Unfolding Online Extensive Reading Attitudes and Experiences of Freshmen

Sat, Nov 13, 15:25-15:50 Asia/Tokyo

Location: Room 05

In Thailand, implementing an extensive reading program (ERP) at a university level is relatively new, especially with the integration of an online library. After two semesters of the ERP implementation at a large public university in Bangkok, a study has been conducted to investigate freshmen’s attitudes toward extensive reading, and experiences in reading graded readers online on Xreading.com. Students’ feedback will shed light on what needs to be done to improve the ERP.
