Dr. Ammar Mohammed Ahmed Mudawy, Dr. Abdal Rahman Omer Al Hussain Alhaj


Abstract: The study is an attempt to promote EFL students performance in reading English text. The study aims at exploring the effective techniques that could improve EFL students performance in English reading texts. Two tools were adopted pretest and post-test for collecting data, from (50) students at Wad Medani Ahlia University, batch (22) chosen purposively and a questionnaire for (30) EFL teachers at university level. (90 %) of EFL experienced teachers agree on the suggested techniques. The EFL students performance in the pre- test was (23.6 %). Then a supporting programme was carried out by the researchers to implement the suggested techniques for improving reading text. After the supporting programme which lasted two months, a post-test was conducted by the researchers to see how students have benefited from the supporting programme. The score of the students has increased significantly in the post-test, to confirm an improvement in students performance. The findings of the study indicate that the most effective techniques for improving students performance in reading text are introducing a variety of appropriate techniques while teaching reading text, to arouse interest and motivation, integrating reading skills to make reading skills work together, using graded and interesting texts to suit students understanding, reading critically to enable students to have independent thinking.
