Those who read the content with high voice, they can even teach others on what subject you were reading and thus serves as the purpose of educating others. One my relatives son is hardly three years old and he knows the portions of his sister who is studying 1st class. When her sister reads the subjects , poems and rhymes, he also memorizes the same and spells with same consistency. Now the small child is so perfect that he can attend the interview of 1st class and get qualified for the admission. All this could be possible as his sister studies with loud sound and maintains consistency.
