Abstract

Reading is an important activity in both first language (L1) and second/foreign language (SL/ FL) classrooms. Yet, conscious research into the process of reading is a recent activity. This research has brought about a significant change in our knowledge of what reading is. It tells us that there are three kinds of reading processes: (1) reading as decoding what the writer has coded, a bottom-up language-driven process; (2) reading as a top-down, concept-driven process; and (3) reading as an interactive compensatory process.
