Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics
Abstract: Reading is not only one of the most important skills in language learning, but also one of the main objectives of learning English in general. Many factors such as students' background knowledge, motivation, interest, organization of the texts and study skills may affect reading skill. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether teaching study skills would increase students' reading comprehension ability or not. To achive this goal, an experiment was carried out at Kermanshah Islamic Azad University, Iran during the fall semester of 2004-2005. The results of the study supported the argument that skills in reading depend on the precise coordination of a number of special reading skills and there is a significant relationship between the knowledge of study skills and reading comprehension.
