A Narrow-Intensive Reading (NIR) strategy combines both Narrow Reading and Intensive Reading strategies, and is motivated by the advantages of both. The purpose of this research is to study the effects of adopting a NIR strategy in language learning and acquisition by analyzing its influence on the process of memorization, particularly from the Short-term Memory (STM) to the Long-term Memory (LTM). The study is based on two main theories: firstly, a slower reading speed can generate more possibilities for rehearsal when encoding information to the LTM; secondly, a deeper analysis of texts contributes to keeping information in the memory.
