2. Types

2.1. here are five types of reading comprehension: literal comprehension, reorganization, inferential, evaluation, and appreciation.

3. Strategies

3.1. To improve students' reading comprehension, teachers should introduce the seven cognitive strategies of effective readers: activating, inferring, monitoring-clarifying, questioning, searching-selecting, summarizing, and visualizing-organizing.

4. Inference

4.1. What Is It? Making an inference involves using what you know to make a guess about what you don't know or reading between the lines. Readers who make inferences use the clues in the text along with their own experiences to help them figure out what is not directly said, making the text personal and memorable.
