    Hi Shashi

    I am glad that you also decided to make your reading report and count how many words you’ve read. 🙂

    I have to say that you are certainly a good competitor for me.

    Hi Tony!!
    yes, certainlly this activity pushes learners to try heard. When I have decided to count the words, I wasn’t expected that I have read so much. I think that by counting words that you have read in a week will keep an eye on your progress and you will be self motivated for reading more.

    Tony, I’ve also decided to read some penguin reader’s books and some other books. I think it will help improve our comprehension skill as well as our vocabulary. I will try to find some graded books from local library and whenever I will find some leisure time I will invest it on reading. Actually I am keen reader and love to read but I have never read the books for learning purpose. Now I will do that.

    Great!! Shashi

    Penguin reader offers lots of interesting movie novels and fictions. I am sure that you will love reading them!! 🙂 Reading some books which is lower your level is enjoyable and relaxed. Most importantly, you can naturally train your comprehension by reading these easy books.

    Maybe one day we can create some discussions to discuss some penguin reader that we read.

    Good luck to your reading adventure!! 🙂
