Speed Reading

The barriers to increasing reading speed

  • Regression: Going to the previous word to read it again. To stop it use a visual pacer. Underline the words that you read with your finger (in pc use your cursor.)

  • Word by Word Reading: Try to see a chunk of words at once and understand its means by a picture in your mind.

Just practice more to increase your reading speed.
