    Does reading a lot really improve your vocabulary and speech skills?

    Hi . Many times before I have been told that reading improves your skills and you are very good in your English class. So what do you think, should people read more to be better in their english skills or is that just something they made up? I personally believe it depends on the person. The way they recieve the information they get from reading and how they use it in their life.

    Well I don't read books anymore cause I'm dyslexic but I think my grammar and vocabulary is mediocre. It could be better but improving takes more work than usual. I do think reading does help though. Young children learn words and how to use them from listening. Thats how we learn to talk. So listening also has a lot to do with it.

    Sometimes reading alot can improve vocab, and speech skills but like you said I think it depends on the person. I've found that it helps me out a lot in every area of english myself...except spelling...I'm still a horrible speller. People all learn different ways so reading effects everyone diffrently.

    ~!!! I don't think just reading a bunch books, pertaining to vocabulary and speech help one to enhance his/her skills. One has to practice, of course. That's the key element. If you learn new words, try to incorporate them when you speak to others. In doing so, you will not only be able to properly, but you will also retain that vocabulary you learnt for a long period of time [.] and with further use, it will remain in your memory permanently.

    How do you think I learnt to speak/write proper English, though I don't believe I serve as a decent example?! Through practice. Mind you, English is not my mother tongue. Having a disciplined and sincere mind is all it takes. That's just what I believe!

    Vocabulary? Yes, if you read books that use a wide vocabulary.

    Speech? Yes, but only if you use it. Like everything it must be practiced.
