 Task 3:  The Guardian Newspaper Reading Task

Task 3 Steps: 

The Guardian Newspaper:
1 choose the topics you’re interested in first, then do the following.
2 Divide the big article into portions. Choose a portion of the article (150-250 words) to read to get an overview of the main topic and its ideas.
3 Read the same portion again (150-250 words); then, look for new words (up to 10 max). Write them into your notebook.
4 Look up the new words in the dictionary. There might be many meanings–try to see the best meaning that fits the context of the article you’re reading.
5 read the same portion again after you have studied the new words and understood their meanings.
6 What if there are more than 10 new words in the same portion you choose? Then, take a smaller portion (50 up to 100 words to study)
7 Repeat the previous steps until you finish the whole article. It doesn’t matter if you take one week to finish one article.
