Students discuss the exercise

Students discuss their experiences with the exercise to preview a longer text, and tell us which keywords they wrote down.

Disappointed that the Jakhtilus doesn’t exist? It is the perfect exercise for previewing, since none of the information can trigger some existing information. That way the focus remains completely on learning how to preview: making an outline of the main topics of the text. Try to approach other texts the same way, so that previewing will become a habit!

Please share your experiences with previewing with the other learners by taking the following questions into account.

  • Did you find the exercise hard or easy to do?
  • What did this exercise teach you about previewing?
