    Helping students improve their reading skills...

    I would like to prepare some materials for my students to help them improve their reading skills.  I have looked through their textbooks.  The only answer I see to improving reading skills seems to be "learn more words".  Granted, vocabulary is important, but there are other things that students can do to improve their reading.   Does anyone have articles that are helpful to this end?  Suggestions...ideas...especially things you have used in China that worked?  I know..I am an oral English teacher...but I firmly believe that if I can get my students to be more successful at reading, they will like English more and will be more willing to speak, etc.

    Just to take a step back though — why are they only learning "oral" English?

    Illiterate students are only going to progress in a very limited way, especially in vocabulary if they can't read.

    If they can understand Hanyu Pinyin then at least they can recognise the Roman alphabet
