have the student draw images for each sentence or paragraph. This process not only helps them to understand, but it also adds a creative outlet to the learning process.

4. Increase your vocabulary: One of the best ways to increase your understanding of the English language is to increase your vocabulary. Make flashcards with new words and phrases as you read or take time to practice online. There are tons of online English vocabulary tools to help you learn and memorize.

5. Practice with fun activities: Learning should be fun, and reading English can be enjoyable if you mix it up with some fun activities. Incorporate the reading into a game or create a scavenger hunt. You could also turn the reading into a challenge. For every page they read, reward them with something fun like a movie night.

No matter what your reading level is, learning to read English can be one of the most challenging parts of mastering the language. With the right tools and a bit of creativity, it can also be a fun and educational experience. So don’t be afraid to shake things up and find new and innovative ways to make learning English more enjoyable.
