  [00:00.01]What else do you think we could add to the course program to help with this reading problem?

[00:07.24]There's not really anything because it's my problem.

[00:10.28]I remember we were given long articles to read.

[00:13.31]We didn't like that but now I realise that reading 

[00:16.26]those long articleswas good preparation for the things I need to read now.

[00:20.58]Also,in class we regularly had speed-reading tasks to do,

[00:25.42]and we kept a record of our reading speed,

[00:28.41]so the teachers were encouraging us to work on that.

[00:31.34]That's true Spiros,but what we read could have been different.

[00:35.56]Sometimes in the English class I felt frustratedwhen 

[00:39.16]I had to read articles about the environment or health or education,

[00:44.01]because I wanted to concentrate on my own field,

[00:47.46]but we didn't read anything about engineering.

[00:51.00]So,I think I wasted some time learning vocabulary didn't need

[00:55.20]But surely the strategies you were taught for dealing with that vocabulary were helpful

[01:00.31]Yes,but psychologically speaking,

[01:03.10]I would have felt much better working on reading from my own field.What do you think Spiros?

[01:09.11]I agree;that would have helped my confidence too and I would have been more motivated.

[01:14.07]It was good though that we could work on our own topics when we wrote the research assignments.

[01:19.31]Okay,let's move on to writing now ...
