    Good luck to you and me then! In the last contest, I got extremely sick with the flu so I was focused on getting better and basically dropped 20 spots, leaving me in 44th place.

    I’d do it if I didn’t have to become a twit…

    Also, my reading speed still isn’t all that fast. =(

    I just signed up for Twitter specifically for the contest. Other than that, I’ve never used it. And have no plans to… :P

    My reading speed is turtle slow as well. But I think that’s the point! To get practice and to push yourself so that you get faster. :) Join in, Joel!

    @winterpromise31: What are you reading?

    Also, does it matter how much you understand? Do you just keep “reading” till the end of a page, even if you don’t pick up much of what’s going on?

    Extensive reading, to be exact, refers to reading large volumes of material at or very slightly above one’s comprehension level, aiming for overall understanding of the work instead of worrying about every detailed twist of grammar or every word. This approach stresses learning from context and getting used to the language by massive exposure instead of understanding things point by point. It does not replace its opposite, intensive reading (in which a difficult point or a sentence well above the learner’s level is studied in detail); but rather is a vital supplement. In fact, intensive reading and study should instead be viewed as a supplement to extensive reading, which turns the normal classroom paradigm on its head.
