• Unit 2: Reading Actively – What Does Reading Tell Me?

    Unit 2 introduces you to the active reading strategies of skimming and questioning. These strategies help you better understand what you read. Along with using context clues and making predictions, which we discussed in ESL001: Beginning Lower-Intermediate English as a Second Language, knowing how to use these strategies will help you comprehend, or understand, more of what you read. In this unit, you will practice skimming job ads and questioning a story to see how it improves your reading skills.

    Completing this unit should take you approximately 2 hours.
