Heres a summary of how I've been getting on with my action points
To some extent, I have improved my reading skills particularly in increasing the speed and understanding the text. So far, I have been more confident to tap and read the texts from the middle rather than word to word which might be time-consuming. The skip-backing strategy has been very useful for my reading time. As the tutor's suggestion in my previous blog, I stop and record some important learning topics using different ways such as highlighting the texts or typing them in my laptop.
On the other hand, I am still struggling to reduce the subvocalization in reading the texts. I tried to eat some snack when I was reading a book last week but in fact I lost my concentration. I can't try chewing the gum as suggested by the website and tutor since I don't really like it. Hopefully, I can find more powerful strategies to reduce the subvocalization.
