EDUCATIONAL Q&A VIDEO 12: READING FOR PLEASURE

Vaiva, Sept. 21, 2018

Reading is a surefire way to develop a plethora of skills, from improving one's spelling and creative writing to developing social understanding and broadening knowledge of a variety of topics. While compulsory texts studied at school may not be every student's cup of tea, this should not be a discouragement from reading in general. Therefore, our lead English tutor Milda Sabunaite would like to share with you her thoughts about reading for your own pleasure and the benefits this habit may bring.
