One of the oldest, tried-and-true methods of language learning is simply reading. Here are some tips for helping you do that.
1. Connect to your interests.
Try to connect your interests in your first language with your learning of English. For example, if you love to read fantasy novels in Chinese, you should try to find one that interests you in English.
2. Read a movie!
Another idea is to read a novel of a movie that you really love. Perhaps the novel was written before the movie, or it was written after the movie came out because of the film's popularity. This is called a novelization. These are fun books to read because if you know the story already, it will be easier for you to read in a second language. Also, if you loved the film, you will have a high motivation to read the book, even if the vocabulary is difficult.
3. Read short stories.
Sometimes you don't have time to read a whole novel. Here is a great blog of touching short stories that you can read in your free time. In fact, this whole website is great and could be added to your favorites.
4. Keep a vocabulary journal.
No matter what you choose to read in English, keep a vocabulary journal - a continuous list of new words and phrases that you learn. This will help you learn faster, and then later on, you can use this vocabulary in your speaking.
5. Read everywhere!
These days, almost every student has a smartphone. I tell students that your smartphone is a portable language classroom. You can learn English everywhere you go. For reading, get an e-reader app like Kindle and download books that interest you. Then you can read them any time and anywhere you go (except in my class :-)). Use the highlight function to highlight new words that you don't know. Then you can add them to your vocabulary journal when you have free time.
I wish you all the best in your reading adventures and especially in learning English!
