									                 HOW TO READ A
           FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEXTBOOK

                      Use the formula: P3R

P = PREVIEW   Look over the chapter to be read.
              Check for new vocabulary/grammatical structure/culture.
              Notice what new material has been introduced.

R = RELATE    When possible, relate new vocabulary to previously
              learned words.
              Be aware of similarities in grammar and construction
              between English and the language you are studying.

R = READ      Read each sentence from the beginning to end without
              looking up words.
              Try to guess the meaning of new words.
              Look up words to verify your guesses only after you have read
              each sentence and cannot make sense of the meaning.
              Read out loud: This gives you additional oral practice.
              Reread the selections until you know them.
              Rereading is essential.

R = REVIEW    Learn the vocabulary.
              Grammatical structures and verbs given in each chapter should
              be memorized.
              Work with another student to review.
              Drill as often as necessary.
