Learning to read in Language & Learning Posted May 4, 2010 · Report reply I dont really remember how I learned to read. XD;I was 4 at that time, I think, and I have very faint memories of my childhood overall. From what my mom told me, I take that she kept teaching me how to read until I could tell the contents of study book from top of my head (she caught me when asked me to read seperate words and I didnt remember which one was it >o> ) so she yelled some at me, bought me a new reading book and in the very same evening, I picked it up and started reading. Of course slowly at first, but I quickly picked the spped up. From that time, I havent had any problems with reading.
