Abstract: abstract:Few English remedial instructions focused on screening out the factors in causing successful and unsuccessful reading and on provoking English learners’ motivation to read English. The researcher conducted an English extensive reading program to promote freshmen’s English reading comprehension ability and motivation to read English text. The purposes of this study were first to examine the effects of the program on the participant’s reading comprehension, second, to analyze the factors in causing successful and unsuccessful reading, and third, to explore the impact of the program on disabled readers’ attitudes toward English reading. The results show that on the average, the participants can understand the content of the graded readers up to 67%. Direct story outlines and similar schemes between the story and the film can facilitate the participant’s reading comprehension; in contrast, unfamiliar topics, unclear conversational statements, the nuance of English words in the joke, and the participant’s lack of reading interests and experience in reading can cause his/her reading problems. The study finds that self-selected, familiar, difficulty-suitable reading materials, oral encouragement, and the instructor’s careful listening to the participant’s reading problems can promote the participant’s motive. Besides, the study reveals that the program has changed the participant’s attitude to English class and English reading. Based on the results, instructional recommendations were presented for the learner with low English academic achievements and low motive to English reading.
