The article introduces major stages and characteristic features of the entire process of reading. The professional literature data illustrate that the reading process is closely linked to the development of verbal communication. Good reading skills at both elementary and middle schools are a guarantee of high academic achievement, and in the heavy flow of information they are a reliable means of orientation, which the learner deals with. A mastery of good reading skills is the path to early-aged learner's further education as well as the most essential means of communication and information transmission in society.
