Reading will always be a part of you as a learner. We all learn from many sources: from viewing films, looking at pictures, meeting other people, or simply living life and interacting with our environment. Of all the many sources available to us, reading is essential because it helps broaden the mind and give us more ideas.

This module on reading is divided into two parts. First, it starts off with looking for the main idea, then differentiating fact from opinion. It proceeds to making inferences, which can be viewed as part of opinion making.

In what ways can we develop our reading comprehension skills Understanding how prefixes and suffixes are constructed contributes to reading comprehension. This module offers two more skills: making inferences and looking for context clues. An easier way is to use Google or even use a dictionary.
