Methods aiming at improving speed reading skills

Shortly before the ECCE December examinations, on Tuesday, 11 November 2008, faculty and students from the Upper Intermediate level and ECCE Prep classes participated in a 2-hour workshop on methods to improve their speed reading skills. After the workshop, students were able to: develop a systematic approach to enhancing their reading comprehension skills; become familiar with the steps of the reading process; become aware of the significance of the reading environment; get to know various reading styles; recognize reading rate reduction factors; calculate words per minute, reading rate, and its significance; use speed reading techniques and reading improvement strategies to successfully tackle reading comprehension exam questions. The workshop was organized by the English Language Program and was conducted by Mr. Yiannis Petropoulos, Director of the Writing Program at the Hellenic American University.
