    I don't recall if I learned to read prior to first grade or not. But I learned to read during first grade. It's one of my more vivid childhood memories because of all the stress surrounding the situation. We moved to the States from South Korea, and I was placed in speech classes and my parents bought me hooked on phonics. New country, new language, and on top of that, my dad was slightly cruel and punished me when I did my homework incorrectly. I had quite the aversion to learning for a long time, which I think was rooted in those years.

    I have three memories related to "learning to read". The first is reading simple addition problems and individual words at the age of 3, the second is my mother having me read short passages for practice when I was 5, and the third is being one of the "readers" in Kindergarten who read handouts to the class, specifically one about the rain forest. Placing an exact time on when I started to learn is impossible.

    I didn't even realize at the time that there were people in my Kindergarten class that couldn't read. It's just crazy to think about how little I understood the people around me up until 6-7th grade. Before then, I assumed that everyone in my classes was at the same place in terms of learning.

    I remember being able to read a little bit before going to school and learning to read much better shortly after starting school.

    Three. I was reading the comic strip Peanuts first (Charlie Brown, Snoopy).
    I was regularly reading The Golden Book Encyclopedia of Natural Science by age 5.
    I was reading adult-level books by mid-elementary school.

    More books, please.

    Default A Pastime from Times Past

    When they taught me to read, they never told me I wouldn't be able to stop.

    Thank God for the telephone, the television, radio, movies, and Youtube, where I have no need to read - I can see a future where reading is a quaint pastime from times past.

    Apparently, I was about 3 when I became interested in reading and writing. I didn't make much progress, although my mom bought me books and flashcards and stuff. I could read better than other kids when I went to kindergarten, but I was still much older than that by the time I learned to read fluently (about normal age, I'd wager).

    I think they taught us the basics in preschool, but I only remember reading when I was in Grade A/first year of school.

    depends on when they were taught it, yes?

    I was taught it when I was 4 and I was a very good reader soon

    when I got to school, I remember that when the other kids were learning to read, I was allowed to read the books I took with me to school
