  1. Comment on I have trouble reading classic novels by myself as I spend most of my time looking for meaning of most of the words. Any tips on how I can speed up this process? in ~books

    English is my third language. Although I can read, write and speak simple english without effort but when reading any novel from the past I find the need to keep a dictionary by my side and use it very often- almost 2 to 3 times per sentence. I know there's no shortcut other than learning those words but I was wondering if I can speed it up so I don't need to distract myself with a dictionary.
