Looking, saying aloud, listening, and picturing forms

Klair realizes that she can get more out of a reading if she goes beyond just looking at the text.  She finds it useful to combine her perceptual modes by simultaneously

  • looking at the words
  • saying them aloud,
  • listening to them (as she says them), and
  • picturing them mentally. 

By doing this, she has the advantage of getting used to the word or form in four different ways, instead of just one.
