A seguinte descrio do que pode ser chamado de
leitura conjunta d algumas dicas muito importantes
sobre o processo de leitura.
O Sr. Smith aprendeu as letras do alfabeto cirlico,
mas ele no teve tempo para aprender a falar russo. O
Sr. Smirnoff aprendeu a falar russo desde pequeno mas
nunca aprendeu a ler em russo. Um dia o Sr. Smirnoff
recebeu uma carta de um parente escrita em cirlico, mas
ele no pode ler a carta. Ele mostra a carta para o Sr.
Smith. O Sr. Smith no pode entend-la, mas tudo bem
porque o Sr. Smith pode ler a carta em voz alta e o Sr.
Smirnoff pode reconhecer as palavras e interpret-las;
ambos ficam contentes.
A questo que precisa ser respondida a seguinte:
Quem est lendo, Smith ou Smirnoff? Obviamente
para ser fluente em uma lngua necessrio que
o estudante aprimore as duas habilidades que o Sr.
Smith e o Sr. Smirnoff adquiriram. justamente por
esta razo que o Mtodo Pimsleur ensina leitura de
uma maneira especial.
Ler pode ser definido como o ato de decodificar
material grfico para se poder obter e determinar uma
mensagem. Colocado de outra maneira, ler consiste em
retornar fala atravs de smbolos grficos. Cada texto
representa uma possvel expresso vocal, mas apenas
indivduos com alguma fluncia podero deduzir como
um texto escrito vai soar em voz alta. Portanto, falar
uma lngua o primeiro passo necessrio para adquirir
a habilidade de ler e entender o sentido. As lies de
Introduo

leitura neste livro proporcionam o segundo passo. As
lies foram criadas para ajud-lo a associar sons e
mudanas de sons com as letras do alfabeto em ingls.
Ingls americano I contm 21 lies de leitura: as
quais esto todas juntas no fim do curso. Voc pode
fazer as lies de leitura numa hora conveniente depois
de voc j ter completado algumas lies orais, ou voc
pode esperar e fazer todas as lies orais primeiro e
ento fazer as leituras no fim. Note, entretanto, que as
lies de leitura incluem palavras e expresses de todas
as 30 lies, assim como novas palavras. Ento, talvez
voc sinta mais satisfao fazendo as leituras depois de
ter completado as 30 lies. Instrues minuciosas em
relao a como fazer as lies de leitura esto includas
na parte de audio reservada para tal.
Ao fazer as lies, lembre-se que o ingls uma
lngua extremamente irregular, com inmeras excees
e as diretrizes dadas nestas lies refletem padres
gerais e no regras rgidas. Porm, com o crescimento
do seu vocabulrio, voc vai perceber que estas
excees vo se tornando menos problemticas. Voc
vai comear a reconhecer palavras e perceb-las como
palavras inteiras, eliminando assim a necessidade
de decodificlas letra por letra. Sintase a vontade para
proceder nestas lies de leitura no seu prprio ritmo,
repetindo cada lio conforme necessrio antes de seguir
para a prxima. Talvez voc descubra que no comeo,
a leitura em ingls exija certa prtica. Mas, com um
pequeno esforo, voc vai ficar impressionado com a
rapidez com a qual voc estar lendo.
