    Default Speed reading

    What is the best way to train yourself to speed read Japanese in general? I can read hiragana and katakana fine, although I'm a little lacking in kanji knowledge (about JLPT4 level?).

    Personally, speed is dependent on recognition/recall. It gets better with sheer practice, try to increase your vocabulary base. If I can write and recall a Kanji or compound, then I know I can at least read it, so I used to make it a point to practice Kanji by writing them out. For reading, I used comics with familiar storylines and graded reading textbooks to keep things balanced, and supplementary reference materials in English. Read a lot and have fun while at it, maybe starting with general articles, news, essays, and very specific topics that interest you. Good luck!

    What I think about speed reading is that...no matter in what language, as long as you are used to studying the language, you shouldn't be worried about that. Just like in English, can you speed read in English? People can often speed read in English because they are used to the language, and used to reading the language. When I first learned Chinese, I had no idea what each characters means, but when I got used to it, I can even skim over what the Chinese paragraph was saying. If you're a beginning Japanese learner, you should not worry about speed reading Japanese because it is not a big thing to worry about in the learning process. It's good that you are able to read hiragana and katakana, and I think you're right on track.

    Maybe you should read more, and get used to the language more. Otherwise you shouldn't worry about anything small like speed reading. Practice reading out loud instead of reading to yourself, because reading to yourself wouldn't help as much.

    What is really helping me out is just driller sheets. I made myself a schedule from practicing Japanese at least an hour and a half a day. and part of it is my drill sheets I will pick 3 common words, or words I just learned and write each one 40 times (in kana of course) in alteration while saying them out loud and I will also watch anime OPs and EDs and try to sing along with only the Kana. Try and do two spaced out sessions a day, preferable once right before you go to bed. If you do not stress your mind over anything else you will still be processing what you learned until you enter your first REM stage. Also flash card, or basically anything you did from 1st - 3rd grade will be very helpful.

    If you want to speed read, then use Google Translate or Babblefish. I mean the purpose of speed reading is to save time at the expense of comprehension, why not?
