Introduction.

Reading comprehension is very important in learning a language. To improve reading

comprehension, you should read the appropriate book according to the level of English that

each one has, starting with easy-to-read texts to gradually increase until you reach the most

complex.

Next, we will describe six tips to improve reading comprehension.


Improve reading comprehension in English.

1. Search for a quiet place to read, avoiding at all costs the

distractions, trying to be focused on reading without any type of

interruptions and, in this way get a greater assimilation of concepts.

2. Reread the text because when we read a text for the first time

we are left with the main idea. But if we go back to read the details that were

overlooked, they will be more obvious after the second reading.

3. Visualize is to create our own mental images about what we are reading.

4. Make a quick reading, it helps us to have a main idea of the text and an

idea in general of what happens in the story.

5. Read daily texts in English, this improves your reading level and you

learn more vocabulary, you can read stories, news, books or what

you like to read, this helps you to expand the lexicon and understand

the text much faster.


6. Ask yourself questions before, during and after reading.

Examine the text before reading it and ask yourself the following

questions: Are there words in bold or italics?

What names are mentioned in the text?

Is there a lot of dialogue?

Are the paragraphs short or long? After reading the text, answer the following questions

to evaluate how much you understood.

What was the text about?

What were the most important things?

Did something surprise you?

Are there parts that you did not understand?

7. Face the new terms. If you find an unknown word, underline

it so that later you look for the meaning, but if at the moment you can

deduce what it means, ignore it. It is important to have the ability to

understand the general idea of the text without resorting immediately to

the dictionary. After the reading is finished, you can find out the exact

meaning of the new concepts and form sentences with these words.
8. Make summaries and schemes. This is a good key to improve reading

comprehension, in addition to reading is important the interaction with the

text, when making the summary you are also practicing written expression,

grammar and vocabulary. You can write your opinion with your own words

to test your understanding.
