Setting Extensive Reading Goals to Achieve Reading Rate Gains

Fri, Aug 13, 21:30-21:50 Asia/Tokyo Day 2

Beglar and Hunt (2014) suggested that completing the equivalent of 7,200 standard words of extensive reading per week will facilitate substantial reading rate gains. The goal of this study was to investigate the feasibility of such a goal for learners of Japanese. Results, pedagogical implications, and suggestions will be discussed.
