It is considered valuable to take advantage of web activities to improve and qualify the English teaching and learning processes, especially in the promotion of reading comprehension. In this article we share the process and results of a study that focused on some activities based on web materials that were designed and used with 10th grade students, with the purpose of promoting reading. Data was gathered through the use of questionnaires, surveys and web activities. The results showed that most of the students agree on the fact that reading more information concerning a specific topic or about different subjects makes them work with enthusiasm; they also had new possibilities to access knowledge in a different way and to improve reading comprehension.
