Tips to Improve Reading by Using the Internet
The Literacy Place: Feb 2018
1. Find websites that offer visual and auditory support: Not everyone learns the same way. Many may learn through seeing visuals or listening to audio. Find websites that offer these kinds of activities. This way, you get to see and hear vocabulary in a way that will help you understand better.
2. Get into the habit of reading out loud: When you read online, make sure you are not doing so silently, so that you can hear yourself saying the words aloud. This helps with pronunciation and your memorization of the word.
3. Try different links: NaturalReader, TextAloudMp3, and StoryPlace are a few of the websites that can help your reading improve. These links can help you download books on tape, download news and weather, activities and reading lists. All these links help you listen to how vocabulary is properly said and helps you gain a better understanding of what you read.
4. Quizzes: Through the use of grammar and vocabulary skills and understanding, a variety of websites may offer quizzes and games that enhance the skills.
5. Exposure: Remember new vocabulary words must be practiced often and the more you come across new words, the better your reading will become. Website resources also include help with misspelled words, grammar, and provide puzzles and games for ESL students and native English speakers wishing to improve their comprehension, reading skills, and written language skills.
