when i read in english ,i always want to understand every single word and so i spend a lot of time looking words up in my dictionary.this makes reading difficult for me because by the time i've looked up the word in my dictionary .i've forgotten what the rest of the sentence was about.that's my trouble realy --i rely to mach on my dictiony . well,why don't you try to read a text without using your dictionary the first time you read it?you'll probably be able to understand most of it and guess what some of the words mean. i have to read a lot of english in my studies and this is causing me problems.i read too slowly in english .do you think i can train myself to read quickly and the same time understand what i'm reading? well,there are special courses in speed-reading.i think .but you could probably help yourself a time limit and try to read as much as you can within the time.i've done that and it's helped me a lot. i hope these can help with you!
