Abstract
In the Philippines, English may be considered as the second language, but students may still be
struggling to cope with learning to read; something that even authorities admit even though studentsí reading
aptitude in public elementary and high schools, for years, has been measured using intensive reading. In search
for alternative reading approach to get children interested in reading, the researchers tried Extensive Reading
(ER) which has been promoted to be the best way to improve language proficiency of the second language
learners. Using the one-group pretest-posttest method, the study involved 10 children residing in a local
barangay (the smallest administrative division in the Philippines) in Manila who were initially diagnosed as
frustrated readers. The participants were allowed to choose the reading materials based following their graded
reading level, and they were given assessment each time they have completed their reading. After the ten-week
sessions, remarkable changes in the reading performance of the children were found in their reading performance
both in speed and comprehension. The positive results of this experiment served as strong basis for an extension
activity to be conducted to continue monitoring the reading performance of the children participants in the said
barangay.

Key words: Extensive Reading, Reading, Reading Comprehension, Reading Speed, Reading
