Don't read this 别读这篇文章
Made you look, didn't I? That's the beauty of the written word-it can draw
you in and make you curious to know more. We've come a long way from ancient
manuscripts to electronic documents on the Internet. But written words have
always been a powerful medium of communication and a source of learning. So
how do you make the most of those written words? By reading, of course. And
in a second language, that's no easy task. 我反而让你想要一探究竟了吧！这就是文字之美，它不但可以吸引你的注意，也让你好奇得想要知道更多。自古老的手卷到如今网络上的电子文件，真是一条漫漫长路。但自古至今，文字一直都是有力的传媒，也是一项学习的管道。所以，你如何善用文字呢？当然是靠阅读了。然而用第二语言来阅读，绝不是件容易的事。

To make your job a little easier, here are some reading strategies that you
may find useful:
1. Previewing. Look over the entire text before diving in. If it's a book,
look at the table of contents. Read the introduction to get a general idea of
what the author is writing about. If it's a magazine or newspaper article, look
at the title or headline, the pictures and the captions to prepare you for what
you'll be reading.
2. Scanning. Sometimes you're only looking for specific information, like
a phone number or an address. If so, don't waste time reading the whole text.
3. Making inferences. You can often draw conclusions about things that are
not clearly stated in the text. This is called "reading between the lines."
4. Looking for the main idea. Even when you don't grasp everything, you can
still find the main point. Think: What is the author really trying to say?
5. Summarizing. Try to make a brief mental summary that gives the general
idea of the text.

One more tip: Read at your own level. Of course, to give yourself a challenge,
you might occasionally try to read something just beyond your current language
By the way, I'm glad you ignored the title and read this anyway.
