    Benefits of extensive reading 

    Research has shown that there is a direct correlation between the amount students read and their future success.

    Benefits of extensive reading

    By establishing good reading habits and encouraging the use of critical thinking while reading, students will be set on a path that will pay huge dividends. When students are frequently given the opportunity to select reading material that appeals to their interest and offers the appropriate level of challenge, they are more likely to continue to do so, well beyond their years at school.

    Improve Communication

    Critical thinking activities encourage students to reflect on and discuss ideas, giving them confidence to talk about many different subjects in English. Topics include science, history, space travel, culture and much more!
