How to improve reading

Although it is imperative to provide a means of educating illiterate people in South Africa, it is also important to improve reading skills. A higher level of reading and understanding literacy materials is necessary for individuals to access further development and higher learning facilities. Further education and training facilities will not accept learners or students who only have basic reading and writing skills as they will not able to follow the course material. Learning at a higher level requires a student to be able to absorb knowledge on their own as well as interpret the subject matter with only the assistance of a lecturer.
