    To be honest with you guys, I hate reading because personally the books at the schools are so BORING so it just puts most of the pupils off.

    • JJ Wong
      August 2, 2013

      I have to agree with you some are boring, as it’s not in our interest list! May explore in topics that you like and read. In the process of learning and growing, one learns to figure out what he/she likes, thus grow and improve towards the direction he/she likes. I personally love to read self improvement, motivational stories, success stories, social media information and more. When you read what you love, you wouldn’t feel boring. :)

    Reading is my hobby. I will read some articles aloud in house myself in order to improve my spoken English, Listening Skills and Pronunciation. JJ Wong pl. describe about aloud reading in your words to further improve my spoken English through aloud Reading / Silent Reading.

      Hi Mounesh, thanks for your comment. In the past, I learn and improve my English speaking through listening to English songs, singing along reading the lyrics. That’s one of a great way for you to train your English especially listening and pronunciation too. Cheers. :)

    Great Knowledgeable post Mr. Wong

    Actually, I just started as I got inspired by reading one. My close friend gave me a book “How to Win friends and Influence People” and from there, I took up and became a book lover.

    Although, considering the fact that it’s the Internet world, especially the young generation prefers to read online books and magazines but book reading have its own curiosity and positivity.

    We receive a lot of positive energy by reading books sitting in open air. Moreover, it’s very good habit as it increases your knowledge in a channelized way, opens your mind and makes you think.

    Happy Reading..!!!

    When I was a kid I’m so excited to read a book but now I don’t know what happen to me can you give me some advice? because I really miss being a good reader when I was an high school student actually I love declamation.

    • JJ Wong
      August 30, 2014

      Hi Jamielyn, try rethink why do you so excited about reading book when you were a kid. Perhaps along the life journey, more and more exciting things come into life, that you no longer want to sit down and enjoy a good book.

      Start by seeking a book category that you’ll be interest on, and start to read bit by bit. You’ll enjoy the process of reading. :)
