Abstract

This study aimed to explore the benefits of extensive reading on the development of Vietnamese EFL learners' reading fluency. The data were collected through an experiment conducted on university students who were following the usual English program for English majors. During the experiment, the treatment group read extensively and completed reading inventories for two months while the control group was given homework based on the reading materials they read in class. The results indicated that the extensive reading course helped the participants to increase their reading rate and facilitated their reading comprehension.
