Abstract


 

Abstract. A variety of studies of human cognition in the areas of the psychology of language, linguistics, development and behavioral science bring the pieces of a broader picture together, where reading is to be defined as an integration of numerous processes that are acquired and learned. In this sense, reading is inseparable from language comprehension. If we define reading as a basic life skill, then fast reading should be defined as basic academic skill that may be acquired at any age. Faster reading leads to better understanding, better understanding of meaning and implications in a text leads to time efficiency in reading, resulting in higher self-confidence and improved performance of an individual. Publishers, editors, researchers, scientists, critics and students receive the highest benefits. With other professionals, reading e-mails, letters, reports, notes as an everyday routine leaves more time for work management and essential procedures. The ESP teachers’ practice perfectly matches this frame.
