As we all know Practice makes us perfect, and this is the most ultimate thing you can do to increase your reading speed, just start reading and work on the weaker aspects of your reading skills. and once you master the basics you will be on your way to becoming a good reader
If yo believe you have some kind of problem, with your reading, here are a few of these potential problems. Lack of concentration can be a real problem ,concentration is an obvious problem for reading, This problem is one of the basic reading problems and is usually dealt with in most courses. Poor eye movement may cause some readers to shift their eyes to other directions and than go back to the book or paper to relocated the last point read.

Usually we start strong and begin to slow down aswe read on. This kind of problem typically creates a situation of going back to re-read some lines over and over again, or a need to read the same sentence a couple of times for lack of understanding or loosing the line of thought altogether.


Our skill is dependent of what we need, no matter what our problem is, we need to address the problem. To try and read faster, here are a few tips that would get you going. Think of reading as a ‘pick and choose’ activity, where you can choose to read the words and phrases that are critical to comprehension, and skip over the connective tissue. One major key in speed reading is filtering out all the words that has nothing to do with the subject and naturally, there a lot of them. All the connecting words, basically words that are there to connect one word with the other to make a sentence the “and” “it’s” and “and’s” have got to go, just make yourself blind to them, go over these words and do not dwell on reading or noticing them.

Practicing time reading is also good, set up a timer and see how much you read in one minute, and in five minutes. Try and honestly estimate how much did you get from the text make sure this is something you read for the first time when you try reading it second time , and try to beat yourself at this over and over again, until you start to feel that you have moved up one level.
Make a habit of reading regularly. Read English books, newspapers and magazines as you can get your hands on.Reading should be fun, so make sure the texts you choose are not so difficult for you. If the book or article you are reading is a hard you will get less interst in reading .Try to discuss a book you've enjoyed with other people.
Find an interest topic you like most and read all their books and articles . By doing this you will get used to the style As you read more books you will find it easier and easier.If you have a local library find out if they stock English books . You can also find some English translations of books you are already familiar with.
One of the most important practice you can do is Try reading things more than once. Read something and then read it again after few weeks/months later. You find find your understanding has improved.
Set a timer and run a reading race every day for two to four weeks. You do not have to spend more than ten minutes on this exercise. You may become frustrated, at first, by the fact that you cannot read as fast or remember as much as you would like. But keep reading you will attain your goal soo .
Don't try to read "the toughest" straight away. Save them for later, start with contemporary short stories. And don't forget, there are loads of excellent comics out there too. Experiment with different texts, and try to find books with text that has some questions about what you just read so you can apprise your understanding.
