Students will learn how to preview texts for a quick overview of the main points. The importance of pre-viewing texts and how to get the maximum value from this skill before reading the entire text.

Students will learn through timing their reading, with and without using the techniques learned, and checking gains in speed, whilst retaining comprehension. Also, highlighted is how to adapt to various texts, knowing when to slow down to gain comprehension with complex texts or speed up to get through other texts quicker.

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
