Factors that Influence Students’ Reading Comprehension Achievement in the Foreign Language

Irena Shehu


Reading comprehension is an important part of language learning and when we came to the results and achievements it turns out to be one of the most difficult process where students fail to achieve high points. Latest results of Matura State Exams in English Language in Albanian showed that students’ achievement was not satisfactory, mainly in Reading Comprehension part. One, certainly, may ask for factors that bring out such results. Actually, there are a lot of factors but we are mainly focused on two categories, which influence the students’ reading comprehension achievements and they are related one another, they are: internal factor and the external factors. The focus of internal factors will be on: motivation and interests. On the other hand some of the external factors discussed on the follow are: reading material, teacher of reading and questioning strategies. It is important to mention that the above hypotheses were tested in some of the high schools of Albania.

Keywords: Reading Comprehension, foreign language, low achievements, internal factors, external factors.
