Great effort Olek!

If I would criticise anything in your audio it might jut be a case of speaking a bit more clearly. I could understand what you were saying, but maybe practising different ways of saying the words so that they come out a bit clearer.

Hope this helps!

Hi Oleks,

I had never heard of Schulte tables before reading your extract today! Speed reading is such a useful skill to have, so it is something I need to try! (I also have major problems concentrating for extended periods of time and again, my iPhone does not help me haha)

This was another brilliantly well-written extract. I just have a few observations

1. they develop the peripheral vision - they will help you develop your peripheral vision  (again, try to address the reader directly as much as possible. You will find that many blog posts / guides do this nowadays..."You will learn".... "It will help you to..."..."You will find that"...)

2. used in mastering speed reading. - used to help people master speed reading.

3. Schulte table is a table - A Schulte table is a table (you need the indefinite article "a", as you are introducing something new - a Schulte table.

4. The most common option is a 5×5 table with numbers from 1 to 25 - The most common option is a 5×5 table which contains the numbers 1 to 25.

Shulte pronunciation -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIHyOQBMazQ

5x5- in English you can also say "5 by 5" when you are not referring to an actual mathematical problem.

Great job!
