Power Reading

Duration
One Day

Aim

Power reading is not just about fast reading. It’s equally as much about comprehension, reducing fatigue, and not reading everything in the same way. By the end of this course, you will probably have doubled your effective reading rate (that’s a measure of speed and comprehension), and raised your reading “comfort level”.

Effort goes into teaching people to read when they are young, very little is done to advance them to the next level. That’s what Power Reading is designed to do.
