Abstract

This is a report on the first two years of extensive reading classes at Kure National College of Technology. We introduced extensive reading in the latter term of the 2007 academic year. In the first year, the data was gathered from 158 first-year students who did extensive reading for 10 to 25 minutes a week. The data from the study of reading speed shows that the difference in reading speed before and after the lessons is statistically significant. In the 2008 academic year, the practice has been expanded and the data was gathered from 294 first-year and second-year students in 8 classes. Comprehension as well as reading speed was checked in the beginning and at the end of the year. The data shows that the difference between before and after the lessons is statistically significant in terms of reading speed and/or comprehension in 6 classes. In addition, the result of the attitude survey shows that about 80 percent of the students have responded favorably to extensive reading and have felt a change in their ability to read English. Opinions of some second-year students show that they have enjoyed extensive reading more than the previous year and that the long-term practice is effective. In the final section, the problems will be discussed which were made clear during the first two years.
