E makes most sense...btw D & E...

what it conveys is that learning to speak while learning to read it, instead of as a seperate process of reading...is better...

Need to know we compare what to what
" learning ........read it" is a process, thus correct answer must contain the word " process" or sort of . E is fine coz it , anyway, uses "rather than" which is preferred in GMAT.

This was very confusing for me. Finally came down to A and E.
Agree with others, E seems better.

When is it better to use "instead of" vs "rather than"??

rather than should be used since we are indicating a preference between choices.
C and D are out
A and B - awkward

E is the best choice.

noted !! independently is adverb as well as separately

in place of +noun,
in lieu of + noun,
rather than ex I would rather go swimming than go to the library
ex I would watch TV rather see movies
ex I would live in town rather in the country.
