Reading is a complex mental process that consists of different components such as seeing, attending, perceiving, recalling, attaching meaning, synthesizing, analyzing and interpreting. Reading is therefore one of the most important steps in understanding. Training reading is considered important because it includes other basic language skills. Intensive studies are carried out in the field about training reading, how it should be done and the methods to be applied during this education process. Extensive reading has a significant role in extending language proficiency. Extensive reading is effective, in that, it leads to sufficient knowledge of vocabulary and grammar.
