ABSTRACT

This study is based on the awareness that a useful reading program needs to be developed for universityEFL students who have limited exposure to English. For the program, we combine an extensive readingprogram with a collaborative active learning approach. The study aims to describe our implementation of theextensive program with Korean university EFL students and analyze its effects on language improvement. Based upon that, it attempts to suggest a model for extensive reading. For the research design, it employs qualitativemethod such as learning logs and interviews with students and teachers; and quantitative method includingpre- and post-reading tests. The study provides several significant results. First, it shows that the extensivereading program through collaborative active learning contributed to improving participants’ English competencein reading and writing. Second, it suggests that the roles of students and teachers be re-established forthe program to be utilized successfully with Korean EFL learners. Finally, a model of an extensive reading programusing collaborative active learning was suggested.
