How do you overcome the challenging in reading? Have you been stuck in reading. Might there are many new words or some complex sentence that make you very tired. Meanwhile, if you skip those sentences, then you will lose many detailed information. Based my experience, the big challenge in reading is not new phrases or familiar grammar issues, but is the culture gap. For some pages, I have re-read many times. But I find that I will improve my comprehension over time. I still don't find any shut way to overcome such challenges in reading. What is your experience?

My suggestions:

- copy the phrase or sentence, then paste it into Google (or any search engine)

- copy the phrase, clause, sentence, or passage then ask a native English speaker to explain it to you

- if it is just one word, look it up in a dictionary, and a thesaurus and search for the word used in sentences (https://fraze.it/)

¡Hola!, my name is Sara, encantada de hablar contigo. I am Spanish and I work as a Spanish teacher. I saw on batterfly Spanish that you are learning Spanish. I am currently thinking about a new project based on teaching Spanish in a different way ( the Spanish books don’t teach) and implementing tecnics that I have being using with my students and worked for them. I would like to create a new space on the Internet with many free content  and resources for you to learn, like reading texts, speaking exercises.... In order to do this the better I can,  I would like you to help me. I would really appreciate if you could please fill up this anonimous survey about how do you learn Spanish, what needs you have… Thanks a lot for helping me and os course if you have any doubt just text me. Mil gracias! This is the survey link: https://saraa8.typeform.com/to/bnuLea
