The most obvious tip would be to read extensively. Anything ranging from short novels to magazines would not only allow you to drastically improve your reading comprehension and speed, it would also help you to expand your vocabulary bank.

Study grammar extensively. If you ever want to say something in English, but you're unsure if you're making a mistake, check in that moment. With the internet you can check structures and even ask specific questions. Also, it obviously helps to consume media in English, be it books, movies with subtitles, tv, etc.

What exactly is wrong with your reading comprehension? Tips are not going to help. Glasses will (if the problem is that basic and shallow) or learning to read between the lines rather than reading the word as it is. There may be some cultural infl here, if you have been raised on the muslim texts.

Hi Sally, don't be too discouraged by this problem. I was raised in a Chinese family and had to learn English in Singapore. It was not an easy journey since both languages contrasted each other so much. However, after much hard work (and terrible misery XD), I am now coping very well in my English class. So, don't worry too much about this - even though there may be some sort of cultural influence, you will still be able to master another language if you practice diligently.
