As TOEIC score data (2016) show, the English reading ability of Japanese university and college students has declined recently, especially compared with English listening ability. Though English teaching in the universities has typically emphasized intensive reading, bringing ER (extensive reading) into the classroom can be a highly effective measure to enhance students’ reading abilities. In this paper, I propose ways to practice ER with college students on a regular-class basis.
