When talking about teaching English reading, many English teachers and learners will think of readings right away, kinds of passage, how to read,etc. But perhaps they have missed the basic steps to develop reading skills easily, properly and effectively.
In order to get the most effective English reading teaching, students must have a certain amount of knowledge before reaching the paragraph. Vocabulary and grammar are the two most important factors for reading English. Learners must be provided with a certain amount of vocabulary, as well as a fixed grammatical knowledge, so that when reading the text, the learner will not be confused by what is not understood.
Starting from interesting things
Reading is a skill that can be said to be boring because learners just focus on reading, so learners should start from interesting, attractive, amazing things so that they can both read and discover more new things, as a result, reading will become more exciting. Some people like to read the news, others like to read jokes, or others like to read information about inventions, so English reading skills teaching should also be diversified in terms of content and form of reading so that reading practicing becomes lively and less boring.
From short to long passage
Reading skill should be taught from short passages, so that learners can familiarize themselves with the scan skill and skim skill. In addition, short paragraphs do not cause feelings of boredom or frustration to the learners. Once they have mastered the skills, they can also practice reading with longer paragraphs and more information.
