    Reading

    What would you suggest are the best ways of practising reading skills? I have passed the Certificate of Proficiency in English (Cambridge) with an A, but still I feel there is much room for improvement. I read for at least two ours in English a day. I have tried some preparation for the American SAT critical reading test, too. One thing I have noticed is that I should try to widen my vocabulary.

    There's always room for improvement. If you are intending to sit for the American SAT, it's probably best to read only American literature for a while (by which I mean anything written in AmE). After you pass, of course, you will want to relax this onerous restriction on your further education.
