Dominic Cole of DC IELTS emphasizes the importance of knowledge and reading in a recent guest post on eReflect's 7 Speed Reading™ blog, in which he shares with readers his ideas and techniques for increasing overall reading volume. Reading is a fundamental way for people to learn new facts, skills, and techniques. In general, it is one of the best ways to acquire knowledge. But not everyone is keen to open a book, Cole notes, and people often feel the urge to give up reading after a few pages if the book doesn’t pique their interest. Cole suggests that the first step in reading more is reading something that relates to personal likes or interests. Reading text that is enjoyable and engaging means it is less likely the reader will give up, even if they have some reading difficulties.
Cole also recommends a more active approach to reading, one that either involves speaking or writing. By immediately engaging with speaking or writing after reading something, the reader has the opportunity to share the knowledge, which makes it easier to remember in the future. Taking the time to discuss what has been read also helps develop social skills and offers people a chance to use the new vocabulary they have learned. Getting real-time proof of how new knowledge can be acquired through books and immediately used will provide a great motivation for reading more.
Conscious reading is another tip Dominic Cole shares to improve reading habits. When a reader begins by asking themselves what each article or chapter is about, it stimulates a more critical approach to what’s being read and ensures the reader will focus on the information and remember it. Cole also points out that distractions cause problems for many people who want to read more. In his guest blog post, he suggests that minimizing distractions like the telephone or Internet, whether that's by turning them off or moving to another room, will ensure there will be no temptation to stop reading to check an inbox.
eReflect finds Cole’s advice on reading in various modes and ways full of interesting tips. Dominic Cole ends his post by advising readers that in order to keep reading interesting, readers may want to vary the media and change their habits when it comes to reading. For instance, he tells the 7 Speed Reading™ blog readers to read different things (newspapers, online news, novels, journals) in different places at different times and with a different reading speed. By introducing variation, reading will never be boring.
