Abstract

This brief paper examines and discusses the results of a two-semester study on reading improvement for first year English and Communication majors at two small junior colleges in western Japan. One group participated in an Extensive Reading (ER) program in conjunction with their Oral English classes. The other had similar classes but no ER. A pre-post test was administered to determine reading level improvements. Results indicate that the experimental group showed significant gains as a result of the treatment.
