There are many objectives of reading a language. The main objective is reading with comprehension which means that while reading, the student should also understand the meaning of the language text. While as the students have to be prepared to read English with a speed, they should generally understand the meaning also. It is the duty of a good teacher that he understands the importance of reading skills and he effective methods of delivering these skills. All these aspects have been discussed in this book. The author is grateful to the British Council Library where from many books on reading skills have been consulted.
