page, what enables you to identify word groups

  • You can also guess which words are usually used together in a context, so you don’t have to get stuck on understanding every single word

Healthy eyes
Healthy Eyes

  • Place reading materials at least 30 cm from the eyes

  • When you read, lighting should be sufficient, even and stable

  • Micro-Breaks: If you spend a good part of your day using the computer, the 20-20-20 rule: the rule suggest that after every 20 minutes, the computer user should take a break for at least 20 seconds and look at objects that are 20 feet away

  • Rest your eyes regularly:

    After reading for 30 to 40 minutes, take a break of 3 to 5 minutes or look at distant objects to relax your eyes
