Hi, it's Lottie from the Cala Vox UK podcast team. I wanted to talk to you about something super important: reading comprehension. It's basically the ability to read something and really understand what it's trying to say. It's not just about recognising words, it's about being able to interpret them, work out the context and draw conclusions about what the author is trying to tell you.
Recently, I was challenged to use my skills to read Rumpelstiltskin by the Brothers Grimm in the original language. This was no easy task as the story had been translated by Margaret Raine Hunt and edited by Dr Cala Sana, which meant that there were some tricky words and phrases that I had to navigate.
