I Don't Read Because I Hate Using Dictionaries

Don't use dictionaries! Or at least don't overuse them.

It is important to find a book that you can read relatively easily (see previous post about graded readers). While you read don't look up words in the dictionary, because it will spoil the fun of reading! Try to guess the words from the context! Only look it up if it is holding you up or you really want to know what it means. You'll remember that word for life!
However, it can help to pause from time to time and look back, just to check you are clear about what is happening.
