...will be like staring at words without knowing what it is about. Reading without comprehension is also like listening to a person talking to you without understanding what he or she actually wants to convey”, Riley Johnson (2010). Reading is indispensable and one of the most important aspects of learning. It is also one of the most essential parts in student’s life. It is necessary to determine the possible problems that the students are facing in relation to their comprehension skills in reading, to come up with the most appropriate strategies in reading suitable for the leaner’s ability to understand the text. This reseach is intended to detect the reading comprehension level of the freshmen Bachelor of Arts major in English of Quirino State University in relation to their speed in reading as they engage themselves in the text. The concentration involved as they read may influence their performance in understanding the materials they are up to. Since reading is vital for Bachelor of Arts students and also to the other courses, it is actually a very complex process that really needs an extended active participation on the readers. However, some students developed negative study habits, some read only for pleasure, other just read without comprehending the text and some ignores reading. This unpleasant behavior in reading may come up of nothing and this will serve as the failure in their comprehension skills. | | Research Framework: ......

This study explored the extent to which graduate students enrolled in Higher Education courses were proficient at writing. While writing proficiency has been extensively studied in elementary students, high school students, and undergraduates, little attention has been paid to formally evaluating graduate student proficiency. Despite the relatively new idea of assessing graduate student writing, it is a concern for graduate faculty and a valid area for study. This study was based on a sample of graduate students enrolled in at least one course in Higher Education at public institutions of higher education in the United States.

...Alignment of Academic Standards with ELL Proficiency Standards Laura Hardin Grand Canyon University ESL-523N May 8, 2011 Abstract This essay focuses on standards-based instruction and its effects on English language learners. Furthermore, this discussion will address the purpose for creating ELL Standards and the resulting benefits the standards provide both teachers and students within ELL departments throughout the country. As the amount of second language learners steadily increases, it is critical that the components necessary to decrease the language barriers, which can negatively affect students’ daily performance, be analyzed and modified as necessary. In 1983, a report titled, A Nation at Risk: The Imperative for Educational Reform, was released under President Reagan’s National Commission on Excellence in Education (“A Nation at Risk”, 2006). The statistical information gathered in this report compared the performance of American high school and college students to that of their peers in other advanced countries. This study identified several risk factors in regard to the public education system in the United States. For example, commission research found that American students failed to place first or second on any of the nineteen academic tests administered internationally and in fact placed last on seven of those nineteen assessments (National Commission on Excellence in Education, 1983). In addition, the study showed a steady......

... Irvine Clarke III, Theresa B., Flaherty, Newell D. Wright, Robert M. McMillen (2009) Student Intercultural Proficiency From Study Abroad Programs, Journal of Marketing Education Statement of the Problem The problem, which is related to study abroad programs (SAPs), is clearly stated in the article’s introduction. The problem stated is “that a deficiency exists, within marketing education, of empirical evidence on the explicit impact of SAPs on student attitudes and behavior. In particular, empirical evidence is absent which specifies the characteristics of intercultural growth that are an outcome of SAP” (Clarke, Flaherty, Newell, McMillen, 2009, p. 174). Purpose Statement The purpose is directly stated in the article as follows, “this study… attempts to extend the marketing education literature by empirically investigating the specific intercultural proficiencies that may advance while students study abroad” (Clarke III, et. al. 2009 p. 174). The purpose then specifically addresses the benefits for marketing educators from “expanded knowledge on the possible outcomes of a SAP” (p. 174). Background & Importance/Significance (literature review) In this study, the literature review serves three purposes. First, it defines the specific intercultural proficiencies that are likely to advance from the study abroad experience: intercultural proficiency, global mindedness, intercultural communication, openness to diversity, and intercultural sensitivity (Clarke III,...

...English should continue to be the official language of India. English is used as the official language in India. Yes • English is one such language that is understood by people from different castes and states, and therefore deserves to be the official language of India. • If any other language is tried to make the official language, all the regional parties will start the battle of making the state level as official language of India. • If Hindi is given priority then it will create differences among the people who don’t speak it making them feel as second class citizens. • Region C forms an important part of India that got agitated when PM Modi used Hindi for its diplomatic talks.  • The use of English language is as per the requirement of being a part of globalization and there is nothing wrong in it. No • Forget about all the different castes and religions as Indians have their own national language that is Hindi, and that should only be the official language of India. • It is the duty of the government to take the measures so that people all over in India can read, write and speak in Hindi.  • Already Indian has adopted the western culture in many ways. If it continues there will be no personal or rather say national identity of India. • In this case, India should learn something from Pakistan who made the Urdu as their official language after the division of country. • The small little steps are the ways that will make sure that the...
