ORAL READING FLUENCY – READ, THINK AND LEARN ENGLISH
I feel incredibly happy to get back to you with one of my favourite topics in English which I wished to share with you. I am here with it today. It is all about ORAL READING FLUENCY.
So What is ORAL READING FLUENCY?
SILENT READING could help you to enjoy, it gifts you the joy of reading and peace of mind, along with inheriting knowledge. Well, that could be the essence of reading.
HOW CAN ORAL READING HELP YOUR ENGLISH FLUENCY
Reading aloud is a little bit of personal stuff to be done but a trick which is far more beneficial than silent reading. We could even do it if we had kids at home, that is fun actually.
It is of course fascinating to know about the benefits of oral reading and it’s impact on your English communication. When we read aloud you tend to improve your word recognition and reading comprehension obviously. Fluency is all about our capability to speak or read rapid, accurately with the apt expression. This is wholesomely achievable when you read aloud.
Oral reading is a prerequisite to comprehension. Oral reading is one strategy where you have the opportunity and space to think and understand better, though we all are aware there are several dimensions to develop any language skill in specific fluency.
Fluency in any language involves the process of organising the words in your head and saying the words using your speech organs. Oral reading isolates these two steps and makes the process of gaining fluency much more easier, because you just have got to read what is written on a piece of paper and you don’t need to organise the words in your mind.
How to practise oral reading?
Oral reading is good for any level Language learners, nothing specific. Speaking any language is like playing any instrument, you need to train your tongue, lips and your speech organs to achieve fluency. This you can do well and train up with Oral reading.
It helps to reduce stuttering, stammering…
The ways or rather steps in practising oral reading
* Pick up any text or article to begin with quite an easy one
* Then try to read that aloud
* Then increase your speed.
* Now after you increase your reading speed you must ensure that you are reading smoothly and clearly
* You can further move on to the step of recording whatever you have read aloud
* Then listen to your recording. This helps you to ensure whether you have read it well, fluent and confident.
* Then correct your mistakes or pronunciation
* If you find your reading pace poor you can improve on that too.
There is yet another alternative to these procedures you can listen to a piece of article read out by someone else or native speaker and then try to repeat that content aloud after listening, just loud.
