How we read

How do we read a text? This is a question that scientists have been trying to answer for many years. A recent study demonstrates that our eyes don't move through the text smoothly from left to right, but they tend to lock on different letters of the same word. This finding may help teachers and psychologists understand the reading process, improve the way schools teach kids to read and devise strategies to help children with reading problems such as dyslexia. Read all about it in this article and then, if you are preparing for the CAE, here's an activity to practise for the English in Use (paper 3).
