Adult Reading in a Foreign Language: A Necessary Competence for Knowledge Society
Guerra-Treviño, Marta Elena
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual International Conference of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (11th, Plovdiv, Bulgaria, May 14-17, 2013)
This paper presents several "tips" for Spanish speaking adults who start a reading comprehension course in English. The document is the product of my twenty-five years of experience as a language teacher. By using these practical pieces of advice, learners understand the differences between English and their own language, are able read, and to produce their personal reading strategies in order to succeed when reading English texts, and simultaneously, they feel their learning stress is diminished. By making the necessary adjustments, these reading hints may be applied to different languages especially Romance language teachers, who may create their own version to help students in their reading task.
