Abstract

The purpose of this brief paper is investigate factors which constitute reading ability of Japanese EFL learners. By reconsidering the nature of reading, reading ability and its constituents, especially for L2 learners, it is concluded that to Japanese EFL learners, reading is not so much a reading problem as a language problem. It is suggested that more emphasis should be placed on the training of lower-level bottom-up processing skills and the automatization of those skills.
