Speed reading course on Skillshare: review
Looking to double your reading speed in 7 days? This course aims to help you get there.
In this short course, of a total of only 45 minutes, instructor Jordan Harry offers valuable techniques to read faster without losing comprehension. Even if you’re short on time, you can easily squeeze the course throughout your week! The videos are 2-min long on average.
Does it deliver on its promises?
Yes and no. I noticed an increase in my reading speed, but didn’t measure my before and after, so I can’t tell if it doubled.
Who is this course for?
Anyone looking to read faster, of all ages. It also has a bonus at the end on how to speed read with dyslexia.
Is it free?
It’s free with a Skillshare account. You can open a Skillshare account for free and get unlimited access to courses for 1 month, with their trial.
My favorite part of the course would be towards the end, when it introduces the F.A.S.T. technique. Didn’t sound too promising at first, but it delivered innovative techniques to me, structured in a very practical manner. I’ll be practicing them regularly.
If you’re searching for a more in-depth course, though, this might not be the one for you. This one is short and to the point, with 28 videos of under 5 minutes. If you try it out, make sure to leave your thoughts below!
