Reading comprehension requires reading speed and quantity in order to have practical meaning. However, there is rarely time to spare in class for extensive reading, let alone covering appreciative reading. Appreciative reading encourages the acquisition of various ways of reading, making reading meaningful. Therefore, a novel reading section adopting an appreciative reading approach has been included in the reading comprehension course. This research reports on the reading appreciation practice of a class using a novel at advanced level, and examines notes and points for evaluation and improvement from the survey results.
