Reading newspapers is great reading practice for language learners looking to improve. Though it can be difficult at first, it can be extremely useful for creating the habit of “reading something in English, every day.” For many people, the thought of sitting down, reading, and analyzing something in another language seems like a chore, or study. This negative attitude can make it difficult to study and learn.
Pushing through this wall of dread is the first step to becoming a stronger reader and language student. For me, it becomes easier if I can find an article about something I am interested in, or an event I already know about. From there, I can go into the reading with a concentration on grammar, vocabulary, and expressions. By reducing the ambiguity and refining the focus to the language, I feel my ability to take away lessons from the reading improves.
How do you study in your daily life? Is there a particular thing, article, or periodical you like to read when you study?
