  • due to ice cream eyes Hi James in England.

  • That was for Eddie Murphy.

  • And that line comes from the movie Delirious, which is hilarious.

  • In fact, the reason why he used delirious is because if you love so much, it's almost like you go crazy.

  • Delirious.

  • Anyway.

  • So, are you ready?

  • Yeah, I'm going to teach you a lesson today.

  • Actually, it's in response.

  • Response means I'm doing this back to something that was said about reading skills.

  • I did a earlier video Go check it on reading comprehension.

  • That video was basically to help you to understand it wasn't about doing it for tests or anything special.

  • It was for you at home by yourself trying to understand.

  • And it's valid, which means true.

  • And it's a good video.

  • This is to help you, isn't it?

  • It's the next not access it's in addition to Okay, this will help you in a different way.

  • So for those of you people who are wondering, how can I do this on a test without a dictionary?

  • This is crazy method.

  • You miss the point.

  • That was to help you just get better reading this one.

  • I'm gonna try and help you do?

  • Two things.

  • Number one, go Foster number two, improving reading skills and number three magically because, like it's magically delicious.

  • I want to actually have you enjoyed the experience of reading.

  • That's right, boys and girls.

  • I'm going to do what they couldn't do in school.

  • Yeah, right.

  • Anyway, let's go to the board first, reading skills that work these skills will work.

  • The only thing that that the only reason they won't work is if you don't use them.

  • So I'm gonna tell you to use them now.

  • Now, part of this is for if you're in school, If you're at home studying by yourself in our farm country where you can't get to school, don't worry.

  • You can still apply this.

  • And I just use the word, uh, test and for school for people who are gonna be taking aisles or talk or Tofel that maybe you in the future as well.

  • So don't throw out the baby with the bathwater, which is an English expression for for saying don't get rid of everything because you're not happy about something.

  • Okay?

  • So just keep in mind that if you can't use it now directly, you will be able to later.

  • Okay, first for tests and class.

  • What I want to teach you is active reading skills.

  • I was actually by the Cornell.

  • I have a website, and I was checking out how they were teaching university students on.

  • I found this to be a very effective way and I believe will work for you.

  • A lot of times people take information impassively.

  • That means they sit there and they hope that something magic happens.

  • If I keep looking at the page, the page will start to actually speak on.

  • I'll understand that's not going to happen.

  • In order for you to get better at reading, we need to be active or activate our brains and minds.

  • First thing we're gonna do that is when you start reading something.

  • It doesn't matter if it's a page or if it's a book magazine, comic book, Playboy.

  • Yes, I said it.

  • What you want to do is ask questions, asking questions, informs your brain what to look for.

  • What's important, right?

  • The title is on something about history of man.

  • Then it's about history.

  • It also could be about science.

  • It might be about psychology, but it's probably not about cars, right?

  • So ask yourself, w five questions.

  • And in this case, it might be Why is this important?

  • How has this affected the world?

  • Why did my teacher give this to me or what Do I have to learn from this?

  • What am I expected to learn from this thes questions?

  • As I said, we'll give you the ability to inform your brain.

  • You must look for this information and it will actively look for it.

  • Okay?

  • It also save you time because it will say, you know, this information doesn't help me with what I want, so I can put it away, or I'm not going to read any of this information at all.

  • I'll get another book next break down.

  • The introduction, the introduction, Um, actually have a video on that.

  • So if you're not too sure, please watch the introduction video.

  • The introduction usually has three parts to it.

  • It has a topic or subject what the actual book or essay is about.

  • It has main ideas what the author or the writer will actually talk about.

  • And it also usually has a thesis.

  • I'm going to say this basically a thesis is an opinion or an action statement what you should do or what the writer thinks is true.

  • You know what they agree with Don't disagree with.

  • Okay, So you wanna look at this, break these down and just write a sentence for each The subject?

  • Is this the main ideas?

  • Air?

  • This, this and this and the author's opinion or action statement?

  • Is this okay?

  • Once again, this helps you skim what you need.

  • Because once you have the topic, you know what you're talking about.

  • You have the main ideas, and you know their opinion.

  • You don't have to read what we call fluff or filler.

  • Ah, lot of times when somebody wants to sell a book, for instance, the eye in the sky God only knows who would read this 20 pages air.

  • Excellent.

  • Then the author says I need to make 252 so they just add pages of nothing.

  • The moon was red and glowing in the glorious sky above.

  • It doesn't add to the story, but it does add to the cost of the book.

  • Okay, so what we want to dio is we want to know because I don't have time.

  • I've been doing a test or I'm in a class.

  • I don't have time to read the filler.

  • I want to get to it.

  • Boom.

  • Okay, so this will help you once again help your brain.

  • This tells you what to look for by the questions for what I'm supposed to learn.

  • Then this tells me what I can skim.

  • There's a myth in reading that you have to read everything in every word you don't.

  • You have to get what's important.

  • Another word is pertinent.

  • Pregnant means important.

  • Okay, this will help you with getting what's important and ignoring what's not important for you.

  • Next, finally summarize each chapter in two parts.

  • I'm missing something here because it's so important.

  • Instead of putting in a box, I want to actually talk to you, and I want you to listen and I want you to get it.

  • Thistle is the PS resistance.

  • This is what makes everything work.

  • The gas in the car.

  • You know, the sing in my voice and that sparkle in my eye when we summarize.

  • It's not enough to write out the words you've done that kind of already.

  • I need you to do it in two parts Have you ever talked to a girlfriend boyfriend?

  • And they say certain words and you realize there's what they're saying and there is what they mean when we're writing, there's what it says and that's the information you need because you need to give it to someone else and there's what it does.

  • What is the function of that chapter?

  • What is the function of that paragraph?

  • Is it giving you evidence for something saying this is why it's true?

  • Or is it giving you information?

  • Or is it introducing a new idea?

  • That's one of the parts.

  • What does this paragraph?

  • What does this chapter do?

  • Is it presenting an idea, or is it giving the evidence?

  • I need to know that.

  • Okay, so I need to summarize not only what it says, but what it does that's so important.

  • Because when you know what it does, you can know what fits in the whole structure and know what you need to know faster.

  • Okay, now this is finally summarized.

  • I lied to you.

  • I had to learn this.

  • I studied it, and now I'm teaching you.

  • I know it's right, because in teaching you in my brain, I'm going.

  • I know this.

  • And I don't know that this is the big key.

  • If you really want to do well now, of course, this isn't for a test.

  • Because of the test, you can't turn to the person beside you.

  • Say, dude, do you know what the teachers asking?

  • Do you know what this means?

  • They'll kick you out.

  • But in the classroom a good way of testing.

  • How much you've learned Engage someone, Teach If you're teaching them something and your old sudden going 00 man, It was out, and I don't remember.

  • It's because you have to read it again.

  • Remember I told you about the other video about comprehension.

  • Check it out, please.

  • Okay, But if you could explain everything and get the person to understand, it means you've understood what you've read.

  • This is great skill to do in a classroom for a test.

  • All the other ones, the first ones I've written on the board are extremely important.

  • Okay, so follow them.

  • You'll get a great benefit from it.

  • Now.

  • All this is great.

  • You're saying, but James, I need to improve.

  • This is cool.

  • I'll do on the test.

  • But I need to go fast Now what can I dio?

  • I'm gonna tell you right now to generally improve your reading.

  • Here are the points I'm going to give you Do these points every day.

  • 15 minutes is all that is required.

  • You're gonna do fantastically and then this will be even better.

  • You ready?

  • Let's go.

  • You almost caught me.

  • Do do, do, do, do, do do do do do mystery, Okay?

  • Dude loves being in the picture and he wants you to improve.

  • So he showed up just for you.

  • Okay, first of all, get a book that's easy to read.

  • Okay, You see what I'm saying?

  • Get this book.

  • Mystery is not happy that I'm making fun of this book.

  • But I'm just saying Get something easy.

  • Don't get something complicated or something you don't want to read.

  • You cannot improve by doing this.

  • Get something you like.

  • Okay, Next, get a timer a time.

  • Where is a clock?

  • That will go thinking ding, ding ding.

  • When a certain amount of time is finished and specifically when you need one for 15 minutes, an egg timer or oclock watch.

  • I don't have mine on.

  • They usually have timers on them for running, so you can time it.

  • What I want you to do is then when you're doing this, read.

  • So when you're reading, you're gonna use what I call the finger method.

  • You're gonna take your two fingers, put them on the outside of a sentence like so and read out.

  • Try not to go.

  • Same speeds.

  • Try and see the whole sentence.

  • If that's too difficult, try.

  • This one is easy.

  • Just go like this.

  • Get a timer, Follow your finger.

  • Do not follow your eyes.

  • Follow your finger.

  • Make the finger move and follow it as fast as you can.

  • Okay, now next closed the book that wasn't so hard, Right?

  • 15 minutes.

  • Move your finger.

  • Close the book to really improve reading Fost without understanding is not very smart.

  • So what I want you to do is I want you to understand.

  • And here's what we dio paraphrase paraphrase means to take something and make it simpler.

  • Find another way of saying it, so it's easier to understand.

  • It's similar to what I said to you over here.

  • Teach someone else, but you're going to actually teach yourself what you cannot paraphrase or say out loud is information you don't have.

  • So what we want to do is make sure we understand it.

  • And I can say it because if I say and I go, yeah, that's right.

  • I got it right.

  • Then I understand it.

  • So not only did I read quickly, but I understood the information.

  • And now this is sort of like taking a shower or a bath or deodorant.

  • Repeat every day.

  • This is not something you do once a week.

  • Every day, 15 minutes, you'll start noticing improvement.

  • Try and go for one sentence.

  • Improvement to a paragraph each day.

  • After a while, you'll find that you're not doing just one page but two pages.

  • You're doing five.

  • When I said use the finger method, I forgot to mention count your pages.

  • So when you quite that book or you finish the book, you have five pages today.

  • Get five pages in one sentence tomorrow.

  • The most important part is follow these steps and do it every day.

  • Okay, Now, look, I've got to go.

  • You do this and leave a message in the YouTube.

  • We've got a YouTube subscription or on Facebook and sign up for us.

  • Sorry.

  • YouTube we have Facebook.

  • And in Vitt.

  • Where's Yngve?

  • It got to find some room.

  • We've got w w w dot ing as an English vivid as a video dot com.

  • Well, we have this less than others.

  • That will certainly tickle your tummy.

  • See Mr E again and improve your skills like reading.

  • Thank you very much.

  • See you soon.
