It seems this webinar will be a great guide for the development of extensive reading skills. Currently, as a bilingual piano teacher, I still keep many extensive English reading skills, such as key-words summarizing, scanning and skimming... to search information and knowledge, such as through Wikipedia, online academic articles... for my students' classrooms, and for the preparation of library presentation - for example, Mozart, Beethoven... Meanwhile, I kept the habit of notes-taking for the storage. I thought it's essential for not only language-learning and the self-progress of specific subject - such as my piano-teaching... I gave my best wish to this webinar, and hopefully, it will be successful !
