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.

What affects our reading ability?
• Clarity of purpose
• Familiarity with the subject and relate terminology
• The difficulty of the text, whether it’s well-written or well laid out
• Urgency and stress levels
• Mood, tiredness, physical conditions
• Vocabulary – the bigger your vocabulary, the faster you’ll be able to read
• Position of the book: keep the book at an angle (research shows that by optimizing the position of the book in relation to your eyes you can double the reading speed)

What slows down reading?
• Sub-vocalising – ‘reading with your ears’. The main reason people read at an average rate of 150-240 words per minute is because that is approximately the rate at which they speak.
• Vocalising (actually speaking out loud)
• Habit of regression / progression (jumping backwards and forwards)
• Small vocabulary
• Perfectionism: wanting to know ‘everything’ which is a self-defeating script for failure
• Inner critic: inner voice that stops you from noticing what is working
