Abstract

The aim of the study was to determine any possible differences
in reading skill achievement with regard to the number of English lessons per
week, fi nal school grade in English, learning English outside school, learning
other foreign languages and using the Internet. Reading comprehension was tested
in the eighth grade of primary school (on a sample of 1254 learners) and in the
fourth grade of secondary school (on a sample of 656 learners). Results have
shown that the number of English lessons per week has a positive infl uence on
the reading skill achievement scores for secondary school learners, while no such
trend is observable for primary school learners. There was a mild to moderate
correlation between the overall English grade and the achievement on the reading
comprehension test. Learning English outside school had a positive infl uence on
the reading comprehension achievement score in primary school, which was not
the case for secondary school learners. Finally, using the Internet was positively
correlated with the reading skill in primary school learners.
