When it comes to learning a topic thoroughly and effectively, it is crucial for people to be both understandable of the language of the subject, but also be able to internally comprehend how the language or topic operates. That is why being able to teach fluency and comprehension in tune with one another is vital, as individuals will only be able to effectively apply the knowledge that they gain from their learning if they learn how to do both.
- Although technique and comprehension should ideally be learned together, sometimes a reader is so intent on saying things accurately that knowing what was said goes by the board.
- Fluent reading refers to sounding out words properly and proceeding at the right speed and smoothness.
- However, good fluency is often affected, this holds especially true for dialogue, by having commensurate comprehension.
“A reader who has not developed fluency may sound more choppy, stumble over words, and read in a more monotone voice.”
