The Teaching of Reading Comprehension for Students of EFL Assisted by Computers

Profesor Antonio Pérez Correa, Profesora Julio Antonio Tejera Castillo.


The teaching of reading comprehension for students of EFL assisted by computers is a challenge that the University of Information Sciences is facing together with other universities of the country but in a lower degree. Our experience tells us that we are still away from reaching the desired level, simply because we disregard the teaching of reading techniques and subskills which could help a lot if we use them correctly in our lessons. That is the reason for which this paper will focus on the question of how EFL reading can be facilitated with computer applications for language teaching and learning. First, the paper will go over some of the available research on computers and EFL reading, and then discuss some techniques or sub skills that can be used in teaching and learning EFL reading for university students.
