Speed reading techniques increase the speed at which you can read while still understanding. Speed reading is similar to conventional reading in that you scan your eyes down the page, consciously taking in information as you go. However, the major difference between speed reading and conventional reading is that with speed reading you learn to ignore irrelevant or repeated information as you look for ‘hot spots’ or ‘trigger words’ (key information).
On our speed reading course in London, you will not only learn all the speed reading techniques and speed reading tips which enable you to read faster, but also the five-step photoreading process (of which speed reading is just one part), plus additional reading techniques and strategies which you can personalise to create your own strategic reading program ideally suited to your particular needs.
