Difference Between Intensive and Extensive Reading

  Email this lesson

Intensive reading are the typical activities in a reading course based on instructor-assigned materials. It focuses on specific content, vocabulary development, reading skills, and so on.

Extensive reading, on the other hand, is also necessary for you to improve your reading skills; however, you do not need to be in a course to engage in extensive reading. In fact, effective readers read extensively just because they want to stay informed about the world around them.

When you read extensively you are in control! All you need to do is read independently.

  • Choose your own topics.
  • Choose sources you are comfortable with (not too easy, not too difficult).
  • Choose when and for how long you want to read (but try to read consistently).
