Reading in a Foreign Language: A Self-Access Approach.
This paper demonstrates how learners can work on problems involved in learning a foreign language on their own through reading strategies and the help of a well-stocked, language resources center. Using this self-access approach and the resources center, the learner can accomplish the goal of learning with only minimal assistance from other learners or a language learning adviser. It is suggested that learning materials be developed for language development as well as for reading skills development. Approaches that have been found useful for language learning through reading and for reading skills, in particular, are reviewed, such as extensive reading, intensive reading, skimming, scanning, and summarizing. The impact of reading speed on student learning is also discussed. (Contains 22 references.) (NAV)
