Speed reading is the art of Reading at a fast pace which must be understandable with zero sloppiness. Reading at some high speed can prove difficult. For some, it is just smooth as silk. I ask myself how they do it sometimes and I got some answers. Down the line you’d find all it need is principles. And these principles I’ll share with you will show you how to speed read.

  • Understand the subject: All areas of life have their language or regular jargon. At high schools they call it Register. It’s more of the kind of language or terms spoken most in that area. Take science for instance, on scientific topics, you could hear experiment, outcomes, hypothesis, theories, etc. When you adjust to the kind of term used in context with what you’re reading then you are well underway of picking up speed.
  • Adjust your eyes: This method has proven effective, personally used by me. I had this issue of stuttering, repeating a word twice before moving on. Over time, I found out using my eyes effectively by looking at the next word immediately after the one I pronounced. With no hesitation, you will get a hand of it. Always Remember to look at the next word once you’re pronouncing. This saves milliseconds and adding them up. It does save a chunk of time.
  • Respect puntuations: punctuations rather give our written words that flavour that makes it sound understandable. Major errors ive noticed when speed reading is the partial or total neglect pr punctuations. Imagine going on and on with out no breaks or pause. When you are speed reading, you have to follow the pattern. Following the pattern gives creates a flow. And that flow is the speed. No hitch, no cracks.
  • Relax: No reader is of good vibe of he is perceived to be rushing. This rush of words makes the reading unnatural and somewhat uninteresting. Perhaps a deep breath or two just before you start can calm the nerves. I feel this deals directly with the mind, if you will agree. So when you speed read, relax, I advice to be attentive. And remember, you’re only speed reading and not in a rap battle.

The whole idea of speed reading is to communicate in a fast pace. Where all you say is heard and spoken in the right tone. As you dash through the words it becomes easier and every time you do it, it becomes part of you.
