Abstract

Reading comprehension can be really challenging to master, especially for learners of English as a second language (ESL). The goal of reading is to derive meaning and comprehend what we read. The focus of this study was on whether or not learners exposed to real-life based passages would improve their reading comprehension by learning with authentic materials as opposed to passages from textbooks. In order to achieve this goal, twelve students from a government-run secondary school were selected as participants. The school is located in the city of Palacaguina, Department of Madriz, Nicaragua. The study was carried out over three weeks (6 visits). The data for this research was gathered through observation guides, interviews to the students and an interview that was directly applied to the teacher. The results reflected that the use of real-life based passages as one type of authentic materials is of great significance to the personal and cognitive development of learners of a second language. It has been proved that the use of authentic materials along with engaging teaching strategies will result in significant learning of the language, particularly in the enhancement of the reading skill.
