Speed reading is the process of rapidly recognizing and absorbing phrases or sentences on a page all at once, rather than identifying individual words. Effective speed reading is a balance between pace and comprehension.
Most people read at an average rate of 250 words per minute (wpm), though some are naturally quicker than others. However, the ability to speed read could mean that you double this rate.
The amount of information that we process seems to be growing by the day, whether it's emails, reports and websites at work, or social media, books and magazines at home. We probably feel pressure to get through this information more quickly, so that we can "stay in the loop" and make informed decisions.
This course will explore some of the skills that you can use to accelerate your reading. A must course for any student who will be preparing for 11 Plus or in Key Stage 3.
