ABSTRACT
One of the four competences subjected to evaluation by the end of the academic years in the military academies, is reading comprehension. For most students it looks as being the easiest skill, but actually it is one that causes lots of trouble. When you read for comprehension you imply active reading, critical thinking, rich vocabulary, a good command of grammar rules, appropriate reading techniques and general knowledge from different fields. At times, you may come across ideas that are difficult to understand. Language is so important to your learning as you cannot make sense of a text, mostly academic, or simply you cannot understand the subject, interpret it and answer the questions or select relevant and appropriate material for your needs. In short, a good command of English is vital when you take the reading comprehension evaluation test. The higher the level you want to get, the more difficult is to show your knowledge and critical understanding of the subject, including some specialist areas.
