Abstract

As technology is developing rapidly, students are increasingly eager to use its advantages in EFL classrooms. Based on their interests and needs, EFL teachers use modern educational technology such as Xreading.com in their teaching. This paper illustrates the ER program implemented using Xreading.com at Mandakh University, a private business university in Mongolia. Within a two-year period, the program has been adapted with 1 and 6-month cycles involving 45 students based on individual reading engagement. Moreover, the program aimed to expose the changes in their attitude toward reading in English extensively, and to improve their reading skills. As a result, the ER program has reached its most important expectation to build up reading skills in English for the students. Moreover, the teachers found that the ER in English should be implemented in the university English classrooms such as General English, ESP, and Business English courses, with properly established foreign language education systems, including the assessment scheme.
