Rahman, Mohammad Mustafizur; Jahan, Akhter
This paper explores the importance of developing fluent reading skill and tends to find out the strengths and weaknesses of its teaching at the tertiary level in Bangladesh. In order to give our students sufficient exposure to English, we have to solve the problems of learning and teaching fluent reading in English and find out effective ways of approaching this significant skill. With reference to research evidence, that we have studied both from the teachers’ and students’ point of view on the basis of a questionnaire survey, we now turn to the role of fluent reading in fostering learners’ progress in reading skill as well as developing the other three major skills-listening, speaking and writing.
