A lot of people ask us what the difference is between SmartReading and speed-reading. The difference is crucial, as you will see from the explanation below. Speed-reading - faster "talking" When you read normally, you pronounce or voice the words you read in your mind. In the case of speed-reading, you simply have to talk faster. Thus, you force your brain to hear the words faster. At the same time you also want to understand, analyse and remember the intentions of the author, and in order to do so, you jump back and forth in the book to check your accuracy. [...]
Yes. SmartReading works in all languages.
Yes, you will read and understand everything. You are certainly not going to learn to go through the texts diagonally. Many speed-reading courses teach you to read headlines, skip parts, read diagonally, read faster by talking faster in your mind and so on. Our patented method will train you to read more visually. You use your conscious short-term memory to understand what you read. Memorizing and reproducing information is carried out by a combination of your short and long-term memory. You will find that you gain more trust in your long-term memory thanks to SmartReading. You can depend on the fact [...]
I do not only want to go through the text diagonally. Will I really understand everything after taking the SmartReading course?Paul van der Velde2020-03-27T16:16:49+00:00
SmartReading lets you read everything down to the smallest detail. Your conscious short-term memory is used for the comprehension of the information. SmartReading helps you become familiar with the part of your brain that recognizes and remembers. This is your long-term memory, which operates very reliably. When you decide to do the training, the difference between the two will become clear in several exercises. SmartReading is unique and is not just a speed-reading training.
Yes, we measure that during the training. At the start of the training course we carry out a baseline measurement reading test. This determines your speed and comprehension. The speed is measured in words per minute and the comprehension in percentages.
SmartReading works in all languages. One condition however, is that you already have an acceptable range of vocabulary of the language you are reading. You should have some knowledge of the language including basic grammar. If basic vocabulary is lacking, SmartReading does not work. If however, a basis is there, the learning of the new language is even faster, thanks to SmartReading.
Do you have to be relaxed? That seems impossible to me looking at the stress atmosphere in the office.Paul van der Velde2020-03-27T16:06:26+00:00
Most definitely. The stress factor is a key element in the training. We have several techniques that will teach you to cope with stress factors at work. These techniques have an effect on various areas. Reduced neck strains, reduced stomach complaints and less overall stress.
No, it is not possible to learn SmartReading in one day. A one-day training Course, will teach you maybe to read 2 times faster, which still is very slow. After the one-day course you will not have gained the experience of reproducing an entire book on a detailed level. You will, however, be able to do this after the online training we offer.
The differences between how you currently read and SmartReading: Reading: You “say / think” the words in your mind (like pronouncing the words in your mind). SmartReading: You will read more and more visually. No more saying/thinking the words in your head. Reading: You do not read faster than you speak. SmartReading: You read from multiple lines up to whole paragraphs at a time. Reading: Your reading average is now between 250 and 300 words per minute. SmartReading: You read as least 1,500 words per minute. Reading: Your mind wanders off and you think about other things, which makes you jump [...]
