Speed Reading

Reading is considered as the important things in our life and it is necessary to be proficient in it. Reading forms 80-90 percent of the culture that we gain. The progress level of the nations is related to the cultural level.

Speed Reading is a technique for reading texts at an extremely rapid rate with adequate comprehension. Gathering information is something all humans do naturally. So it’s only natural that once we learn to read, we want to start doing it faster so we can gather and absorb more information.

Speed Reading is seeing

The first step in reading anything is seeing the words. But how do you see words on the page when you read? Prior to the 1920s, researchers believed that people read one word at a time. To read, they thought, you moved your eyes left to right across the page, taking in one word after the other. Under this theory, fast readers were people who could identify and recognize words faster.

However, all but beginning readers have the ability to see and read more than one word at a time. As you move your eyes across the page, you jump ahead in fits and starts, taking in from one to five words at a time in quick glances, and the concept of how to speed read was founded in the First World War when the British air force discovered that there was some aircraft navigator couldn’t recognize the German aircraft forms from a proper distance.
