Follow-up to FOLLOW–UP FOR SPEEDY READING from Yentl's WSPA blog

Last week I specifically reviewed on the problem that I had in the workshop and what ¡¥went wrong¡¦ regarding comprehension. Since then, I have been trying out the strategies that I suggested last week.

For the tapping technique, since I am working for a judge at the moment, I come across large amount of cases every day. I would skip out the conjunction words, although it is quite difficult to carry out at first since I had no background of that particular case. I will gradually skip out more words other than just the conjunction words, it is better to first get used to not reading them. As for the guide technique, I still find it very useful and am constantly adapting to it.

Recently I have realized that I did not time myself whenever I read because obviously it would be quite awkward to time myself when I am working with a judge. Also I am occupied with a lot of work at the moment, I hardly find time to sit down and read. One possible way to resolve this would be to time myself while reading articles for the assignments.

    Hi Yentl,
    Sounds like you’ve been busy! You’ve come up with a good way of incorporating what are essentially scanning techniques to help you with reading blocks of words.

    Remember, this is one of the skills which takes time to get better at – so keep finding time to practice on some easier material too.
