The finding of the study revealed that students have very limited reading experiences and did not use some important opportunities, therefore, they have deep rooted problems or challenges in reading skills; among those majority of students have the problem of extracting meaning from the reading comprehension and unable to infer gist from the text. The data collected from classroom observation showed that students encouraged to read aloud reading rather than silent reading, it influences on understand of the text. Students also have lack of cognitive strategies and meta cognitive awareness of reading comprehension. Then students could not resolve their reading difficulties or problem they encountered during reading lesson, therefore; reading activities become challenging for them. en_US
