What do students, engineers, managers, scientists, politicians and lawyers all have in common? They all read, seeking out bits of information hidden in countless papers. It is one of the most important ways in which we gather information. Newspapers, books, novels, WWW-documents, and so on, present information in a linear way, because it is one of the most versatile and uniform ways to store and distribute data.

Speedreading

user type

User types are respectively: average adult reader, average experienced reader, trained speedreader, expert speedreader. These are plotted against the number of words read per minute.

The speed at which we can process this information is mainly limited by our reading speed. Speedreading is a technique intended to improve your reading speed. As shown in the graph above, doubling your reading speed is not beyond reach:

Reading fast is of course not everything. You also have to absorb the information otherwise the effort is a waste of time. Therefore the measurement of your reading speed is not only the number of pages you can read in a certain amount of time, but also what you remember of the text.

If you think it is impossible to read 150 pages of text in less than 45 minutes and know what was in it, think again… Speedreading will help you train your memory and improve your concentration.

After the training (3 days) you will be able to:

  • read more quickly and more flexibly
  • counteract “bad reading habits” more effectively
  • make better and more sensible notes
  • recognise the essence of a text more quickly
  • process a large document more efficiently (text, book, course)
  • maintain your developed reading skills in the long term
