How to read sentences instead of single words
Learning to read sentences instead of words is the key to speed up reading. Most people can learn to do this in just over 2.5 hours. In that short time they can double their reading speed. Let’s learn how to do this in this article.
When you first learn to read, you learn to read words one letter at a time. For example, initially the dog is seen by your brain as a series of letters DO G. You sound each letter out loud and speak them to create the word dog.
The same can be done with the word hot. At first, it looks like three separate letters. However, when you put the letters together you get the word hot. This is where it starts to get interesting. What happens when you put the word hot in front of the word dog?
The word hot dog is not spicy nor is it a dog. Instead, your brain perceives these two separate words as a single unit of meaning. You are now reading a short sentence instead of individual words. Let’s look at another example that is even longer.
Let’s look at the name of this country. This country is called the United States of America. Notice that the county name consists of four different words: United, States, Of, and America. Your brain doesn’t look at these four separate words and feels overwhelmed. Instead, you see these four separate words as a single sentence, the name of the United States.
By training yourself to view larger and larger groups of words as individual sentences, you can easily see how your reading speed would dramatically increase. It is easy to learn and it only takes a few hours to achieve. Try it. You are going to like the results you experience.
