  • “Different interests” applies A LOT to me…I literally share my interests with no one…since college always keeps me on my feet, my free time is rather simple…I usually like to just relax and do nothing after I’m done with my work…I play Pokemon on my 3DS, I watch random Youtube videos, I watch the 2 only shows I like (South Park + One Piece), and once in awhile I like to draw and write for fun…but that’s all I do! Such few interests I have! Almost nobody can relate!

  • Haven’t I told u that u’are the best teacher??����
    I am an Asian and I really like watching your videos!! They are great (as always)! Thank you for making all these great videos! And I have a little request?? Can you please make videos about slangs and expressions that Americans use? I really Like them!
    Thank u again

  • i use your first method, it’s really interesting to find new vocabularies instead of leaving it as an unknown word. sometimes those vocabularies make me smile if it’s Unknown for me and I’d been looking forward to finding that word’s meaning

  • Hello Jennifer. I try, but I can not to avoid to compare the english language with portuguese language, for example when you say: “However, there are only so many hours in a day” it sound a little confusing, because “only” I understand as little bit and “so many” I understand as too much. therefore, I understand as a day there are few and many hours at the same time. Have you a tip to I do not compare two language?

  • The Shining by Stephen King. It would be pleasant for Advanced learners. The language is up-to-date so you won’t have to learn old-fashioned words

  • I speak with Vicki but we get in arguments sometimes. Sometimes she DOESN’T like a word I think is good. It has the word ‘love’ in it, so I thought it was good. But she hates the words love handles and we get in argument. She says “It might be a good word to the person say it, but not if you are the person hearing it about yourself.”
    Vicki says you don’t tell a woman she has “love handles” even when it is a compliment. You have to know her very well and she has to like it. Is that true?

    Where are your videos about chunking? Vicki is doing German chunking. She wants to do English chunking with me but the can’t find your videos in her email. She says her paid work blows up her email every single day with dozens of emails. Other emails get lost. It makes her angry because it gets buried so fast.

  • Im from Brazil and I’ll do a important test where have a part in English in this year and your video help me so much ’cause I don’t know reading well in English and have attention. Thank you so much

  • спасибо очень здорово на чёрном экране английские предложения-глаза не устают-и звучит ваш чудный голос очень хорошо продуманна форма урока

  • effortless Englishby aj hoge is a great book if you wanna know how to improve English faster and effortlessly and it has a very simple English language

  • thank you teacher, you usually bring me a positve thinking. My interests are very simple when I was a student. I met my friends and chatted with them about  everything. Sometimes, we had crazy actions together. But now, because of working and distance, We cant see each other. We sometimes only chat online

  • The books in our cntry are written in english and not in our native language.
    Im reading the book while looking for the meaning of words in an online dictionary. Shit!

  • Hi I live in America but also like your accent I’m learning more English I need to add more vocabulary to my learning. You’re a good teacher ��

  • Great advise many thanks
    Personaly I am working in a same method
    Since I started doing that my language jumped huge steps forward and it also improved my voca., grammar besides the pleasure and enjoyable of reading great novels.
    Highly recommending this method:)

  • Hey
    You mentioned something about skim reading the articles. Please make a video on skim reading, how to comprehend the most in least possible time, summarise what we read, and speed reading.

  • FRIEND My speaking skills are not as good as my writing, what am I supposed to do?
    ME If speaking skills are like arrow, then your listening skills are the bow.
    Listen before you speak

  • Last March, I stumbled upon this reading guideline HowToRead.4YourHelp. Com (remove space and open the website). My boy and I have been really serious in performing reading lessons since then. These days, my son don`t need my assistance to read textbooks. My boy feels really confident and is doing good in Kindergarten this year.?

  • Writing is difficult to me… But, I think I can improve by trying again and again. I have a term test on June 29th and I’m scared of it, because I have to do a Writing between 180 and 220 words and I know I’m not good in Grammar.

  • I have always felt Ashamed and stupid. Because I’m have not got reading and spelling yet. I just don’t won’t to feel like a scared little kid any more

  • Bonsoir dear Vanessa I’m from Algerian my native languages are Arabic and French! in fact I appreciate the way of your teaching English! Personally I’m doing well in English compared to few couple of years and when I listen to your videos I can understand you 99 % and sometimes 100 % but when it comes to American movies I’m feeling frustrated because I can hardly understand the way of their speaking! I want you to give me some advice to fix that! Merci et je vous souhaite une excellente journée!

  • In my case, looking up every words I don’t know immediately takes too much time, so unless I keep up with the story, I just keep reading.

  • Appreciate Video clip! Sorry for the intrusion, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you heard about Millawdon Future Ticket Trick (do a search on google)? It is a great one off guide for teaching children to read without the hard work. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my cooworker at very last got cool results with it.

  • I’ve been studying american english for a long time but I still can’t get the fluency that I want, even though your accent is quite different I think that would be cool learning a new way of speaking then mix it with the one I learned before and finally be able to speak a sort of mutant english..

  • Thank you so much Wes!great,useful ideas!Singing is my best way to practice..but not easy shadowing Ella Fitzgerald or Etta James!nice evening!:)��

  • Hi Jack, i’m trying to read a book in English about different psychology beetween men and women but for my English level i do not find easy to understand it. What would you recommend for me? You are a very good teacher and i always like watching your videos ��

  • I guess to engage with a foreigner is quite harder than just speaking a same language. I’d take it more to make friends, the rest is up to fate. I daresay any human beign is quite smart to get self-taught. It’s just an opinion, thanks for your effort Wes.

  • This was my first book in English and is really good. I recommend for beginners and intermediate students.
    “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian”.

    By Sherman Alexie

  • Lovely Video clip! Sorry for the intrusion, I would love your thoughts. Have you heard the talk about Millawdon Future Ticket Trick (probably on Google)? It is a good exclusive guide for teaching children to read minus the normal expense. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my cousin at very last got cool success with it.

  • Hi Jennifer, I’m your fans. I ‘ve been watching almost all your videos on Youtube. And I ‘ve completed understood all these videos. and now I have two problems, when I open books that really hard for me to continue ( cuz I don’t really understand). The other problem is when I’m driving, I have no idea what the speakers talking about. I really want to overcome all these problems. of course my speaking isn’t that great either. pls indicate me. Thanks

  • Speaking Haha, I also added a code word in my language learning account to be sure that other people have read my profile. ��
    Your idea with Siri is great! It just made me laugh out loud! ������
    I practise a lot by shadowing English audios. This is the most effective way for me to get used to the language. I do this a lot! I probably sound like a parrot…����
    We wanted to travel to Italy this summer. But for certain reasons maybe it might be better to stay at home this year. ������

  • Tks for your lesson. This is a great way for practice to speak English. Anyway I need to do it right now and keep in my mind. Have a nice day.

  • Hi
    I just sign up with the lingoda sprint for 8 April.
    Can you tell me what I have to do now please! Do I have to wait or do something. Please reply me back

  • It depends. I like to use both methods. Sometimes I just like to immerse myself in the story, and other times I’m reading to try to catch new words and improving my vocabulary!

  • One for the money by janet evanovich, it is an enjoyable novel good for upper intermediate, the vocabulary are the general day to day English, no exaggeration or academic vocabulary, its the American police crimes money cars gangs and all the none rich and none educated people stuff

  • Appreciate Video! Sorry for chiming in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you thought about Bonaliyar Bizarre Blaster (google it)? It is an awesome one of a kind product for teaching your child to read minus the hard work. Ive heard some great things about it and my old buddy Taylor finally got astronomical results with it.

  • According to Dr Gordon W. Green one should read at natural speed where you attain full understanding. Your reading speed will develop naturally. Forcing yourself to read quickly could ruin your reading and destroy your motivation. However, your curiosity should affect how fast you read.

  • Hi Lucy!!! Thanks a lot for your videos. Please I need tips to gapped texts when I must write one word and it does not give options, only I must complete it. Please advices!!!!

  • It’s one of things what I am confused to choose the best method to read English textbook. My goal is just I can understand the concept, in other hand I want to know every single vocabulary as well. ��

  • Jennifer, thank you for the video. I have a question. I’m confused about one phrase you use. Only so many days/hours. What does it mean? Only and so and many together?

  • this is very nice videos if any want more videos then visite this channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKcVm9pFHqrL8qx1Cc1ZLGA

  • I used 2 Methods ✋because I am a student at a school and we must study English so that is this language is a basic language such as Arabic language.
    So we have got two books, one of them named “a student book” which have got a paragraphs, articles, conversation between two or more and stories, so, when I read an article or story or anything, I read the whole story to know the basic idea, then I reread the story to know the meaning of the difficult words by using Google ��

  • My reading and my writing skills are pretty good, but lately I’ve been working on my speaking skills really hard because I still have hard time around my spoken English, even after almost six months studying English. I’m gonna try to put all these suggestions into practice. But the way, excellent suggestions, Wes. Thanks.

  • Hello Wes.
    I remember, few months ago, I had difficultt to understand what you sad, but not just you especificy, but everybody…
    Listening your videos, tobay I get to undertand almost all, at least 90%.
    So, I consider important to practice, practice and never give up…
    Thank”s for your videos.
    It’s amazing and I really appreciatte it.��

  • I don’t understand what you mean. Read by grouping…I HAVE to read each word to know what is stated.. otherwise I have no clue what’s going on

  • If you can read Les chroniques de Narnia, you probably have good basis in French, I mean this is not the easiest book. I rarely read a book in English but I started by stopping at each word I couldn’t understand and search it right away, now I tend to try to get the global meaning unless I really have no idea of what it means…because it can take sooooo long to finish the book, so it is important to chose something that you deeply like, or you might lose motivation

  • This is more than true guys, I have tried this out. I heard about it from a Ted talk video and it really works out. The most imp thing isn’t reading fast, it’s about increasing your concentration. Your reading speed will eventually increase

  • Hello, sir thanks for this video. In my case, while I am reading the book i stopped sometime because of intensive reading. After some time I quit that.

  • You are such a great and magical teacher. we are grateful for you efforts for helping us in the process of learning. Actually, I used the rirst method which is looking up the words immediately for understanding the concept, and for curiosity as well. However, it will take so much time to read the text.

  • Hi Lucy,
    I find difficult in reading and it takes times coz in order to understand I try to transtale the content into my native language and read it again and again.
    Even though I don’t get what that content means

  • I have read “The old man and the sea” by Ernest Hemingway. I used the second method. I think it is the more useful, because keep you focus and interested on the story.

  • Appreciate Video! Excuse me for butting in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you heard about Millawdon Future Ticket Trick (google it)? It is an awesome exclusive guide for teaching children to read without the normal expense. Ive heard some decent things about it and my close friend Aubrey got cool results with it.

  • When i read books or manga(Japanese comics) I take screenshots of the page that has unknown words then later I’ll search the meanings

  • After highlighting sentense I can’t continue reading. Due to unclosed Gestalt ))) But thank you so much! I needed a video like this.

    My book recommendation is The catcher in the rye. It’s easy to read and funny.

  • Diary of a wimpy kid / Wonder / the perks of being a wallflower / the catcher in the rye -> these are all great books for people that have an intermediate level of English and are starting to read books

  • At the moment I’m reading Dark Matter, which was written by Blake Crouch. In my opinion, the three methods are useful but they have differents purposes. And about your question, I’m using the last method that you have mentioned.

  • Speaking of books, do you have mine yet? If not, it’s free to download. Click the link, enter your details, and I’ll send it to you straight away: https://www.tofluency.com/5-step-plan/

  • I read the 3 first books of Harry Potter on my smartphone using the Adobe Acrobat and I used the first method on the video. As I read the book I wrote down on a notebook the words I didn’t know so then I could check them out later to try and study they separately.

  • Kudos for the Video clip! Excuse me for chiming in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you researched Millawdon Future Ticket Trick (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is an awesome one off guide for teaching children to read minus the headache. Ive heard some super things about it and my cooworker finally got astronomical success with it.

  • I hate it I really do hate it when I read nd never understand a single thing it’s a frustrated feeling to not understand what u read I always have this terrible feeling
    makes me feel stupid ����

  • I know every word alone, but when they are together, it is hard for me to quickly get the meaning of the sentence. I think I also know the grammar pretty well. The problem might be that I don’t know how to break down a sentence into small segments in one glance. My reading speed is even slower than my listening speed. It is frustrating.

  • The “Reason” is NOT “because”, Miss Know-all English Degree teacher.
    The “Reason” is “THAT!”
    The reason “WHY ” is “Because,”
    Might be a fairly good idea to learn Academic English before you put yourself out as an expert!

    Commute is a verb, NOT a noun!
    Commutation was the original noun before the word was stolen from Electrical Engineering and had its use falsified.

    A list to “Study from” From is a preposition and does NOT come at the end of a sentence, Very inelegant!
    “From which to study”.
    Comprehensive School stuff..Not language lecturer stuff!

    “Transformed so many of my student’s vocabularies. ”
    “Transformed the vocabularies of so many of my students.” is far more elegant.. Not lecturer standard!
    Vocabs. get transformed not the students.

    “Skeduling as opposed to Scheduling is an Americanism!”
    I thought that you were teaching English!

    Where on earth did I acquire such an erroneous notion?

    Physician. Heal thyself!

    Stephen Fry.? With you all the way although he would grimace at some of yours. e.g. Your drop-jawed pronunciation

  • Subscribe to my YouTube channel to improve reading habits.

    I read books chapter by chapter in my channel for people who’re short on time or lack attention or dislike reading…:) Breaking down goals makes them easier, with this logic I make chapter by chapter videos…

  • I only reads books related to business, economics and politics should I start reading books about Sci fiction and novels, I’m not keen to those genres.

  • Appreciate Video! Sorry for the intrusion, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you tried Millawdon Future Ticket Trick (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a smashing exclusive guide for teaching children to read minus the normal expense. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my GF finally got amazing results with it.

  • I just read and underline and then look up the words I don’t know and Keep going to read and then I just apply one of them to make sentences. Especially when I look it up, I use English dictionary not our native language dictionary.

  • Hi Jennifer, really glad to have found you. I’ve just recorded this reading and it was an amazing experience because I recognized all my mistakes. Now I can focus on the pronunciation problems. Grazie, Jennifer! You are a real teacher: professional, energetic and generous. The best!:)

  • For intermediate speakers, i recommend The adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, which i am reading right now. English is taught as second language here in my place. This book was there in school syllabus. But those days just mug up question and answers from this book just to clear the exams. Now in this lockdown period i am reading it like intensive.

  • I usually read a book looking up some unfamiliar words but not all of them. Just those ones which I think could be useful for me and are used in real life. I mark them on my Kindle book, and after reading write them out to my copybook with sentence examples. But sometimes I just keep reading and don’t mind them. When I understand 80-90 presents it’s fine)

  • Thank you so much for these amazing tips
    It’s really usefull. I’m going to try right now. I’ll send you the name of the book wich I’m gonna choose.
    Take care

  • Hey Guys, do you guys need to come in my whatsapp and create a group for speaking pratice.
    If you guys Ready Text me +50936326116.
    I’ll do it when i get at least 7 or 10 or more people ����

  • I was underlined all the words I didn’t know but I didn’t stop the reading until the end of the chapter or the couple of pages I wanted to read. Then I took the dictionary and note all the words or expresions on a book to could work them. Actually at the begining I tried to stop on every words and to look in the dictionary to understand them, but it was very borring and it disconected me of the general story. I think, something important too is too choose well the book. I mean, not to choose something with a too hight vocabulary level (like very descriptives books… you know like Zola lol…) but something you can read quite easyly and for wich you have a real interest. Thanks for your videos and your energy, they’re great:)

  • I am sorry,but I can not learn English or to listening in this way!
    It is not corectly to learn English in this way!
    You speak English like I would be an Englishman!
    I am sorry! I don’t like that!!!!

  • essaye de comprendre le contexte en général
    car si tu t’arrête a chaque fois pour chercher la signification du mot
    non seulement sa va prendre beaucoup de temps et de plus sa va te démotiver
    I’m Lyes from algiers

  • The book i ‘ve recently read is called “ The Double”, written by Russian author in 19 centuries. I reckon this book is suitable for intermediate English learners because there is widely use of complex vocabulary and phrase. Whats more, this novel had been adapted to a fascinating movie by British Director, Richard Ayoade, in 2013. Also called “ The Double”

  • Vanessa Please make an video explaining how do you use the word ACTUALLY, I’ve seen it over and over again but I am confused because doesn’t mean “Actualmente” (En español) and I don’t find any video which explains it

  • thank you Jennifer. I am proud when I have nice teacher.you have good sound to teach.

  • Hi Vanessa! I am reading now the book Origin by Dan Brown! There are array of new words for me! I am really interested to expand my vocabulary that’ s why i go meticulously with the first method you mentioned in this video!Once again thanks teacher!your video lessons enhance my serene confidence in learning English!

  • Could you learn us like this guys skills,, we just need to reduction, linking words,contractions… like this please

  • I have read a book called ” Horrid Henry” in the first I was try to find the meaning of the unknown words for me immediately, then I found this way a little boring and it kills my keen, so I decided to highlight the words that I don’t know then I find the meaning of them after I finish the chapter, as long as I understand the concept I am fine.

  • That’s absolutely helpful I enjoy reading Psychological books as the one in hand GRIT please recommend which audiobook app you use thank you a lot for your support

  • I’m very fond of botany, above all wild plants. I also like learning English and a bit of German, sometimes I can practise them with my customers or passers-by. But as you put it, family comes first so, from time to time, I find it difficult to spare time for everything. I wouldn’t say it stresses me, it’s good to be active and very good to listen to you, you’re so nice a person. Thank you very much.

  • I have used both the methods.
    I like the immersive method better when the only aim is to know the story but for learning purposes I prefer 1st method

  • One year ago I tried to read an English book, which was ‘Peter Pan’. I’ve never finished it, although I hate not finishing things.
    The reason was the language used, it is a very old book and I felt it was too difficult and not so useful to finish it.
    So I recommend you not to buy a book just because it is in English, I think it is important to focus not only on the language and on the story, but also on a modern English from which we can learn new and useful words and idioms

  • What do you think about the level of pride and prejudice. I think i am doing intensive reading. Because i found the grammer is challenging too even though i thought i know all the grammer. So i am reading both in english and turkish at the same time. Sometimes i know the words and grammer but still the sentence doesn’t make sense to me. How can i improve that?

  • in my opinion the best ones to read inicially are books for kids after that i really recommend go-to classics ’cause they will enable u to understand more and more,no just the grammar rules e etc,but more than this will help u to achieve your consistency on speaking and understand more smoothly

  • Reading is the best thing an English learner can do. However, I’ve found out that I learn better when there are images included in the story; that’s why I decided to read comics instead. They are doing a great job with my English. Little by litle, I´m getting better and better at English.

  • THANK YOU REALLY! For those tips,now I can finally get to read more books I like reading a lot but I have only read one none fiction book and a couple of children books bc i was stuck at the perfectionist cycle when it comes to reading and i had to look up every single word and it really ruined reading for me so I guess now I’m more into the immersive method:D

  • Hello Lucy

  • 6 years ago while having my first experience reading an English book I tried your first tip and then I got bored after stopping a lot of times to look up for a word or expression I didn’t know, that said, I tried the second method and you know what? I’m in the same boat as yours! I think it’s the best way to emerge and move on the story and then you realize some words just come to your mind and it looks like you already know what that word or expression means. That was a nice experience and I can asure you guys she’s totally correct, follow her steps as I have followed years ago and just now I’m watching the video! That’s interesting how real this tips are. LOL thank you Vanessa!!

  • Thank you so much for these great tips. Shadowing is really the best method as you mentioned and I do this while watching movies and it definitely works. And the last tip which was speaking was even more interesting.

  • Hello teacher jennifer
    Your oral reading fluency is perfect.The phrases choosen are positive taught and it makes me active.I read the first fluency”A new day” everyday.I wondered if there is more than ten fluencies until today I see the eleventh fluency.Teacher what do you think to add one more thing.First we listen and repeat silently then read with you slowly and read in natural pace and I think we can add one more thing that to write few phrases in the same topic. What do you think?

  • i use your first method, it’s really interesting to find new vocabularies instead of leaving it as an unknown word. sometimes those vocabularies make me smile if it’s Unknown for me and I’d been looking forward to finding that word’s meaning

  • It’s really a helpful video to improve reading skills.

  • I’ve been having problems with past when navite people speak for example, “If I help you vs If I helped you” you people from English contries don’t say anything different. What could I do to undestand the difference.

  • Hello
    Anyone has many interests.However we must give any interest his time.We have to own the day.Time for friends and before that family.Time for work and another time for pleasure and so on.The more important thing to do is to enjoy any second because life is too short.

  • when I start reading at the first I was trying to understand every single word but it really boring, so I decided to just underline new expressions that I didn’t understand.

  • I do both methods! thanks!! I love your work!!! Next semester I’ll get a course from your website. I didn’t do it yet because my time to study English is short. But next semester I’ll have time to study English.

  • to be honest, i haven’t used any of the methods you’ve told us to use it so far in case i ain’t wanna read any book yet. i hope I’ll use it in the future.

  • Speaking! Man, in my next vacation I was thinking to get at your home, yeah with this I meet your baby and improve my english. haha… look that, you just are there. you will not even need to spend with fuel. Man, this is just to you see that here the other side of the world (Brasil) I attend your classes even late, but I do. I have three kids, my daughter is 16 and the twins are 9. Since they were born they are the fuel of my life, because of that I got really happy to know about your baby…this is a god gift it is challenger but still a god gift. That’s it… Peace…Hi from Brazil!

  • Well, it depends on the article I read. If I want to go into details I’ll underline that new word and look it up immediately. If that new word doesn’t interfere much with my comprehension I’ll just underline it and keep go on reading to the end of the paragraph or the page, and then go back for its meaning. When I read a novel, esp. on my phone I just skip it over and continue reading to enjoy the flows of a story.

  • 1) read a bundle of words instead of word-by-word
    2) practice peripheral vision
    3)use a pointer to follow with Your eyes
    4)work on understanding confidence and concentration
    5)always read the title and introduction
    6)practice quality reading daily
    7)acknowledge the fact that different books will require different reading speeds

    Good luck!

  • I deeply recommend Charlotte’s Web. I know it’s a children book, but it’s such a lovely book, with beautifull characters and with a remarkable message about friendship

  • I used kindle apps to read e-books, you can tap and hold and highlight the words that you didn’t understand and immediately find the meaning for you, it has built in dictionary and flashcards as well, I hope it helps!:)

  • Excellent video content! Sorry for chiming in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you heard the talk about Millawdon Future Ticket Trick (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a great one of a kind guide for teaching children to read minus the hard work. Ive heard some decent things about it and my m8 after a lifetime of fighting got great results with it.

  • Thank you mam for the instructions. Can you please guide me some good english books. I want the names of storybooks that are for class 6 kids. Can you please guide me some books.

  • Conclusion: read the sentences other than word by word separately through the any instrument like pen, pencil etc. With the proper distance in a proper time and proper way

  • When I am reading I try to understand the concept, maybe there is a word that I don’t know but I don’t care a lot, but if that word appears again I stop and I look it up!

  • Hi, Vanessa, thanks for this video, and thanks for this very interesting topic.
    Well, when i read anything in English, i usually don’t stop reading when i come across new words because as long as i know the context then comes easy to guess the meaning, and i find that i always get the right meaning, it works for me however, this metod didn’t come easy at the beginning, but it took a bit of time and lots of practic to finally feel comfortable with it. One last thing i’d like to say, that’s i strongly think that the key or the secret to improve your reading is as always “The practice” the more you’ll practice, the more you’ll extend your comprehension, and at the end, all starts to become easier! �� Bye for now, Vanessa, thanks again for your commitment, and take care! ��

  • I have read a lot of books in English and still and as for me I look up the meaning of the words immediately because I wanna know the meaning of very single word.

  • Lovely video content! Excuse me for the intrusion, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you ever tried Millawdon Future Ticket Trick (just google it)? It is a smashing exclusive guide for teaching children to read minus the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my best friend Jordan got astronomical results with it.

  • I’ve been reading only books in English since last year, and it helped me a lot to improve my vocabulary (at least the passive one, lol). I realized it’s way easier to read ebooks on my phone instead of paper books, due to the built in dictionary that the app has. It was so fascinating that I bought a Kindle so I wouldn’t get headaches everyday because of the strong backlight of mobile devices. Reading lots of books (I read 100 books last year), I noticed the improvement by how many words I used to highlight over a single page compared to now, when I don’t need to take a look at the meaning of lots of words because I already did that in the past. That’s really exciting, I truly recommend reading for increasing someone’s vocab knowledge.

  • when i startes reading english books i used the second method and then i switched to the first method….i did it wrong…in fact the second method is more useful…but you know…when you learn and you wanna be perfect you want try to understand evert single words…and that’s wrong

  • My dad have almost sixty years old, he read alot of books and he still doing this method number one even in our mother language. There’s so many words in every language that it’s impossible to learn them all.

  • I’m facing the same problems that you have mentioned about reading spanish.
    It’s very hard to read the same paragraph again and again to grasp what it’s really means.

  • I’ve read catcher in the rye and I think it’s intimidate
    the method I used was that I would take quick look at the page or chapter and highlight the words that look unknown, then I write their definition in a notebook, then I read the whole page or chapter.

  • I normally read the Bible, as I’ve read it in Portuguese. Só I don’t look at the dictionary, but some time I use the first method and it does take a lot of time. As I’m really curious if I read a book in English that I’ve never read before it would take me a decade to finish it, because I certainly will use the first method. Vanessa I love your tips. Keep on like that. I’m always sharing videos like yours to my students and friends. This one will be it.

  • Perks of being a wallflower, Fault in our stars, The invisible man. I tried all of the methods! It really depends on my mood. If I am deeply into the story I wouldn’t care much. If I can’t understand and I feel it’s new then I look it up. Or if I am lazy I’ll just continue reading!

    I made a mistake: you can HAVE a bird’s eye view!

  • when I read books if I don’t understand any meaning at the same time I underline and look up immediately after sometime I look up again this method really helpful for me.
