I am a Psychology student. Although English is not my mother tongue but I can speak English fluently, read English newspapers, letters and even university text books quite well. But when it comes to academic articles/reports, things become extremely ugly and frustrating. I would easily get lost in the middle of the article, have completely no idea what the article/report is trying to say. The sentences are horribly long, many of them are in the length of a paragraph. whats makes things even worse than they already are is that the sentence structure is very complicated, with tons of words I do not know the meaning of. Even if I check the meaning on dictionary to get the meaning of those words, they still do not make sense at all. Sometimes I think the article/report writers did this on purpose to give their readers hard time because that seriously frustrates me when spending hours and days to study but ended up not being able to understand the articles/reports we are required to read for the major assignment.
