Reading Skill
Reading in thought groups
While making constant efforts to improve your reading comprehension, you should try consciously to increase your reading speed. And to read in thought groups is an easy, yet effective way of picking up speed and fluency. (

Guided Writing
Using subordinating clauses
It is true that being terse is one of the most important principles in writing. But, it does not mean that you should always write simple and short sentences, which would make your writing too monotonous. It is advisable to use longer and more complex sentence patterns now and then in order to achieve variation. Subordination is just one way of doing that.
