  1. get the reader and a dictionary with you (smartphones are also welcome)

  2. prepare a bloc or notepad, a pencil to underline words you don ́t know
  3. relax and start by having a look at the title and the author of the reader
  4. copy the tittle and the author in your bloc
  1. read some information about the author and the story (@Wikipedia or any other Encyclopedia)
  2. do not try to read 40 pages in a day, but read little by little, chapter after chapter, page after page. Make a note of what you read [copy page number and one or two ideas]
  3. it is impossible to read a book without looking up for the meanings of unknown words (verbs, nouns, adjectives, adverbs, connectors). YOU WILL HAVE TO USE A DICTIONARY!
  4. most readers provide a glossary of words (mini-dictionary of difficult expressions) Look for that glossary!
  5. understand what you read
  6. keep a diary of your reading in order to remember the plot of the story.
  7. focus on grammar and vocabulary
  8. enjoy your readings
