Crawl Method to Improve English Language Skills Fast

All of us read something or the other every day. Can we make use of a small part of that reading to improve our English language skills – mainly written English, but to some extent spoken English as well – at a much faster rate than we currently are?

Yes, we can. (The similarity of this sentence to Mr. Obama’s 2008 election slogan is purely coincidental.)

Through reading slowly and attentively, crawling in other words. (After writing this post, I came across the concept of intensive and extensive reading. Crawl method in intensive reading taken even further, more granular.)

If you can make crawling a regular habit, you’ll improve your English language skills at a much faster clip than your peers.
