This article offers five instructional enhancements that help students become better readers. These classroom practices coincide with five key elements of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) reading instruction: "extensive practice and exposure to print," "commitment to building student motivation," "attention to reading fluency," "vocabulary building," and "comprehension skills practice and discussion." The classroom practices can be used in addition to a prescribed reading curriculum, for as little as ten minutes per week, to improve students' reading abilities. (Contains 3 figures.)
