Most of us read – a lot!

Conversations that used to take place face-to-face now often happen via email or messaging apps. We receive breaking news stories straight to our smart phones. Our social media feeds are endlessly updated, and there are discussion blogs and forums on every subject you can imagine. Sometimes, we may even read a book!

But there are only so many hours in the day, so how can we keep up with all of this information? One way is to learn how to read more efficiently. This involves a combination of skills, including reading faster, deciding what we really need to read, and knowing how much detail we need to understand when we’re reading it.

In this Skillbook session, you’ll learn:

  • Techniques to increase your reading speed and comprehension.
  • Key reading strategies, and when to apply them.
  • How to retain key information from what you’ve read.

All of this can enable you to read faster and more effectively.
