When you read something in English, do you struggle to understand long sentences? This is quite a common problem, and it occasionally happens to native speakers too! Sometimes there is so much information in a sentence that it’s difficult to understand what the subject or object is, or just what on earth the sentence is about!

If this happens to you, try to break the sentence into smaller pieces. Conquer one small part at a time, and build up your understanding  little by little. If you eat a pizza, it’s difficult to eat the whole thing as it is! You cut it into smaller, more easy-to-manage pieces. Do the same with big sentences.
