В данной записи мы попытаемся поговорить о пользе чтения — Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
Тема, вроде бы, простая, но для полноты ответа иногда требуется тему и расширить. С последним надо быть осторожным, так как «не по теме» и «лексические повторы», которые могут «похоронить» любую звездочку на устном высказывании.
Сочинение по теме Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body
To begin with I’d like to say that any skill needs practicing. Even if we are good at doing something we should brush up what we already know and can. Otherwise our skills and knowledge of something deteriorate. If we don’t use something we lose it. Reading is a perfect form of training for one’s mind. While reading we learn something new. By reading we not only become knowledgeable but improve our spelling. To be precise we should differentiate between reading in your mother tongue or in the original. As for the former while reading in your mother tongue our awareness of the world we live in is heightened. It does not matter whether we read for pleasure or we do it on purpose. As for the latter reading is really useful when it comes to learning a foreign language. While reading we not only get to know new words and phrases but explore how they are authentically used. As I mentioned before when we read we learn hot to write the words we acquired while watching TV or listening to audiobooks. I think that listening to audiobooks is as useful as reading paper ones. It does come in handy when you are a bookworm with poor eyesight. In this case audiobooks seem to be the only solution to satisfy the thirst for reading books. Apart from the kinds of reading listed above there is one more which deserves our attention. I mean reading dictionaries. I am not pulling your leg. I mean explanatory ones. While looking through dictionary entries we learn how words are used in their natural surrounding. Lets take the example of my favourite dictionary. It is a Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English. Using the applied cds we can find thousands of sentences providing us with examples of authentic usage. Moreover we can listen to the same sentences read by native speakers. To cut a long story short, reading is what educates us in numerous ways and it’s up to you whether to use this wonderful opportunity or not.
