Improving your reading and writing skills also goes hand in hand with developing your communication skills. The more you read and write, the more you broaden your vocabulary and are able to articulate concepts accurately and more effectively to others. Increasing your ability to communicate also helps make you a better worker or student.
Reading and Writing
The relationship between reading and writing is a bit like that of the chicken and egg 🐣. Which came first is not as important as the fact that without one the other cannot exist. Basically put: reading affects writing and writing affects reading.
Research has found that when students read extensively they become better writers. Reading a variety of genres helps you to learn text structures and language that you can then transfer to your own writing. In addition, reading provides you with prior knowledge that you can use in your writing!
This is why we will focus on both reading and writing during the following weeks!
Read a novel
Write an essay
You will be working in groups and pairs as well as individually!
