Usually, when speaking about reading in FL, the first thing that comes to the mind is a
picture of long boring text with a list of questions the aim of which is to challenge one’s
IQ. This picture among a number of other factors stand behind the negative attitudes a
great number of ESF/ESL learners hold toward READING SKILLS. This presentation
might help you help your students change their negative attitudes, if there were any,
towards reading skills, by demonstrating to you how you can eclecticize your teaching of
reading and making your students excitingly benefit from it! Discussed are: 1) the
different typologies of reading skills in EFL/ESL classroom; 2) the various strategies
following each type; and 3) the implementation procedures of each type.
