Most university courses require a great deal of reading and students with well-developed reading skills find it easier to cope with the demands of higher education.
The Reading Development Centre provides reading enrichment with a computerised reading program that builds reading fluency (learning to read at a fast pace while maintaining excellent comprehension). The Reading Development Centre administers the reading development component of ALDA/E 112/122 – a compulsory academic literacy module for all first-year students and students registering at the University for the first time.
Reading development is also available to senior students who want to brush up on their reading proficiency.
As a first-year student of ALDE122, I would like to thank the reading lab for the help I received with my reading. I struggled at forst and couldn't read quickly, but through the support and the lessons I made very good progress. Thank you, Reading Lab team.
(Reading speed tripled and comprehension doubled in three months.)
Well, I am grateful. The reading lessons have improved my reading speed. It really helps!
(Reading speed improved from 85words per minute to 280+, with 90%+ comprehension, within two months)
