Reading for Survival | Focus on the Family
Students of any language need to be able to read in that language. Of this there is little doubt. However, exactly what is meant by 'reading' is less clear. Native speakers 'read' and process an enormous amount of material each day, and they approach it in different ways depending largely on their motivation for reading. Catherine Wallace (1992; 6 - 7) has identified three general purposes which readers have when reading: Reading for Survival, Reading for Learning, and Reading for Pleasure. A tourist checking the signs in a station in order to find the right train; a student poring over a thick textbook, stopping every so often to make notes; a young child following a story in the book as his mother reads it to him: all these people are reading, but in each case the reading clearly serves very different purposes and involves very different processes. In the case of foreign language students, what is important is the extent to which they can recognise this, interacting with and making sense of a particular text in whatever way and for whatever purpose seems to be most appropriate for them in the context.
