‘Reading’ is the general term which most people use it to name ‘Reading comprehension’ (Grabe, 2002). Reading comprehension will achieve through understanding the text and extracting the meaning from a written text, and the activity or the purpose for reading (Snow, 2002) .Each reader provides his own purpose of reading a text in comparison with another reader therefore people may have different purposes for reading, some read it for general understanding, some for detailed understanding, some for amount of information and some readers for integrating information (Grade and Stoller, 2002).

Students tend to read word by word which make them try to understand the words per se and not on context. When this problem occurs it will reduce their interest and motivation to read. By using the extensive reading materials, the students will be taught to read and be more concerned with the meaning of the text rather than the meaning of individual words or sentences. Limitation of the Research Some problems might arise when the research is conducted: a) Selecting reading materials and suit the students’ ability and fit with the needs of the curriculum specification could be rather demanding.

Since it is the language widely used in science, medicine, law, film industry, internet, research, business and also as an official language in many countries, it has been accepted as a global language throughout the world. As such English has become a need for everyone and has been introduced in many countries as a second language in education. Here comes the role of English teacher who is not only supposed to introduce English as a language to the students but make the non-native speakers communicate in English fluently.

For this reason, since the opening of Penang Free School in 1816, teaching in all fields of education has increased in Malaysia, given that most of the information needed in different places and situations comes in this language. In the field of teaching and learning, various methods and approaches have been used to make the process of language learning more effective for students in mastering the English language. These methods and approaches in teaching need to be varied and language teachers have to ensure that the lesson is purposeful and meaningful for the learners.
