Extensive reading and learning German with parallel texts: Why?

Extensive reading means reading a lot in a foreign language. It is not essential to understand every word. You continue to read to find out what happens next. The pleasure of reading is what increases language abilities. Kato Lomb was a Hungarian interpreter who spoke several languages fluently. She described in her book "How I Learn Languages" how she used extensive reading to increase her vocabulary fast.

The American linguist Stephen Krashen has said that free voluntary reading is "the most powerful tool we have in language education".
