Reading Hard Words

* Long words or less common words often cannot be read at a glance. They must be read letter by letter.

* If you work too hard reading each letter, you may forget the meaning of the thought.

* You may want to skip some hard words as you read, or go back and read them at the end of a thought.

* For example, you may want to read:

“Mr. Tochioka from Chatanika walked toward the crowd.” as: “Mr. T from C walked toward the crowd.”
