What was the first book you read that you remember? How about your most-loved favourite book? Can we turn something we remember into something we like? Is it possible to turn reading from a habit into a hobby, and finally into a necessity – something we simply cannot live without? To kick start our newly-launched series of workshops – co-organized by “Bookworm” of The Factory and Thư quán Cội Việt – which aim to share and practice with the public both basic and advanced reading skills, we invite self-learning advocate Nguyễn Minh Nhật to share the experiences he has gained over years of trying to master the art of reading.
The ABC English language book for kids; the “Nhân – Lễ – Nghĩa – Trí – Tín” picture book; the series of Vietnamese, Grimm’s and Andersen’s fairy tales – these are iconic reading materials that most local readers would have laid eyes on as they were growing up. Minh Nhật’s passion for reading, however, was further nourished as he experimented with incorporating reading with other forms of activity (such as singing, song-writing, acting and drawing) in order to find more effective ways to help him remember and reflect on what he has read.
At the workshop, participants will also be asked to join interactive activities and games relating to reading, with the hope that such expansion will introduce a different angle on how we normally perceive such activity, and how we can better cultivate our interest in reading once the seed is planted.
