Enhancing Skimming strategy on ESP College students' Performance in Improving Reading Comprehension

Edhah Numan Khazaal


The present study aims to enhance skimming strategy on ESP college students' performance in improving reading comprehension. To fulfill the purposes of this study, 40 second-year students were chosen to be the sample of the present study. Twenty students were enrolled in an experimental group that received instruction through skimming strategy, while the other twenty students were enrolled in a control group, which was taught reading comprehension by the use of the traditional method of teaching reading comprehension. The findings after instruction indicate that the experimental group subjects' performance in reading comprehension has been found to be better than that of the control group subjects on the reading comprehension post-test and that the experimental group subjects show statistically significant increases in the use of skimming strategy.  On the basis of the results obtained, it is recommended that skimming strategy should be considered as part of reading instruction courses at the college level.
