Diving into Literature in Your Target Language

Do you love discovering new worlds through books? The experience is even better when reading books in your target language, since you will gain access to completely different worlds than the ones you’re used to and you will greatly improve your language knowledge at the same time.

If you’re still daunted by the idea, I will outline the steps you can take in order to start reading books and even literature classics in your target language. I will advise on when to do it, which kinds of books are the most suitable to get started, and how to improve your reading speed and enjoyment. I myself have read more than a dozen books each in Chinese and in Modern Greek, so I’ll also cover how to deal with the extra difficulty of extensive reading in a foreign writing system.
